Advance space program & SDI; restrict technology transfers

The President [should] evaluate, not merely the perceived present intentions of actual adversaries, but, more importantly, to prepare for the potential capabilities which others may possess later in this decade. To that end, I would restrict the transfer of US technology, move forward with our space program, and act immediately to fully develop and deploy SDI by giving the requisite six months’ notice, beginning on that first day, for withdrawal from the ABM Treaty of 1972.

Restrict technology transfer to present & future adversaries

The job of the President and the Congress is to evaluate, not merely the perceived present intentions of actual adversaries, but, more importantly, to prepare for the potential capabilities which others may possess later in this decade. To that end, I would restrict the transfer of US technology, move forward with our space program, and act immediately to fully develop and deploy SDI by giving the requisite six months’ notice, beginning on that first day, for withdrawal from the ABM treaty of 1972.
