We are moving into an era that is as dangerous, if not more dangerous, as the cold war because we do not have that focus on a strategic relationship between Moscow and Washington {2}.

This is even more dramatic when you realize that the US and Soviets came within seconds of all-out nuclear war on numerous occasions during the Cold War. And only the courage of US and Soviet individuals to say no {3} when their superiors told them to fire nuclear weapons – in the face of mistaken readings – saved the planet from nuclear war {4}.
