You know how you get back with old friends sometimes, but things just aren’t the same?

You try to play the same games, tell the same jokes, but things just aren’t what they used to be?

This feels kind of like that.

A pair of nuclear-powered Russian attack submarines has been patrolling off the eastern seaboard of the United States in recent days, a rare mission that has raised concerns inside the Pentagon and intelligence agencies about a more assertive stance by the Russian military.

According to Defense Department officials, one of the Russian submarines remained in international waters on Tuesday about 200 miles off the coast of the United States. The location of the second remained unclear. One senior official said the second submarine traveled south in recent days toward Cuba, while another senior official with access to reports on the surveillance mission said it had sailed away in a northerly direction.

The Pentagon and intelligence officials spoke anonymously to describe the effort to track the Russian submarines, which has not been publicly announced.

Spoke anonymously, huh?

Ya think?

    At this point, it’s best to think of the Russian military as just a bunch of Cold War re-enactors.

    Although I don’t miss post-watch reconstruction…
