Nice Rokcet Launch There, Putin; North Korea Is Proud!

Great to see the idiot government I disowned at the age of 9 sticks to the old Soviet mentality when it comes to safety precautions - "take a gulp of moonshine and hope it doesn't blow up". A public bungle of this magnitude on foreign soil (Kazakhstan was part of the USSR but today is an independent country) is a significant indicator of just how little management competence and control Moscow has over its subordinates. The Russian bureaucrat quoted in the article even agrees. It's the perfect exclamation mark for my theory that no matter how much Vladimir Putin waves his *ahem* wand at the US - we have no reason to take him seriously.
