NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN (ALMOST)
8th December, 1987 : President Reagan and the Soviet leader, Mr Gorbachev, made history today as they signed the first-ever treaty to cut the size of their nuclear arsenals. The accord, signed at the Washington summit, provides for dismantling of all Soviet and American medium- and shorter-range missiles. Once approved the treaty will require the dismantling, within three years, of all 1,752 Soviet and 859 American missiles with ranges of 300 to 3,400 miles.
[A quarter of century later, the Left still peddles the myth of Reagan as a war-monger.]
