Best Answer

Americans did worry that they might end up in a war with Russia since the leaders were so "afraid" of the communists. They really disliked the idea of fighting in Korea and Viet Nam. Military morale was at an all time low after those wars. It took the Gulf War to be proud of their military might again.
