The Stakes Are That Big

Buckley Jr., WM.F.
February 1982
National Review;2/19/1982, Vol. 34 Issue 3, p192
The article discusses the role of former U.S. President Ronald Reagan in settling the conflict between Poland and Soviet Union. Reagan is justifiably accused for not acting decisively in the matter of Poland. Reagan in his defense said that it was a zero-option negotiation. In the negotiation, Reagan indicated that either the Soviet Union would withdraw its SS-20 missiles or else the U.S. government would proceed to deploy. It is expected that the Soviet negotiators will accelerate the propaganda aimed at dissipating the European attitude towards other nations.
