The forcing down of our U-2 spy plane canceling the scheduled summit meeting between President Eisenhower and Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev was a considerable setback in our efforts toward better relations between the U.S. and the Soviet Union.
Now we have launched a satellite to spy on Russia. What is the difference? Sophistication? Will we never learn? Those who do not heed the mistakes of history are destined to repeat them.
How will we ever slow our determined, devastating, destructive, wasteful military-industrial complex?
