    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

US Issues Terrorism Warning For Winter Olympics

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Following the suicide bombings and the discovery of numerous explosive devices near Sochi - the site of the Winter Olympics - the US state department warned Americans of the potential for terrorism. As Reuters reports, in a 'travel warning' that the Olympics presented "an attractive target for terrorists," the department urged Americans to be vigilant about personal security at the Games, and flagged the possibility of petty crime, inadequate medical care and hotel shortages. Somewhat oddly, the state department also used the warning to highlight the fact that a Russian law, much criticized by rights groups,
that would make it a crime to publicly promote the equality of gay,
lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

 

Via Reuters,

...

 

In a "travel warning," the department urged Americans to be vigilant about personal security at the February 7 to March 14 Olympic Games, and flagged the possibility of petty crime, inadequate medical care and hotel shortages.

 

...

 

"Large-scale public events such as the Olympics present an attractive target for terrorists," the State Department wrote in the travel warning, saying that Russian authorities have said they are taking appropriate security measures.

 

However, the department noted what it described as "acts of terrorism" in Russia during the final three months of last year, including three suicide bombings that targeted public transportation in city of Volgograd, 600 miles from Sochi.

 

"There is no indication of a specific threat to U.S. institutions or citizens, but U.S. citizens should be aware of their personal surroundings and follow good security practices," it said.

 

The warning also highlighted the danger of petty crime and the possibility that political demonstrations - which the Olympic charter bars at the site of the Games, but which Russian authorities say may take place seven miles from Sochi in the village of Khost - could unexpectedly turn violent.

In addition to the threat of terrorism, the US state department saw fit to remind travelers of Russia's anti-gay actions...

It also highlighted a Russian law, much criticized by rights groups, that would make it a crime to publicly promote the equality of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

 

It also noted that Russia's State Duma lower house of parliament passed a law in June banning the "propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations" to minors which, in the U.S. government's view, applies to Russian citizens and foreigners.

 

"Russian citizens found guilty of violating the law could face a fine of up to 100,000 rubles ($3,100). Foreign citizens face similar fines, up to 14 days in jail, and deportation," it said.

We are sure Putin will be cock-a-hoop at this release after spending more than China did on the Summer Olympics to highlight his nation's appeal...

I get the impression that the networks are HOPING for some sort of terrorist or hostage situation just to jack up their ratings.  A (false flag?) incident would suit so many people's interests its seems guaranteed at this point.

I plan to treat the Olympics coverage as a drinking game.   Every time they mention "gay" or "gay rights" or some similar term take a swig of vodka.   Guaranteed death by alcohol poisoning in the first hour of coverage.

So John Kerry, the "Head" of the State Department. is also a fairy??? Does not surprise me in the least.

 

He pitches while Obutthole spreads wide open.

 

Obozo is just a wide receiver. Reggie Love and John Kerry probably do him at the same time.

 

The FSA means the Free Shit Army? It also means the Faggot States of Amurika.

Right on Putin- someone has to stand up for decency and moral behavior. I hope he catches all the American-Saudi-Israeli sponsored Chechen terrorists, as well as LGBT cultural terrorists. Whatever the terrorism, it's all about destruction, with no plan for anything better. Trace it back, and it's easy to see who's behind it all. Nuff said, free Francis_Sawyer!

" LGBT cultural terrorists. " I always find that fear complicates the situation, all you need to say is 'no thanks bud, im straight'. You don't need to "trace it al back", that only complicates matters for you. And a guy like you needs confusion like he needs a hole in the head. Know what im sayin?

We support the world's leading terrorist state, Israel.  Makes sense we would support the Wahhabi franchises as well.  After all, Israel's Mossad blew up the WTC, so we need to sacrifice our blood and treasure to fight her enemies...wait, WHAT THE FUCK?

And I wouldn't put it past Putin to have a false flag op ready to go, staged to make it look like a Chechen plot. Thanks to Bandar Bush's big mouth and the recent 'Black Widow' suicide bombings in Volgograd, nobody will even bother asking for proof first before the final nail in the Saudi coffin is hammered in.

He who laughs last. laughs best. Let the Chechen's blow up some shit then leak the intelligence showing conclusively the House of Saud is behind it. Sit back and watch the OPEC fall apart while laughing all the way to the petro bank.

Who is going to the olympics?

It's cold, lot's of filthy people everywhere, everything is purposefully marked up 5,000%, and you you're going to a big red bullseye to basically get blown the fuck up.

If you go to the olympics you should get blown up and maybe we wouldn't have so many fucking morons.
