Russia Really Is Claiming the North Pole

I blogged about this a week or so ago, at first thinking this was some hilarity from the Onion, but it's so. Say it ain't! But here it is, fresh off the news wires:
An expedition aimed at strengthening Russia's claim to much of oil and gas wealth beneath the Arctic Ocean reached the North Pole on Wednesday, and preparations immediately began for two mini-submarines to drop a capsule containing a Russian flag to the sea floor.

Brace yourself. I'm just waiting for King George to say Russia's in cahoots with al-Qaida.
