MOSCOW - Russia's nuclear forces reportedly are preparing their largest maneuvers in two decades, an exercise involving the test-firing of missiles and flights by dozens of bombers in a massive simulation of an all-out nuclear war.
 


President Vladimir Putin is expected to personally oversee the maneuvers, which are apparently aimed at demonstrating the revival of the nation's military might and come ahead of Russian elections in March.

The business newspaper Kommersant said the exercise was set for mid-February and would closely resemble a 1982 Soviet exercise dubbed the "seven-hour nuclear war" that put the West on edge. "

heres a quote i liked:

"U.S. concerns about authoritarian trends in the Kremlin's domestic policy, and Russia's perceived attempts to assert its authority over ex-Soviet neighbors. "

try and stop us and it will turn into a real scenario very quickly!!!, didnt russia had a similar excersize in 1999?,, only it was smaller, a few tu-95 and tu-160 took off for combat excersize near alaska.

Now this just makes me paranoid - is it really just a coincidence that this same time period is the same as al Qa'idas warnings for February.
