It was with some sadness I read of Saparmurat Niyazov's unexpected demise. Besides being a post-communist despot in the best tradition of central asian newly liberated Soviet Republics, he was an author offering free advice in his latest book which I, myself helped hype. It was with a sense of frustration that I looked for a copy in our local library.Hopefully in the future we can understand what he really meant.
In the meanwhile Satan flies again in the skies of Siberia. SATAN in this case is a NATO designation of the most feared Russian ICBM, a true killer of worlds which contains 10 multi-megaton warheads on each rocket. Five of them would take out every state capitol in the U.S. or all of Texas. Merry Christmas.
