Mother Russia Loves Her Some ICBMs

Russia's been going missle test crazy recently. Considering the rise of islamic fundamentalism within its borders, the steady revocation of civil liberties, the almost total disintegration balanced government, and its cozy relationship with Iran, I'd say there is cause for concern.

My favorite part of the article is this:

“For the key point about all six major missile tests that the Russian armed forces conducted in late September and early October is that the weapons actually worked. The rocket engines fired and the missiles went where they were supposed to.

“This was a striking contrast to what happened in two of the last three tests of America's anti-ballistic missile interceptor rockets. The high-tech, state-of-the-art, incredibly sensitive and sophisticated guidance systems never had a chance to strut their stuff because the rocket engines never ignited in the first place and the rockets stayed on the ground.”
