We almost went to war for this?

One way to wake up an old Cold Warrior is to mention one location - the Kola Peninsula.

In MoscowTopNews is yet another photo spread of what was once one of the most important bits of real estate in the world - one that people were willing to die for to get pictures out of.

Sad in a way - but so is much of that former empire.

Take some time (watch for the "more" tag if you find an area of interest) - abandoned bones of the empire here, here, here, and here.

If you like scary stories - read this.
