or should the fact there was a small explosion in Russia involving a release of radiation be a bigger deal? WTF?

 

UPDATE:  Here is a much more detailed analysis of what we know or think we know.

Sometimes you just have to wonder.  I am sure this guy was thinking, “It is just an empty tube”, but seriously, did you think that was going to pass without notice?

This sounds like good news.  Sooner rather than later one of these systems is going to get a real world workout.

I didn’t realize that so many Nike missiles were deployed around Cleveland. (h/t to Jim Bates for the pointer)

Turkey crosses a line

They have started receiving S-400 SAMs from Russia.  This means they won’t be getting F-35s.  Frankly, given its current government, I don’t see Turkey staying in NATO.  I am not sure they were ever really a good fit to begin with.

More great news from the region most likely to start a hot war.  The Chinese have put anti-ship missiles on the man-made islands in the South China Sea.  This was the inevitable end of the Chinese behavior in the region.  Where do we go from here?  Who knows?
