Your Daily Photo (It Was From a Position of Uncompromised Strength Reagan Negotiated a Reduction in Nuclear Arms Edition)
A reminder, that we faced evil, unblinkingly, with strength. We met, and dealt, but did not surrender the option to build defensive weapons. The 'failure' at Reykjavik was a key component in reducing the threat that the Soviet Union posed, and helped hasten the collapse of the Iron Curtain. Reagan was willing to deal, but he was not willing to compromise.
If only we had a President again who reserved that attitude against our adversaries, rather than against his political opponents.
The seeds for Obama's defeat in 2012 are being sown, and watered by his own incompetence, hopefully he won't do too much damage between now and then.
