Default OT: Grin and bear it

Check this article, noting that this happened less than a month ago


And here's an accompanying picture...

The picture is large, I'd guess it's 1600x1200, but it's on a hella fast server, so it DL's quick. Note the shutter speed on the camera was so fast, it has frozen the props on the Bear perfectly, with no blurring at all.

SO, Russia is spying on North America. I'm not surprised. I saw an image a week or so ago showing the level of democracy around the world. Russia was notable for not being considered very democratic. Don't get the impression that I value democracy all that much, but it shows that Russia is considered a rogue and untrustworthy.

2,200 intercepts in five years? From who? That many, it's either aggression by somebody or normal accidents.

I'm thinking accidents.

Sounds like the Xcom games were simplified for playability's sake.

its not spying. its posturing. its when we both puff out our chests and act tough. you can watch pidgeons do the same thing.
