Ronald Reagan changed all
that, McFarlane said, by restor=
ing our economy, rebuilding our
military strength and inspiring
others to follow our lead. That's

McFarlane said, is that it might

McFarlane called passage of
the Gramm-Rudman deficit
reduction law, a "formula that
promises to give us very severe
problems in the international
`We have now linked reduc-
tion of the deficit to the defense
budget. Historically, we linked
defense to the seriousness of the
threat against us and spent

for arms reduction in a genera-

back on defense, we will send a
message to the Russians that
there is no reason to negotiate

but in international diplomacy,
they're just not enough."
