Malcolm Wallop, RIP
Steven Hayward has a moving tribute to Senator Wallop’s greatness here.
The Senator advocated a missile defense system in 1970’s, before Ronald Reagan was President. Hayward calls him the father of Reagan’s strategic defense initiative. According to Hayward Wallop mastered both the politics and the science of it. That’s easy to believe, he was a great and smart man.
Senator Wallop wrote several books and articles on the idiocy of unilateral nuclear disarmament, such as The Arms Control Delusion, with Angelo Codevilla.
