Arms sales: A useful foreign policy tool? — with Joe Biden (1981) | ARCHIVES

September 9, 1981: This AEI Public Policy Forum from 1981 is concerned solely with conventional arms. A vital factor is the extraordinary sophistication that has developed in conventional arms in the 1970s and 1980s. If these sophisticated elements are in the hands of nations whose borders lie in the volatile areas of confrontation between the interests of the United States and its allies and the Soviet Union, they are potential hazards to the security of the USA.

In 1981, transcripts were available by mail for a small fee. Today, they’re available to you for free at this link:

Les Aspin – Representative (D-Wisconsin)
Joe Biden – Senator (D-Delaware)
William Dickinson – Representative (R–Alabama)
General Brent Scowcroft (Retired) – Former Director of National Security Council
