ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the statement, Disarmament is the reduction of armed forces and armaments, as to a limitation set by treaty. The Soviets seem to mean business about slowing down, perhaps, even stopping the arms race. The United States believes that the burden of armaments on the Russian economy has become so heavy that the Soviets want to make the deal with the West for disarmament. The United States enters these discussions with a well-defined program on disarmament. The premise is that it would be safe for the United States to destroy its atom bombs under an unenforceable system of disarmament-one, which, since it would be unenforceable, would put faith in Soviets and Chinese Communist promises.
