I have noticed an unusually high number of pro-Russian comments on blog posts like this one.  There are also reports of possible Denial of Service attacks on Georgian internet sites.

Makes make me wonder if this is part of an orchestrated information-operations campaign by the Russians.  It wouldn’t be the first time.
