Vladimir Putin has an election this month, so he is putting on a grand show of badass bravado, announcing via Twitter today that Russia now has nuclear-powered cruise missiles with unlimited range.

I don’t know what good unlimited range is when we have a defensive capability that can shoot anything out of the sky, and I believe much of that capability is space-based, but I’m sure Putin’s cocksure machismo plays well in Moscow.

Watch for the tired pics of a shirtless Putin on horseback flooding the interwebs between now and March 18.
