That's actually not that surprising to me at all. Nuclear weapons aren't really weapons that can be used. As such, if given a promising and flexible alternative which can see immediate use (and which doesn't immediately identify you as the culprit, unlike a nuclear weapon), nations would likely dive right in. Just look at the US and drones, for example. In other words, the reason they were so effective at "silencing" nuclear weapons is because they were such an effective replacement for them, and not because they brought some magical peace to the world.
