Missiles

September 23, 1988

The INF missiles are being destroyed; simply crushed, pulverized and dumped in the bin. Could we not just disarm them and use those expensive casings and rocket motors for educational purposes? Could we not donate these marvels of modern engineering to schools of higher learning as exhibits and for static tests and simulations? Could we not display them in parks and exhibit halls to remind the public about the peaceful uses of rocketry for satellite communication, exploration and most important, marking the end of the INF class of missiles?

The Soviets would understand, wouldn't they? They might emulate us, maybe!
