Three Typed Letters Signed from Rusk on Cuba, the Soviet Union, Iraq, and George H.W. Bush

Athens, GA: [s.i.], 1991. Near Fine. Item #28058

Athens, GA: [s.i.], 1991. Three typed letters signed by Dean Rusk on The University of Georgia stationary. Letters are to three different recipients and dated August and September 1991 and each signed by Rusk. Folds and touch of rubbing to letters; Near Fine. While short, in each letter the former Secretary of State does give his insights into the Cold War and affairs of the time in each.

On the Soviet Union and nuclear weapons: "During the worst of the Cold War years, we and the Soviet Union accepted tacitly that a nuclear war must not occur. With a little luck we can extend that 45 years indefinitely into the future.

On George H.W. Bush: "He seems to have acted sensibly and has kept the rhetoric muted. My general support of his foreign policy does not extend to his domestic policy, which I think is sadly lacking."

On Cuba: "We see no evidence thus far that Castro is willing to make a compromise to repaire the situation with OAS and the United States."
