      Russia Flexes Nuclear Muscle

      Russia launched a number of various missiles this weekend. At least one of them was more than two decades old. It was an intercontinental ballistic missile fired at a target thousands of kilometers away, and President Dmitry Medvedev observed that one.

      He told the military men who fired it that it hit its target, and congratulated them, according to AP. It did not show evidence of a nuclear warhead, but Russia's armament includes many.
