"Security has become a paramount concern at all major international sporting events, especially in the wake of the bombing at the Boston Marathon in April, but never before has an Olympic host country experienced terrorist violence on this scale soon before the Games. And would-be attackers may have more targets in mind than the Russian state."

Gotta keep the fear factor up here in the States. :thumb: :rolleyes:

Exactly MtnCat - can happen anywhere at anytime. Terrorist count on the lax feeling that it can't to be successful in their attempts. Another good reason to be prepped all the time. Not that one should allow them to be successful by being fearful all the time, just be ready just in case.

I hadn't even thought about the olympics when I read about that. Russia has been dealing with separatists and terrorists from their Stanistan neighbors for a long time though.

"US eyeing Olympic security after Russia attacks"

AP - Honolulu: http://bigstory.ap.org/article/us-eyeing-olympic-security-after-russia-attacks

MtnCat imagines the author: <must squeeze in info about gay Americans in Russia somewhere...ah...last paragraph>:

"In a clear message to Russia, the U.S. delegation to the Olympics includes several openly gay athletes, including tennis player Billie Jean King and figure skater Brian Boitano. And for the first time since 2000, the American delegation to the Olympics will not include a president, vice president or first lady."

Well, the SAUDIS already threatened the RUSSIANS (OLYMPICS)...for supporting Bashir Al
Assad's regime...via the CHECHNYANS, which the SAUDIS claim to control.

If RUSSIAS Intel definitively traces the origins of the on-going bombings to the SAUDIS, I doubt that Ole VLAD will wait for UN SANCTIONS to be debated against them...and it would be wise for us to stay out of this one...but...there is no wisdom in DC.

If you mean "boycott the Winter Olympics in Russia," we didn't boycott the 1936 Summer Olympics in Germany, either. "The Olympic Truce" is quickly becoming a memory. :(
