U.S. Policy in the Persian Gulf

July 21, 1988

The tragic accidental shooting down of the Iranian airliner with the loss of 290 lives is a sobering reminder of the limitations of technology.

I wonder if this fact will in any way influence those people in Washington who have voted billions for a "Star Wars" shield, which undoubtedly will also have imperfections and hence will fail.
