The Olympics are a celebratory and joyous experience for all amateur athletes who have worked hard to compete on the world stage. Olympic games are significant to all nations around the world.
It is estimated that some four billion people globally will watch at least part of the Sochi Games before the XXII Olympiad comes to a close.
However, even before the start of the world-staged event, a dark cloud seems to be hovering over Russia. Bombings, shootings, laws against public display of homosexual preferences and even the legitimacy of the doping testing facilities in question, have shrouded the games negatively.
The State Department warned Americans of the potential for terrorism at the Sochi Olympics. Large-scale public events such as the Olympics are an attractive target for terrorists, thievery and scams.
Expert John Greenburg discusses the significance of the Olympics and what the Olympics stand for along with expert on terrorism, Dr. Anne Speckhard, who has examined why Russia is being targeted.

Mirabile dictu! Somehow, the IOC chose Boston over San Francisco, Los Angeles and D.C for the US bid to host the 2024 Summer Games.
It's certianly not a done deal. Entries from many other nations are in the running for that — to be settled in 2017. Apparently that will involve much dining and wining, bribing and cajoling. PR meets politics meets pride.I figure Rome or some other city that's already done this will get it.
Meanwhile, Bostonians aer in two camps. One are the hucksters and boosters, typified by ty the Boston 2024 promoters. On the other side are detractors, including those on No Boston Olympics. Next week's show will have one of the three principals of the latter on.
This time, I'll do my best to present the case for the Olumpics. There's much to overcome on the way to winning the bid. The commonwealth's feasibility study on the bid, which came out in February, details the infrastrtucture, venue, transportation and other issues. The boosters say they have it under coontrol or soon to be.
This week is the pro-side run through. Next week will be the anti one.
