When a country has nuclear weapons, the US stops meddling in its internal affairs and begins to treat it as an equal.
So your thinking is that the USSR/Russia, UK, US, and China didn't/don't meddle with each other?
You think India, Pakistan, and China (with a little help from North Korea) will be an "island of stability" and peace, and a lack of meddling? Has North Korea grown more peaceful since obtaining nuclear weapons? (Maybe they'll demonstrate their commitment to peace the next time they launch missiles OVER Japan.)
You want to be "equal" with North Korea, a country that has starved millions of its people that it could have fed, did didn't, diverting food aid to the military? (A minor slice of the military budget would have fed them as well.) A country that puts three generations of a family in prison camps that kill large percentages of their inmates put there for such crimes as telling a joke about the Glorious Leader, or maybe not cheering enthusiastically enough for the increase in chocolate ration from 25g to 15g?
You think it was good to be "equal" with Stalin's Soviet Union, that only a few years previously killed 7,000,000 Ukrainians by confiscating their food and starving them to death for not being enthusiastic about the Soviet government? The Soviet Union killed far more people than Nazi Germany (after helping the Nazis invade Poland, and prepare for war against the rest of Europe). The Soviet government that spread its tentacles across the world, even controlling many in the US?
You want to be "equal" with Iran, an genocidal genuine theocracy* that wants to be the leader of the Islamic world as a competitor to al Qaeda, has missiles that will reach Europe now, and warhead designs just waiting for fissionable material? A country that makes no secret about its genocidal desires against Israel, and longs to destroy your own country even while it fosters the cult of the suicide bomber?
Might I suggest you may have a pathological desire for "equality" and probably a warped view of the US?
Might I suggest you watch this some time? What do you want to be equal to?
*Not the rhetorical or pretend kind that some people want to claim about the US
