[erix]: they've stuck nuclear missiles in Kaliningrad - they can just reach Berlin :)
[LanX]: naaah! Putin wouldn't nuke all the Russians in Berlin
[Your Mother]: Putin is a bad guy but he’s not that kind of bad guy. (Who would launch.)
[erix]: fortunately, Putin seems to be ill -- or at least, they're building a hospital for him and his cronies in Moscow
[erix]: nobody knows what kind it takes :)
[erix]: I say his seems a face that launches a thousand missiles :)
[Your Mother]: I say I do. :P
[Your Mother]: Missiles would be an idiot’s play. Putin is many things but he is not an idiot.
