American intelligence officials are racing to understand a mysterious explosion that released radiation off the coast of northern Russia last week, apparently during the test of a new type of nuclear-propelled cruise missile hailed by President Vladimir V. Putin as the centerpiece of Moscow’s arms race with the United States.
If only the russians weren't always interested in a dick-measuring contest.
If they put that kind of effort, time, and money into something that would actually benefit humanity, their country wouldn't be the choad of the world. Seriously, when was the last time they cured a disease or invented something that wasn't a war machine? Tetris is all I can come up with. They're truly pathetic.
They so desperately want to be relevant on the world stage, and they just don't understand that their barren wasteland of a grey country will never be the envy of the world, no matter how much chest-thumping and sabre-rattling they do.
