I've Been Thinking:
The Russians are fuming.
A lot of their anger is directed at Israel.
The Russians held a press conference yesterday where they assert that 8 varieties of important military equipment were given to Georgia by Israel.
Now Russia intends to exact revenge.
Syrian President Bashar Assad will be in Moscow on Thursday.
Assad will get the Russian point of view.
The Russians will tell Assad what they think about Israel, about the role of Israel in the Region and about the Russia perception of Israel's strengths and weaknesses.
The Syrian leader will pay close attention to the Russian assessment.
My fear is that the Russians might not properly estimate Israel.
Russia may misrepresent Israel's strengths and weaknesses - not out of deliberate disinformation but because they are so outraged and angry right now that they will have blind spots when assessing Israel's capabilities.
That could lead to some very wrong and very dangerous conclusions.
