The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us,” he allegedly said.allegedlyPrince Bandar, head of Saudi intelligence, allegedly confronted the Kremlin with a mix of inducements and threats in a bid to break the deadlock over Syria.
And on your source: Putin Orders Massive Strike Against Saudi Arabia If West Attacks Syria | EUTimes.net
Ok A lebanese newspaper, cool.Lebanese newspaper As-Safir confirmed this amazing threat against Russia saying that Prince Bandar pledged to safeguard Russia’s naval base in Syria if the Assad regime is toppled, but he also hinted at Chechen terrorist attacks on Russia’s Winter Olympics in Sochi if there is no accord by stating: “I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us.”
Nameless "Kremlin sources," very reliable.According to Kremlin sources familiar with this extraordinary “war order,” Putin became “enraged” after his early August meeting with Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan who warned that if Russia did not accept the defeat of Syria, Saudi Arabia would unleash Chechen terrorists under their control to cause mass death and chaos during the Winter Olympics scheduled to be held 7-23 February 2014 in Sochi, Russia.

Sorry Vance, your information is garbage. I'll wait until its verified and not alleged and I'll stay away from the blogs thanks.
"The EU papers reported that Putin has declared Russia will attack Saudi Arabia if the US attacks Syria."
Now...pray tell which part of that indicates an exhaustive investigative process with proof? I stated that an EU paper had reported it. And...sunuvagun...they DID. Whether they WILL? Who knows. Putin thinks Obama is a punk. He is also a bit of a wingnut. WOuld I put it past him? But then...I have as much 'proof' that Russia is going to attack Saudi Arabia as you do over which moderate rebel groups you are clamoring to support or how those groups are going to fare better than Al Aqaida and the other extremist groups there. Actually...since I have the actual source i cited Id say that puts me one up and you with nothing but an empty cup.
And I found another that said he was offered a Range of Incentives.
Saudi Arabia Tries to Bribe Russia to Abandon Syria | World News Curator
Except this time you just cant use excuses about Newsources. As now Rueters and HUFF PO, Plus USA are all on top of it.
Russia has now made clear that it will not respond militarily to a U.S./Western military operation against Syria. From Bloomberg.com:
Any military intervention without UN Security Council approval would be “a gross violation of international law,” Lavrov told reporters in Moscow today. He ruled out a Russian military response.
Syria Is Headed for Western Strike, Russia Says - Bloomberg
As had been noted earlier, speculation in some publications of Russian military retaliation against Saudi Arabia amounted to reckless journalism. Russia's interests would preclude such a scenario unless Russia were irrational, and it isn't.
Well Russia had said they would attack Qatar and Saudi Arabia at the end of June. So its not like it would have been the First time.
