Truly I Am a Glass Half Full Kind of Man

Maybe the Russians will stop whining so much about the NATO threat:

Russia has claimed it has carried out successful tests of a hypersonic missile, a year ahead of schedule. ...

Or maybe Russia's test wasn't nearly as successful as they'd like us to believe.
