Russia Eliminates WMDs

Not only has the US finally found some actual WMDs, but they didn't even need an invasion to eliminate them. Russia and America jointly opened a plant in Siberia yesterday tasked with destroying the former Soviet Union's stockpile of deadly chemical weapons that have worried U.S. leaders since 1994. The more than two million shells and warheads are loaded with VX, sarin and soman, and just one of the shells could kill tens of thousands of people if detonated in a high-density area. High costs and bureaucratic delays pushed back the opening of this facility, first discussed in the early ‘90s. The U.S. donated $1 billion to the effort, and other Western countries chipped in about $200 million.
