It's probably nothing....

Russian officials announced that they will be deploying the RS-28 Sarmat ICBM in 2018.

The respective moves come as Russia continues its massive revamp of its military capabilities, while Obama continues his goal to decommission nuclear arsenals worldwide. What makes the missile particularly deadly is its potential to carry up to 15 individual nuclear warheads. The elderly Minuteman III is not likely to be able to provide assured deterrence as enemy missile defenses continue to improve rapidly. Woodpile Report

Your Say

Hmm. What have I been saying about Russia? Oh, I forgot. I'm a NeoCon.
Elsewhere, I read that Obama is set to become the only president to come into and leave office fighting the same war. If you discount the Indian Campaigns (why you would, I don't know, but follow this) then Obama's policies of ignore and appease have given us straight war for going on his 8 years. And that after the long efforts at (fucked up but still efforts) pacifying the ME.

Don't shoot me. I'm just the piano player. If we don't get mean soon, the whole world will be on our necks. Clue: isolation is not a policy solution to this circumstance.
