Discuss the War on Terrorism, Homeland Security, Iraq, Afghanistan, North Korea and other global terrorist concerns.
It's a few days before the opening of the Olympics but still I see a lot of nonsense about the games like eliminating stray dogs or too much snow or security issues or whatever. And it seems to me people who make these 'news' have absolutely no understanding of what's really going on in Sochi. I came here a week ago and since that time I have a chance to observe the great job Russians did to host the games. The place is clean and completely secured. They created a unique system of checkpoints which eliminate any possibility for people not supposed to be here to enter. Some say that's really too much, but when it comes to security it has to be this way. Maybe some people think that Russians are bonkers but the things I see in Sochi ensured me that Russians understand the stakes and risks here and failing is not an option for them and that's why everywhere you can see their hard work.

glad to hear you have first hand knowledge marked.
I read that Sochi were cleaning up the place of unwanted pets,strays or wandering pets by having them killed.I can only use the word killed because i wasnt aware of how they were eliminating them.It seems very extreme to do such a thing,have they ever believed there were better ways to show how great a place they really are..i wonder
