You, Stevie, were dealing with teenage politics and I'll take good odds that you weren't one of the cool kids. That's why you're such a nasty little prick now.
Well, Stevie, take a look at what's happening while you fritter away this country's defence dollars on a wasted effort.
Russia's lower house of parliament, passed a 25 per cent increase in defence spending next year from $40 billion to $50 billion. Russia's three-year budget forecast includes further increases to $54.5 billion in 2010 and to $58 billion by 2011.Yeah, that doesn't look like a lot compared to the US defense budget.
Russia's military budget remains barely a tenth of the $480 billion spent by the US Pentagon this year. Mr Medvedev told defence chiefs last week that the Georgian war showed that Russia had to modernise its military as "one of our top priorities".Right. Except that the US government just had to bail itself out of a financial mess of its own making. Where does the money come from to fund their military adventures now?
Booming oil revenues allowed his predecessor Vladimir Putin to quadruple defence spending, with $189 billion earmarked to upgrade army and navy equipment by 2015.
And the big question is, who's got the money now?
Are you sure you middle school superheroes didn't just undo all of the work we did in the last half of the 20th Century?
This is for you. The OhMyGod!They'reDoingItAgain! edition. Enjoy.
