With all the threats of terrorism. Would you go to the Sochi Winter Olympics on a vacation for the games?

I do not believe I could enjoy myself there at this time.

I'm not afraid of terrorism, no.

But I have little appreciation of winter sports. The upcoming threads will probably not include me, unless we're talkng about ice-skating crotch shots.

But hey, it's a Canadian thing to get upset about it. We Americans aren't ashamed about where we're looking.

Except for me. I just don't bother to watch. I can read the newspaper.

I have no interest in supporting Putin's economy. The pocketbook is the only place where it's possible to make a statement that he might notice.

Well if I were going to go it would be with my family and I just would not feel comfortable putting them and myself in what I feel is harms way. Probably just being to cautious.

Not being paranoid, but after Nam and being surrounded by those who were trying to kill me is enough. Not saying I would be surrounded at the Olympics by those trying to kill me. But it would be something for those to kill a bunch of innocent people who are gathered somewhere in order to enjoy themselves. It would rival "nine eleven" if they accomplish such an act. They know the Olympics will garner world wide attention. What better place for such an act? Nothing like slaughtering innocent people including women and children to show how dedicated they are at a would wide event such as the Olympics where the whole world gathers. Showing how they can strike anywhere at any time.

I guess in some way they have already succeeded as they put such thoughts into peoples mind such as myself. I hope it goes off without a single incident except stunning performances for the participants and those watching.

For those of you who go...ENJOY.

My favorite event in winter sports is the biathlon. Dudes and dudesses ski around until they can't hardly breathe, then they shoot. No crotch shots, but still cool. Try to shoot when you can hardly breathe!

Oh, I forgot: this thread has a subject. Terrorism or something. As in: some biathlon dude or dudess goes nuts and starts shooting into the crowd!

It could happen!

Here's Germany's star biathlete:

Poor Chancellor Merkel won't be able to throw those high kicks anymore since she broke her pelvis (which I heard happened while secretly training for the biathalon). She's quite a gal!

I have no desire to go to Sochi, period. Too far, too expensive, sounds / looks unappealing. The threats of terrorism don't even enter into it.

I have an aversion to cold (even in America) and anti-gay laws.
I also have a problem with murdering reporters.
I have a problem with Putin but not the Russian People.

If I had the Money I'd go to FISM.

I hope that each time a Russian wins a gold medal, Nikolai Volkoff sings their national anthem...

That would be *SO* great.

Mary, I have the same feelings. I also feel similarly about Iran- some amazing people with a lousy government.

I love the Winter Olympics, but would have no interest in seeing them in Russia. Terrorism has nothing to to with it.

A trip to Russia is on my bucket list and the Winter Olympics are a nice additional touch, but I have bad feelings about this event and will not go.

Now that is just silly. Yes it would be great!

Since the West has been supporting our avowed enemies Russia since 1917 then I don't see why we should stop now just short of the hundred year mark and since when did stop supporting terrorists?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Not all of them. Just the ones that threaten our business interests.
