How I Won the [Cold] War

In a tribute to East German spymaster Markus Wolf, Russians celebrated their hard-fought victory in the Cold War on Friday.

That's correct, Russia actually won the Cold War -- or so an observer might assume had they attended Wolf's official tribute in Moscow.

As observers note, "Playing up his Russian background and recalling past espionage triumphs over the United States and its allies...Moscow's lavish praise for Wolf reflects a newly-awakened admiration in Russia for Cold War intelligence successes that has been promoted by President Vladimir Putin."

In other news, Eternam Remont is anxiously waiting for an update on the real winner of the Vietnam conflict.

(Kudos ERN!)
