    Let's see.........

    1) threats from terrorists
    2) threat of imprisonment for being gay
    3) tyrannical leader of the country

    I am so not bat-sh*t crazy so h*ll-to-the-NO I ain't going!

    I, too, have a really bad feeling about this Olympics. There's just too much craziness going on out there for me to feel safe about this one. I hope and pray that nothing will happen to those going but I still have a bad feeling in the pit of my stomache.

    All 3 above just scare the hell out of me for them. They say there are already suicide bombers in the country and they have a picture of one, a female that they are looking for.
    The second one scares me for all the gay athletes and I pray that they are safe and will not be targeted in any way. My mind goes to Matthew Shepard and I just want them all to lie and say they are straight!
    Putin is a loose cannon. We'll see how he handles all this.

    I pray all our Russian Tet- Mates will be safe during the games. The world is such an unstable place right now.

    I am waiting for the so-called "moderate Muslims" to speak out against this bull-puppy of the purest ray serene or for the so-called enlightened media to highlight this fact. I think it's unfortunate that the lie that a video was the reason for the Benghazi attack was believed because everyone knows too many of them are living in the stone age but too many are too freakin worried if the Ten Commandments are still being displayed on the courthouse wall. Round em up and gas em.

    OK, now I'm worried - I haven't paid much attention to the news lately, I've been so busy, but this is concerning for sure. What if you had a child in the Olympics? Fulfillment of a lifelong dream? I'd be like: You are not going to the Olympics and that's final!

    I feel sorry for all the athletes who have trained so hard to be there. Nothing like doing a 90 meter ski jump with one eye looking for snipers.

    Such a world.

    If you gave me a free package deal to go, I would tear it up. Wouldn't even give it to my worst enemy. No way, no how, would I go.

    I would go - just so I could go visit @Lina in Russia (if she would have me!) Just kidding Lina! But yes, I would like to travel there some day, just not to see the Olympics actually. I could have gone when they were in Canada but I chose to just watch them on TV.

    Gasing them would be a waste of fossil fuel. Maybe feed them to the hogs. Now I am being mean lol.

    I'm really feeling for all of the citizens that just want to get on with their lives and that might be caught up in something simply by being in the wrong place at the wrong time... and for the athletes and their support people, family members etc.... it's sad and disgusting too.

    @Gallina and @Lina and all of our other members living in Russia and those people thinking of attending, please be vigilant and stay safe... remember to check in with us whenever you can during the games. xox

    I would be very glad to meet you and many other people from SKMB! No kidding!

    It is so kind of you! Me, I'm not going to the games, I am not so fond of sports, and still it's a rather long way to get to Sochi. But I am also scared of what can happen there, considering the terror attacks that already happened in one of the towns. I also can remember other acts that took place about 6 or 7 years ago... when they put a bomb at the theater during the premier of a grand performance... or when they kept hostages in a school... and other acts. That's just terrible. But we'll hope that this time it will be alright, let's pray for those who will be there in the Olympics.

    It is very scary... but you're right, we need to think positively and do everything we can (prayer/good vibes/positive thought) to help your country get through.

    To my knowledge, Gallina and family will not be attending the games. She does have many family members in Volgograd which will be a major transport hub for tourists. May she and Lina be safe. Many protective vibes for all.
