Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The Kremlin broke its silence Tuesday on the apparent explosion of a nuclear-powered cruise missile during a test, saying that accidents "happen" but that Russia remained "far ahead" in the development of advanced weaponry. The Russian military on Tuesday told residents of a village near a navy testing range to evacuate, but cancelled the order hours later, adding to the uncertainty and confusion fueled by a missile explosion last week in the far north of Russia.

Wow. I never heard of nuclear powered missiles. Russia, and the USSR before have long proven they don't know how to handle nuclear power. From Chernobyl, to several submarines, and now nuke powered missiles. They'll do more damage to themselves than their adversairies given enough time,

I've never heard of "adversairies" either but I'll just turn and walk away. :-)
