October 1977
National Review;10/14/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 40, p1158
The article comments on the expiration of the Strategic Arms Limitations Talks (SALT)-I agreement between the U.S. and the Soviet Union on October 3, 1977. Each side publicly declared that it would go along with the terms of the expired agreement if the other side did, pending accord on SALT-II. Under SALT-I Moscow has gone ahead with development of advanced new weapons systems, including MERVing of older heavyweight missiles, deployment of more accurate and more massively protected missiles, the SS-18 potentially mobile system, and new nuclear submarines with longer range. Meanwhile the U.S. has for the most part marked time in actual deployed strategic defense.
