Missiles lined up against a rainy Moscow sky in the winter of 2008 at the Russian Military Museum. It had an eerie, cold war feel to it...

The "backyard" is like a used weapons lot. Tanks, aircraft, missiles, rockets and boats all lined up on display. All that's missing are the "sale" and "Creampuff" signs...

The "end" of the cold war, economic downturn and move to a more democratic government in Russia led to the retirement of many of these weapons. However, with the increased tensions between Moscow and Washington I fear that the warmer feelings between our countries may be ending.
