"As for the enemies of freedom, those who are potential adversaries, they will be reminded that peace is the highest aspiration of the American people. We will negotiate for it, sacrifice for it; we will not surrender for it, now or ever." - Reagan, January 20, 1981

"In Vietnam, we tried and failed in a just cause. No More Vietnams can mean we will not try again. It should mean we will not fail again." - from No More Vietnams by Richard Nixon

Israel-South Africa nuke cooperation is old news - in Ostrovsky's 1990 book; 1983 CIA NIE

Israel-South Africa nuke cooperation reported yesterday is not news to people who either payed attention during the time (I wasn't alive yet) or bothered to do any in depth reading about either of the two nations' nuclear programs.

This is from the 1990 paperback edition of Ex-Mossad officer Victor Oskrovsky's "By way of Deception"

It was also reported in a 1983 CIA NIE, and the mysterious Sep 22 1979 detonation was also discussed in a different report dated Dec 1979.
