Fear became established in the minds of the people of the United States during n the “war on terror.” Warnings from the White House and its critics reinforced each other, creating an echo chamber of public fears. Nuclear anxieties after 9/11 motivated the Bush administration to be clearer with the truth. These anxieties were justified, but they caused the distraction of many Americans. It is noted that exceptional leadership and dogged persistence were important to the possible decrease of nuclear dangers during the Cold War. Five particularly horrific years of living dangerously in the nuclear age are observed: 1945, 1949–1950, 1962, 1983, and 2001. NSC 68 and the Gaither Committee report provide two of the significant clarion calls of nuclear danger. The strategic concept of George W. Bush for preventing new nuclear dangers primarily depended on U.S. military dominance. Cohesion among major powers was one of the casualties of the second U.S. war against Saddam Hussein.
