Nuclear Update

It is pretty clear that North Korea has made a third nuclear weapon test, which has even made China sit up and take notice, although it is unlikely that China will end up doing much to dissuade North Korea. 

Meanwhile, Iran has installed new centrifuges that cut down the time needed to enrich nuclear fuel.

Obama's reaction? According to the New York Times:
President Obama will use his State of the Union speech on Tuesday to reinvigorate one of his signature national security objectives — drastically reducing nuclear arsenals around the world — after securing agreement in recent months with the United States military that the American nuclear force can be cut in size by roughly a third.
