No, seriously… they just want to play with our toys so they can get a better idea how our guys function.  This is the most overt spying I’ve ever seen.

Russia has invited the U.S. to participate in a tank biathlon so that both nations may learn to play nice — with heavy artillery.

The invitation was apparently extended while Secretary of State John Kerry and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel Sergei Lavrov and Sergei Shoigu in Washington on Friday. The “two-on-two” talks were intended to relieve some of the tension between the two countries, so the suggestion of a little friendly competition — under fire — wasn’t out of place.
