A change in balance of power?

As Obama’s administration suggests shifts in its budget from Nuclear non-Proliferation measures to improving its nuclear arsenal, one has to think what triggers to the change in resource allocation. In FP’s article, it states that the change in budget is due to over spending during the modernisation of its nuclear arsenal. As a result, the administration had to scramble for funds to continue supporting the programme. Interestingly, the areas that they chose to cut budget were the non-nuclear proliferation measures…

While I do not think that the current North Korea crisis is genuine beyond North Korea’s bluster, is this the trigger for the change?
