MOSCOW -- Russia successfully test-launched a newly developed intercontinental ballistic missile on Wednesday for the first time under water, the navy said.

Russia's navy is to get two newly equipped nuclear submarines in 2006, armed with the new Bulava intercontinental ballistic missiles, the navy commander said in April. The missiles have a range of 5,000 miles.

The fact that Russia has missiles does not surprise me. What is alarming is that these missiles have a 5,000 mile range on them. This is not good.

They've had missiles with that kind of range for almost 50 years.

Frankly, any nation that can build launchers capable of putting large payloads into low Earth orbit can build ICBM's that can hit anyplace on the planet, that club includes Europe, the US, Russia, Japan, India, China and probably a couple others that I can't think of right now.
