I forgot to mention the momentous treaty signed between Barack Obama and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to reduce nuclear weapons.

The treaty sets a limit of 1,550 strategic nuclear warheads for each side, down from 2,200 under a 2002 deal. The pact also re-establishes anti-cheating procedures that were not written into the 2002 accord, thus providing the most comprehensive and substantial arms control agreement since the 1991 treaty.

I for one will sleep at night knowing the amount of times that each sides can blow up the world has been reduced by 30%.

I am also slightly amused by the idea of cheating. Do you think they paint smiley faces on the bombs and pass them off as super tall Barbies?
