"anyone who thinks that the united states was ever under existential threat is paranoid" Strange thing to say for the people who have coined paranoia, isn't it? Not revealed until 2002 was that a trapped Soviet nuclear sub was extremely close to lunching its missiles at American targets.Of the 3 senior officers on the sub (all of whom had to agree in order to fire missiles)one opposed the firing of the missiles. On that thread was the world saved from a nuclear confrontation. There were other dangerous moments too. Existential threat was far more real for the world generally than it is for Israel's existence, buttressed as it is by the 5th most powerful military on the planet.
