Russia takes first step in The War of the Worlds

Bored and tired of waiting for Aliens to come the Russians have decided to invade Earth themselves to show the Martians how to do it and get them motivated. Should the extraterrestrials decide to threaten us, try to intimidate us in any way we will reserve the right to charge them with possessing weapons of mass destruction and enslave them in underground prison camps. Both N.A.T.O. and the League of Nations have vowed not to get involved in their political defense claiming that "Extraterrestrial life is defined as life that does not originate from Earth." also they commented that they don't vote, we can't be expected to share what little we have left for our own survival with those dumbasses and why should we give a shit about them anyway?

Those Russians might be onto something here. Who knows what those Aliens have but no matter what it is we need it!

The following is the real story. I snagged it from [here].

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s Russia’s “flying saucer”

Russia has launched a program to build a powerful, multi-purpose airship that will certainly cause many people on the ground to take notice.

The “Locomoskayner” airship takes to the air with nothing more than helium, but will also have special outfitted hot air cells to regulate its buoyancy, RIA Novosti news agency reported.

Propulsion of the craft is provided by several electric motors, and small wings on the periphery of its disc-shaped hull give the vehicle extra lift in flight. The aircrafts unusual shape, which strikingly resembles an unidentified flying object (UFO) also gives it extra stability, and ability to resist wind currents to hover for extended periods above targets on the ground.

Varying models of the Locomoskayners are expected to be used for the transportation of people and cargo, as well as surveillance and monitoring. The largest version in the works will be able to airlift 600 tons.

(I only added this pic because I kinda like it, but it aint part of the story)

The five-year project is based in the city of Ulyanovsk, some 900 km east from Moscow. The project’s developer, LocomoSky, plans to generate $90 million worth of investment.
