The cold war could be kept in balance because there were relatively few players and they were relatively sane.

Throwing in non-NPT members like North Korea, Pakistan and Turkey messes with that balance. Five adults can balance on a cliff edge. Five adults and seven screaming, fighting children can't.

Add in sub-launched missiles and the nutters start thinking that they might get deniability for long enough to get away with it.
