Clearly there is an international effort to meet the terrorist threat to the Sochi Olympics. ABC online reports http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-12-31/links-between-deadly-russia-bomb-attacks-as-us-offers-help/5179284 :

"The US offer for closer cooperation with Russia comes after tensions were raised between US and Russian security agencies following the involvement of two Chechen brothers in the Boston Marathon bombing and Russia's granting temporary asylum to former US National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.

Despite these points of contention a US official said security cooperation between the US and Russia regarding the Games had improved in the run-up to the Olympics.

In November, Matthew Olsen, director of the government's [mainly CIA run] US National Counter-terrorism Centre, said his agency was "coordinating and integrating the intelligence community's support ... to the Winter Olympics in Sochi".

According to some estimates over the last 1400 years the world has only had 12 years without an Islamic Jihad occurring somewhere, Russia in particular has suffered horribly because of Islam, millions of her people have been killed and enslaved in the last thousand years.

Also during Soviet times millions of Muslim people of the North Caucasus and other areas invaded by Russians were deported to isolated settlements and camps in Siberia. Up to 43% died of diseases and malnutrition.

Perhaps people are beginning to understand that there is an ongoing
war since around 500AD and that it is about time to refuse entry to
enemy aliens.
Nothing new about that of course, it has always been done by all countries.
Under those rules human rights do not apply, only the rules of war apply.
Rather that sorting people by nationality, this time it will be better
to sort them by religion and nationality.

The camps that were previously used to intern enemy aliens can remain
in Manus and Nauru, but those countries may not want to continue to
hold enemy aliens, so under Red Cross, as normal in wartime, they
could be repatriated to their home countries.
Combat age males are sometimes repatriated provided they do take part
in hostile operations.
If they are caught again they would be imprisoned for the duration.
If not in uniform or having a serial number
they could be shot as a spy.

Enemy aliens already in the country are arrested and confined in
secure locations for the duration if not repatriated.

It is all a well worn procedure and well covered by international law.
It seems to me that we are fast approaching the declaration of war.
