Reagan S Stance

FEATURED ARTICLES
OPINION
June 8, 1986
My worst fears that the Reagan Administration was never really interested in concrete arms agreements with the Soviet Union were confirmed by statements made by Secretary of State George P. Shultz and Defense Secretary Weinberger that the United States is no longer abiding by the 1979 Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty (SALT II) and has rejected Soviet efforts to win a long-term commitment to the existing 1972 Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. In my opinion the real reasons behind this negative and dangerous attitude is that the right-wing elements in the Reagan Administration are more interested in securing profits for the missile manufacturers than acting for the security of the American people, who are being pushed to the bring of a nuclear holocaust by this acceleration of the arms race.
