Hmm, let's see.

Nukes => cold war => arpanet => internet

Yup, looks ok.

To borrow from snarky comments past:

Unless Vendor C has introduced a "no nuclear-apocalpyse" command that I
need to enable in IOS, it seems that this thread has wandered far from
the flock and subsequently lost most any relevance to the listserv
and/or topic that spawned it.  Cold War strategy is fascinating and all
(I do mean that in a non-snarky way) but does it really belong on NANOG
after it has seemingly dropped any pretense of being an analogy for
anything list-relevant?
