Cartoon about MX Missiles

Title

Cartoon about MX Missiles

Description

Political cartoon by Mike Keefe about the MX missiles. The text reads, "So you think a destabilizing missile deployed in a vulnerable silo will lead to arms reductions and better relations with the Russians?". The response say, "Sure! The mood in the Kremlin has already improved. They seem to be laughing a lot." Based on the reference to the MX missile, the cartoon was probably created between 1983 and 1988. This is one of a collection of digitized objects from the Les AuCoin Papers (MS.147) at the Pacific University Archives. See also PUA_MS147_93 through PUA_MS147_110 for other materials related to nuclear arms control.
