Video: Russia Gives Norway a Free Fireworks Show

Did I find this wonderful quote myself?  No way!  From The Atlantic via The Weekly Standard via the Associated Press.  I’m full of link love today.

Photographs and amateur video footage of the bluish-white in the Norwegian skies have been circulating on the Internet since Wednesday. The ministry did not confirm that these lights were the result of the failed launch but military analysts said the lights were clearly a result from explosion of the Bulava.

This kind of light show comes from a failed missile launch,” said Pavel Felgenhauer, an independent military analyst. “Russia has run free fireworks for the Norwegians.”

The poor Bulava project.  If it were a racehorse, they would put it out of its misery.
