Russia Goes Retro, Wants Cold War Back

Putin says he’s bored, misses old KGB days

Russia’s air force on Friday resumed permanent bomber patrols over the country for the first time in 15 years, President Vladimir Putin said. Putin cited the need for more media attention and said he missed the adrenalin rush he used to get when he was a spy chief running the KGB.  “The West used to get twitchy when we’d do some weird shit,” said the Russian leader.  “We’d see a spike in their aerial reconnaissance and there’d be an increase in the amount of secret radio traffic.  The U.S. President would go into a closed session with his advisors and stay up late and eat in.  Kind of makes me giddy just thinking about it.”

Foreign policy experts say that in recent weeks Putin’s been driving his wife crazy by wandering around the house kicking the cat and swearing.  Reportedly she told him to quit grousing about the old days and either do something or “suck it up”.  Medical experts say that after Putin turned 50 years-of-age he began to fear he was becoming like Boris Yeltson, sitting around reading comics and drinking.  Only on rare occasions did he cut off the Ukraine’s oil supply just to get a rise out of them.

“He’s pushing 55 and the word around Moscow is that he can’t get it up,” said former U.S. Secretary of State and Foreign Policy Expert Henry Kissinger.  “When a top government official faces that day he becomes even less stable.  I was President Nixon’s advisor when he turned 60.  The Watergate break-in was the least of the crap he was trying to pull that year.  And according to the FBI he and Pat were having relations.  Then there’s Bill Clinton.  He turned 50 while in the Oval Office with what’s-her-name and the blue dress.  Forget about it.  Russia is in for some serious shit.”

Secret tapes recently discovered confirmed that Putin is planning to ramp up efforts to bring back the glory of the Soviet Empire.  The tapes were made by Putin’s psychologist and discovered in a cheese box next to a washing machine in the Kremlin basement.  Apparently the psychologist had forgotten them there when washing out some underwear after work.  The U.S. State Department verified the tapes authenticity and issued a statement that said they weren’t surprised by the revelation because cheese boxes are frequently used for storing things.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said that currently Russia engages in 17 different categories of human rights abuses and has been outpacing the U.S. in other nasty ways.  She said that Putin has indicated an appreciation for the increasing number of Russian governors using Soviet style tactics but feels that progress isn’t being made fast enough.

“He’s still an old KGB guy and as we all know they get their juices flowing when they get the world nervous and generate a lot of media coverage,” shouted Rice to the Press Corps at a recent U2 concert.  “I heard that after the Cold War ended KGB agents stopped having kids ’cause nothing worked anymore.”

In a document leaked by the CIA Putin is quoted whining about the loss of press coverage while attending a conference held in the Middle East.  “I’m not climbing into a bottle like Boris,” said Putin at a meeting for war mongers, past and present.  “You Iranians and North Koreans are getting all the headlines for global destabilization and we Russians invented it.  Now we’re being forgotten.  No longer do the world’s leaders tremble or shit tacks when they read of Russian espionage or military power.  No longer does my wife Ludmila think the sun rises and sets in my pants.  Well enough is enough.”
