Russia Ups the Ante on the Bulls*** at the UN
The rhetoric was laughable, but sadly, some in the weaklings in West will again likely pay attention

Eleven time zones is a lot, folks. When the people of St. Petersburg think about lunch, the people of Vladivostok are already ringing in tomorrow. There is a lot that is intoxicating about the size of Russia. Still, very few of these geographic…
