Incorrectly. The Soviet Union's greatest propaganda was convincing the world it actually had the resources to mount a third world war.

Dunno. Everyone quite swiftly agreed that mutually assured destruction was a problem and a lot of resources were put into scaling down the problem to a sensible amount of tension. The world's current problem is that it doesn't acknowledge problems and in fact tends to excuse them.
