August 1982
National Review;8/20/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 16, p1018
The article focuses on issues related to nuclear disarmament. Anti-nuclear demonstrators in London expressed their strong disapproval of nuclear incineration by buttonholing visitors to London. It is argued that the Soviet Union is never subject to any demonstrations for its missile capability.

It is viewed that if the U.S. oblige by dismantling its nuclear fence, the Russians will be at an advantage.
