Soviet Morality & U.S. Nuclear Strategy

Kintner, William R.
September 1978
National Review;9/1/1978, Vol. 30 Issue 35, p1071
The article focuses on nuclear strategy of the U.S. government under President Jimmy Carter, towards the Soviet Union. Carter's attitude toward nuclear weapons has been remarkably consistent. In March 1977, Carter presented to Moscow two alternative proposals for limiting the expansion of nuclear arsenals. The Soviet Union rejected these proposals stating that the proposal was intended to secure unilateral advantages for the U.S. The pattern of the U.S. defense suggests that the country is relying on sea-based system.
