Will winter Olympians be safe in Sochi Russia?
What is Vladimir Putin doing about the Olympics?
Statistics of Americans who believe a terrorist attack will happen at the winter Olympics.
Security at the Winter Olympics.
- "With just more than two weeks to go before the start of the Games, Russia has gone on the offensive, trying to root out militants in the region and continuing a manhunt for suicide bombers who may already be inside the security ring". This is pretty extreme, the Militants are going around Sochi, Russia looking for terrorist bombers. This is pretty crazy especially since there might be terrorist bombers inside the militant squad looking for terrorist. With possible terrorist inside the Russian security who knows if the person next to you is a terrorist or not. You can have a traitor within your own group and wouldn't even know it. (CBS News)
Most Feared Terrorist Group in Russia!
Terrorist Attacks already in Russia, Olympics will just increase those numbers.
Olympic Athletes Are Asking Their Parents to stay Home and Watch.
These are Parents of a tripple Olympic Athlete, Tucker Fredricks. Tucker is looking out for his family because of the safety concerns in Sochi. He also doesn't want any distraction while focusing on the Olympics. "Security concerns have meant many Americans are staying away. Shawn and Dan Fredricks won't be in Sochi to watch their triple-Olympian son Tucker Fredericks compete in speed skating. there are concerns out there for security and it seems like there is something new every day, and Tucker wants to be focused, so he asked us and his wife if we would stay home and watch on TV," explains Dan Fredricks". I think that it's great that he is looking out for his family, but being in the Olympics is a big deal. If the safety concerns people, sit by an exit or an easy way out of the stadium or where ever you are. I think Tucker just doesn't want his family to get hurt, and i agree with him I wouldn't want anyone in my family to get hurt as well.
