The question is why anyone would take the time to chip away at a big rock to make a near-perfect sphere.

You can’t eat one, they don’t seem to be giant space alien eggs or even more common dino-eggs. Chipping one out is unlikely to get you laid (motivation for most things guys do). So why do it?

It might be good to have a theater commander that all subordinate commands fear.
Even in art, there is the tradition that Russian failure has to do with an incapacity to be sufficiently brutal. In the referenced film, Red Dawn, it returns. And apparently, life imitates art.
Russian Colonel General Aleksandr Dvornikov better stay off insecure comms or he will end up like the other generals who have been slain in this war.
