It's Christmas Eve! Santa SS-18 Satan ICBM Takes Flight -- [Cuffy Meigs]

Many of you know about the cute little PR activity that the US military provides the children of the world every Christmas --- the NORAD Santa Tracker:

Tracking Santa starts with the NORAD radar system called the North Warning System. This powerful radar system consists of 47 installations strung across the northern border of North America. On Christmas Eve, NORAD monitors the radar systems continuously for indications that Santa Claus has left the North Pole.

Well, I hope someone at NORAD is watching the real radars today:

Russia says it successfully tested a long-range SS-18 missile on Thursday.

The missile - called an RS-20 Voyevoda in Russia - was fired from Orenburg in central Russia and hit targets in Kamchatka, in the far east, the Ria Novosti news agency reported.

With the NATO designation "Satan," the SS-18 is the heaviest ICBM the Russian Strategic Rocket Forces have ever fielded, able to throw 10 nuclear warheads clear across the planet.

Below the fold is video of Satan showering American children with Multiple Independently Targetable Re-Entry Vehicles Presents. Merry Christmas!
