First of all, this title copied and pasted from the yahoo.com title.
They did NOT fire nuclear missiles. Stupid yahoo.
They fired nuclear-carrying-capability rockets that were carrying dummy war heads.

The story;

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia successfully tested on Friday its two new Bulava intercontinental missiles, which experienced several failures in the past.

The Defence Ministry said the 12-meter-long Bulava, or Mace, which Moscow aims to make the cornerstone of its nuclear arsenal, was fired from a submarine in the Arctic White Sea and hit the target, a designated polygon, on Kamchatka peninsula in Russia's far east.

"The launch was carried out from (the submarine in) submerged position in the White Sea," ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov was quoted by state-run RIA news agency as saying. "Its warheads reached the polygon (target) on time."

The missiles carry dummies rather than nuclear warheads as Russia is a signatory of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) which bans all nuclear explosions.

The Bulava had failed half of its previous trials, calling into question the expensive missile program. The previous launch in June from the same submarine was a success though.

A Bulava missile weighs 36.8 tonnes and can travel a distance of 8,000 km (5,000) miles carrying 6-10 nuclear warheads, which would deliver an impact of up to 100 times the atomic blast that devastated Hiroshima in 1945.

Some of the funny comments:

America and Russia will destroy each other, and we Muslims will be the last one standing and laughing.God's punishment for your support of Israel.


Think of the progress the world could have if everyone concentrated on peace and prosperity rather than war. Such a waste of time, money and people.


You people are funny. The US and Russia realized long ago that any nuclear exchange would doom us both. The only reason systems are kept in place and publicly tested is to ensure the other side remembers that.


Neither Russia, nor the U.S. or China will be the one to use the nuclear weapon. If anyone, it will be Pakistan or India.


The headlines stated "Russia launched two nuclear missiles." No! They launched
nuclear-carrying-capability rockets that were carrying dummy war heads. This headline is a bit fear mongering.


Old news... We have em, the Russians have em... Oh well. get over it.

At least the headline is. I didn't even read the post.
If it's as dumb as the headline, I'm glad I didn't.
Just read it over and keep thinking about it.

I wonder if these will soon be available in Bulgaria as well. :headscratch: :alien51:
