Something... bad.

The Republic of Georgia and The Russian Federation have been at each other again politically, mostly over the upcoming NATO exercises in Georgia next month, but now...

*This item* from the AP just hit the wires: The Russians have been moving forces up to the line-of-control.
Peter Semneby, the EU special representative for the South Caucasus, said the Russian military presence was clearly "significantly larger" that it had been.

"The timing is peculiar," Semneby said. "It creates an additional source of nervousness and uncertainty."
This could be a very bad thing.


Galrahn at Information Dissemination is already all over this story and has been following things since observers noticed a large deployment of the Black Sea Fleet for no apparent reason last week.
