After hearing about the instructions to kill athletes from the Chezian terrorist leader, IMO it's time for the US Olympic Committee to seriously consider pulling out because of the terrorist violence. What do you think?

I'm sure the terrorists would take that as a victory. We can't cancel everything that might draw an attack. Where is the freedom in that? IMHO Ron

Although safety is a high priority if we pull out the terrorist win this round and who knows how brazen their next terrorist act will be.

I would help the Russians ( as much as they want) with security and hope for the best.

I don't think pulling out would be good. Russia has assured us that security will be tight for the games. These kids have worked hard to get to where they are, and I think it would be a shame not to let them show their stuff.

Having seen the security in Vancouver, and knowing how much the Russians want this to go off well, I don't think there is really much to worry about. They have no human rights worries like we do in the west, so I'm sure they are pulling out all the stops to make these games safe.

While the Russians may be able to guarantee the safety of the athletes in a restricted access "village:, they cannot do the same for visitors and spectators living at large in Sochi and the surrounding area.
