I don't really understand why we need to cut our nuclear forces. It will not impact Iran's desire to acquire nuclear weapons. After all, Iran is more concerned about Israel then a US nuclear attack. Cutting our nuclear and conventional forces at the same time will not broker peace, it will merely leave us in a weakened state in the event of a conflict. We've seen in movies and books where the hero, by putting down his weapon, causes the same action in his opponent. In reality, the nation that is disarming is usually the one that ends up getting attacked.
