I don't know why anyone would want to go near that entire region unless ordered to by the military.

I say that every time I hear about some American getting killed ,kidnapped, etc etc in some of those countries.

what in the hell are doing over there if you weren't forced to go there by the military.

if you want to help people, there are millions right here in this country who need it, and if you want to learn about another culture read an effin book, or watch a documentary.

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) -- Shaun White pulled out of the Olympic slopestyle contest Wednesday after being dinged up on a course that riders are criticizing as unduly harsh.
White issued a statement to the ''Today'' show, saying that after much deliberation, he has decided to forgo the new snowboarding event and concentrate on halfpipe, where he will try for his third straight gold medal next week.
White, who was among the favorites in the new Olympic event, jammed his left wrist during practice Tuesday and when he came off the slopestyle course. He called it ''a little intimidating.''
Slopestyle is a speed-packed trip down the mountain, filled with rails, bumps and, most notably, steeply angled jumps that allow riders to flip two, sometimes three times, before landing.
The 27-year-old snowboarding star has been dealing with a number of nagging injuries during a winter in which he's one of the few riders trying to compete in both events. The wrist added to a list that includes his shoulder and ankle, both injured during qualifying events for the U.S. team.
In the statement, he said, ''the potential risk of injury is a bit too much for me to gamble my other Olympic goals on.''
But he will compete in the halfpipe, which is essentially a hollowed-out ice shell with 22-foot sidewalls. There is danger there, but unlike slopestyle, it's based mostly on the types of tricks the riders try and not the setup of the pipe.

Sportswriters from around the world have begun cataloguing a litany of accommodation-related woes in Sochi, Russia as organizers scramble to finish the construction of some hotels three days before the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics, and two days before some competitions get underway.

Journalists have been trickling into the Black Sea resort town all week ahead of the most expensive Winter Olympics in history. Russia has spent $51 billion making all ready for the 17 days of competition, but organizers admitted earlier last week that three of the nine media hotels were not completed.

The Guardian's Moscow bureau chief Shaun Walker reported that when he tried to check into his room at midday Tuesday, he was told by a receptionist, "Your room is still under construction. They are literally finishing, the keys are literally coming now." Three hours later, Walker reported the same receptionist offered him a different room "with no heating, a single bed, and permeated with the odour of industrial glue."

Even those who have managed to get rooms have found the amenities less than ideal, as Chicago Tribune reporter Stacy St. Clair tweeted.

Canadian sports columnist Bruce Arthur wrote, "Almost every room is missing something: lightbulbs, TVs, lamps, chairs, curtains, wifi, heat, hot water. Shower curtains are a valuable piece of the future black market here. (One American photographer was simply told, 'You will not get a shower curtain.')"

At a news conference Monday, International Olympic Committee President Thomas Bach insisted that Sochi was ready to stage the Winter Olympics despite concerns over terrorism carried out by Islamic militants from the restive North Caucuses region neighboring the city, unfinished construction, and human rights caused by Russia's now-infamous law against "homosexual propaganda."

However, as Arthur noted "[W]hat we have is a sea of little failures that give rise to the spectre of bigger ones. The Boston Globe drove a local car within a couple hundred feet of the Main Press Centre Tuesday, which is a proximity unthinkable in previous Olympics."

For now, however, most will settle for the creature comforts. As Yahoo Sports hockey writer Nick Cotsonika tweeted:

I visited the Soviet Union in 1991. Then, I could take a shower in my hotel. In Sochi now? Nyet.

Sochi residents are none to happy about the games, some of them are now homeless because their homes were demolished to make way for Olympic venues

also heard the stray dogs were being rounded up and killed

its a fucking joke

the Olympics are all about greed wrapped up in a flag
