Gorbachev and the Summit

December 20, 1987

The INF accord got universal acclaim and approval simply because it represents a symbolic first step of the hitherto insane nuclear arms race.

Credit is due not only to those directly involved in the INF pact, but also to all the peace activists like the older people willing to be arrested at Las Vegas test sites for the sake of younger generations.

Why not hold off the sticky issue of the strategic defense initiative for the time being and concentrate on more important issues like appointing a neutral scientific body to work out and the resolve complex problems of START verification and compromise?
