Russia increases troops' alert in S Ossetia after Georgia's provocations

Russia has deployed its troops and border guards in Georgia's breakaway region of South Ossetia on increased alert following provocations from Georgia, Russian news agency RIA Novosti reported on Tuesday.

"The situation is really worrisome, provocations from the Georgian side on the eve of the anniversary of the August events last year are continuing," Andrei Nesterenko, spokesman for Russian Foreign Ministry, said in a statement posted on the ministry's website.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the Georgia/Russia conflict goes "hot", coupled with more destabilization in Pakistan (which would impede Russia getting supplies to Iran by ground), look for a potential US/Israeli attack against Iran to begin shortly after those two things happen.
