Technical Glitch

Vlad Putin can’t get his missile working:

A technical glitch thwarted the launch of Russian ballistic missiles in the Barents Sea on Tuesday during naval maneuvers overseen by President Vladimir Putin, who watched the massive exercise while decked out in naval officer’s garb aboard a nuclear submarine.

The failed launch – part of an exercise described as the largest show of Russian military might in more than 20 years – marred an event apparently aimed at playing up Putin’s image as a leader attempting to restore the country’s military power and global clout.

He swears it’s never happened before.
