Sure (and I love that story of how when America got hold of a Russian fighter plane they found it was full of decades old transistors), but no one knew that at the time. Indeed, America being convinced of it could have still led to something very, very nasty as they more than had the capability.

Dunno. Everyone quite swiftly agreed that mutually assured destruction was a problem and a lot of resources were put into scaling down the problem to a sensible amount of tension. The world's current problem is that it doesn't acknowledge problems and in fact tends to excuse them.
I refuse to acknowledge that.
