Getting Ready for 1982

September 1980
National Review;9/5/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 18, p1061
The article focuses on the preparations made by the U.S. and the Soviet Union for compliance with Strategic Arms Limitation Talks (SALT) I arms-control provisions in 1980. The two countries are reciprocally obligated to desist from interfering with each other's technical means for monitoring compliance with SALT I provisions. Nevertheless, the Soviet Union is demonstrably persevering in development of capabilities to destroy U.S. space satellites that possibly monitor the county. Meanwhile, putting resources into satellite-killers may simply not be a prudent investment for the U.S.
