Former Soviet Leader Criticizes U.S. War Effort During Kentucky Visit

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev
criticizes the United States for its approach to the war on
terrorism.

Gorbachev said during a stop in Louisville yesterday that the
war should be fought not only with "tanks and missiles" but by
addressing the problems that leave people humiliated and willing to
turn to terrorism.

Gorbachev also said however that the U.S. has set an example in
racial integration, in areas ranging from arts to sports, for a
divided world. He said the country has shown it is able to overcome
its legacy of segregation.

Gorbachev was in Louisville for a speech at the Kentucky Center
sponsored by the World Affairs Council of Kentucky/Southern
Indiana.
