National Review;11/25/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 46, p1344
The article focuses on the foreign relations between the U.S. and the Soviet Union regarding disarmament and arms control negotiations. The U.S. has highly sophisticated sensors and satellites which can monitor major explosions. But it will be difficult to detect whether the Soviet Union is really destroying or simply hiding its long-range missiles. The Soviet Union wants a total moratorium on nuclear explosions. But the Soviet Union had ignored the first moratorium on atmospheric tests by conducting a series of explosions.
