Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I don't want to further lengthen this sidetrack, but I believe I can pinpoint where you started to read Sting's lyrics differently from others. You didn't quote the full first verse -- the second line you quoted in fact refers to what you didn't quote, not Khrushchev.

In Europe and America, there's a growing feeling of hysteria
Conditioned to respond to all the threats
In the rhetorical speeches of the Soviets
Mr. Krushchev said we will bury you
I dont subscribe to this point of view
It would be such an ignorant thing to do
If the russians love their children too

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
