In the above clip from The Heritage Foundation’s documentary 33 Minutes, Margaret Thatcher talks about how President Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative forced the Soviet’s to the negotiating table over nuclear proliferation; ultimately lessoning the danger of global conflict. Withdrawing from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty allowed the US to turn Reagan’s vision into reality. With the present and growing danger of nuclear proliferation, it is vital the U.S. government build the missile defense systems capable of defending our country against such attacks. Watch the clip.
