Your bias sees these studies as part of a political movement, mine sees them as part of the strangely recursive science of anthropology. From the moment we are born to the day we lose our mind, watching others is how we navigate the society we find ourselves in. Those at the top of the totem pole are no longer trying to navigate, they are either trying to steer or have anchored in a safe and pleasant harbour.

I also doubt that any small state actor, no matter how apparently crazy, would try to do so because you just can't fight and win a nuclear war with Russia, China or the US.

Cuba would have done it in certain cases if Russia had given them control of the missiles. USSR was smart: they didn't give the Cubans control of the missiles.

Starting yet another world war, as if the first two weren't enough.

I don't think this would have happened. The elites in Europe were (and still are) very very anti-war (among each other, anyway) after WW2. The whole Euro thing and the open boarders (again, among each other) are heavily motivated by the goal of ensuring they won't go to war again.
