Monday, September 30, 1991 THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER NationA-3 No peace dividend in sight, despite dramatic arms cuts m iii u .nihil . i-iiii p mmm i .i i THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON - Administration officials said Sunday there will be no short-run savings in defense costs from President Bush's dramatic nuclear weapons stand-down. "Over the next few months, or in fiscal year '92, there are added costs with terminating contracts, moving systems around, destroying warheads, etc., that had not previously been expected," Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney said on ABC's This Week With David Brinkley. Cheney said the nation's military must be ready to fight a regional conflict anywhere in the world and that the Strategic Defense Initiative is needed in a world of nuclear proliferation. He defended the B-2 bomber program as necessary to the country's defense and said the armed forces already are in the midst of a massive build-down that will cut their manpower by 25. The need to prevail in a regional conflict like Operation Desert Storm forms "the basic underlying assumptions by which we size our forces today," said Cheney. National Security Adviser Brent Scow-croft said that "five years out, I think there will be a peace dividend," and "hopefully it will be" sizable. But "I honestly don't know how much," said Scowcroft, speaking on NBC's Meet the Press. Defense spending is heading down to 3.6 of gross national product, the lowest level since 1939, said Undersecretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz. "The United States can afford the programs it needs and still afford an adequate defense," Wolfowitz said on CNN's Newsmaker Sunday. The administration got an expression of support from one congressional Democrat, Sen. Sam Nunn of Georgia, chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. "I do think those who believe we're going to be able to declare a peace dividend and have a huge amount of money for domestic purposes are not looking at the fiscal picture of the country," said Nunn. "Most of the defense savings are going to have to go to try to meet the deficit, which is growing," added Nunn, speaking on CBS's Face the Nation. Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev welcomed Bush's disarmament proposals but offered no immediate reciprocal cuts. Bush administration officials defended the Soviet response to the U.S. initiative. "It's just as if somebody had hit us with this cold within 24 hours, we would not prepare a substantive response and say, 'OK, we'll take down the following systems,' " said Cheney. "It'll take some time for them to work it. But I think they will." The Associated PressGeorge Tames Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney discusses weapon cuts. A cut here means a cut there Bush may dislike budget equation THE NEW YORK TIMES WASHINGTON President Bush's dramatic moves to reduce American nuclear forces may lead to cuts in other military programs that he would like to keep and could affect domestic spending as well, highly placed Democrats said Sunday.

Nunn, D-Ga., said on CBS' Face the Nation that Bush's discussion of the reduced Soviet threat would affect the "dynamics" of a Senate-House conference on military spending legislation. And for himself, Nunn said he would like to see 1 a sharp reduction in eventual purchases of the B-2, which he has championed, to about half of the 75 bombers the Air Force has sought. Bush's speech was seen by highly placed Capitol Hill aides and leading Democratic politicians as also likely to weigh heavily on congressional budget actions next year and to make it much easier for Democrats campaigning for president to urge that the cuts in military spending be used for domestic programs. The congressional aides said the speech also was likely to lead to a review of last year's budget agreement, which bars using money from military budget cuts for domestic programs, when Congress reviews spending decisions next year.

Bush proposed that the United States and Soviet Union reduce their nuclear weapons below the levels required by the recently signed Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty. . The Foreign Ministry issued China's first response to the initiative, which Bush announced Friday. The United States and the Soviet Union "have a special responsibility for nuclear disarmament" because they have the largest nuclear arsenals, it said. The statement made no reference to China's own nuclear arsenal, the smallest among the five known nuclear powers.
