Summit--or Slippery Slope

July 1979
National Review;7/6/1979, Vol. 31 Issue 27, p841
This article contends that U.S. President Jimmy Carter's understanding of Strategic Arms Limitation II treaty with the Soviet Union does not serve the interest of the U.S. The Soviet Union and the U.S. held a summit meeting, the tenth time since the end of World War II, in Vienna, Austria. President Carter wants the U.S. Congress to approve the treaty. Soviet Union leader Leonid Brezhnev is ecstatic about the treaty and is confident his country will win the Cold War against the U.S.
