One famous anecdote from the war had a general borrowing a mobile phone from a journalist in order to call in commands to his troops.


I guess this is why you have to kill all your journalists. Where else are you going to get the cell phones necessary to issue commands to your troops?

Apparently if the flyovers fail, Russia can always attack the US with killer leeches.

Quote:
Today the center sells the leeches to plastic surgeons, who put them on wounds to reduce the chance of scarring, to dentists, who apply them on gums to reduce swelling, and even to gynecologists, who use them to treat sexually transmitted diseases (Yes. You imagine right.).


Gynecologists? Leeches? The mere concept of gynecological leeches makes me wince.

Really Russia? Really?

Granted, polarization is great for global stability (ala Cold War), but I think the new superpower matchup is going the be US v China (an interestingly incestuous bunch).

Just stop it, Russia.
