I think it doesn't just work as the Cold War analogy it was meant to be, but also as a more general story about war and peace.

Now these are just ideas distilled from the movie, I can understand that you or other folks consider TUC as mediocre, e.g. the whole Gulag / Rura Penthe part is pretty cheesy.
I totally agree. The last shot of the conference at the end of the film with all the aliens clapping and posing on the stage was cheesy as well. Good points.
