Arms: Drama and Reality

Crozier, Brian
March 1983
National Review;3/4/1983, Vol. 35 Issue 4, p238
The article supports the U.S. position on arms-control negotiation with the Soviet Union in Vienna, Austria. The U.S. position calls for two options. First, the destruction of the Soviet's SS-20 missiles, with the U.S. abandoning plans to deploy Pershing II and cruise missiles. Second, the reduction of deployed SS-20, to be matched by a corresponding reduction of Pershing II and cruise missiles. The U.S. negotiating team must seize every moment to counter Soviet propaganda against these options.
