Espionage Activities of Chinese, Soviets Increase in California

December 03, 1988

Joe American and Ivan Russkie would be better served if there were no military secrets between the world's superpowers.

If the above statement is true, then counterintelligence efforts are not only a waste of time and money, but a deterrent to everyone's shared goal, a legacy of peace for our children.

If our self-appointed protectors knew every Soviet plan of attack and their protectors knew ours, wouldn't everyone be more secure? Can't we comprehend that this is not the age of rocks versus sabers, muskets against hand grenades? Don't we understand that the latest jargon is a humongous death machine, capable of burying us twice versus a doomsday announcer?

Think about it. The intelligence community is a misnomer, a dinosaur whose time has passed. Don't allow the dirty secrets of Star Wars, stealth bombers, etc. to become our epitaph.

The truth shall set us free.
