Full Text:
Peace Shield The United States - The Coalition for the Strategic Defense Initiative, which supports President Reagan's proposal for a star wars space-based missile defense system, has aired t.v. commercials aimed at convincing viewers of the feasibility and wisdom of the plan. The 30-second commercial uses a child's stick-figure drawings and a little girl's voice to explain "Peace Shield" that "...would stop missiles in space so they couldn't hit our house. Then nobody could win a war... and if nobody could win a war, there's no reason to start one." Illustrated History--1985 © 1985 Mariona Barkus
