But taking that one no from the Soviet Union, we then went back into negotiations on their terms. Because Mr. Carter had cancelled the B-1 bomber, delayed the MX, delayed the trident submarine, delayed the cruise missiles, shut down the minute man missile production line. The Soviet Union sat at the table knowing that we had gone forward with unilateral concessions without out any reciprocation from them whatsoever.
I am not talking of scrapping. I am talking of taking the treaty and going back into negotiations. And I would say to the Soviet Union, we will sit and negotiate with you as long as it takes. To not only have legitimate arms negotiation but to have a reduction of these nuclear weapons to the point that neither one of us represents and threat to the other. That is hardly throwing away a treaty and being opposed to arms limitation
