Why are 'experts' unconcerned about the need to modernize US nuclear deterrent in the face of threats from North Korea and Iran?

NY Times:

Trump Forges Ahead on Costly Nuclear Overhaul

The Air Force has announced new contracts for nuclear cruise and ground-based missiles, even as some experts call the programs, which have been embraced by President Trump, unnecessary and dangerous.
Diplomacy has failed to deter the that from rogue states like North Korea and Iran and it looks like some are making the same mistake they made when they opposed missile defense.  Improving the US nuclear deterrent should be a priority.

After all, it would be a shame to see all those liberal bastions hit by enemy nuclear attacks.  If you look at the areas targeted by North Korea they all voted for Democrats in the last election.  While I don't agree with Democrats on most things< I do not want to see them exterminated by enemy missiles.
