Sochi Olympic Security

Everyone is worried about security and the upcomming winter olympics in Sochi, Russia.  I share the concern.  If there is a terrorist attack during the games; Russia will blame Saudi Arabia, Great Britian and the US.  Right or wrong, Russia believes Saudi Arabia sponsors the Chechen Rebels.  And right or wrong, Russia sees Saudi Arabia as a proxy for the US.

Regardless of who is responsible in reality.  If there is a terrorist attack during the Sochi games, Russia will likely blame the US for it.  But after repeated insults in Georgia and with the Chechen Rebels, an attack now may be the the "staw that breaks the camel's back".
