One Reason I Think Russia is Full of **it
Vladimir Putin said that it was a desecration of the ceasefire spirit of the Olympics to have engaged in violence at this time? This claim seems so absurd. At least one other official (South Ossetian leader or spokesperson) brought up this same argument.
Do any of you know a war that was stopped for the Olympics? This is obviously bullshit, pandering bullshit. It doesn't prove anything. Both sides are claiming the other started it, but only one side is saying that the Olympics are sullied.
And that's one reason why I think Russia is more involved than they let on.
