Circumstances are somewhat different now from back then. And the convenience of a "War" upon which to push the blame, would be appealing to some in power - perhaps this is where we're heading.

COVID failed to cull the population significantly, so the Nuclear option may be the only option left in these mad Politicians playbooks.
