Let’s set the scene, first.
A country long considered a satellite state, almost a colony, of a nuclear superpower changes its government. The new government rejects its former connections with the superpower, and tries to build an alliance with an opposing superpower.
The first superpower feels threatened. It masses its armed forces close to the offending nation. It threatens to restore the previous status quo by force.
Meanwhile, the other nuclear superpower ships heavy weapons to its new ally.
Nuclear war seems imminent.
You probably think I’m writing about the current situation in Ukraine. I'm not. I’m describing the Cuban Missile Crisis.
