Should Olympic Games be cancelled because they're too expensive following extensive security measures? What say you?

Islamist militants are making threats about what they are planning during the upcoming 22nd Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Should the U.S.A. pull out of the Olympic Games? What about future Olympics?

It’s a sad fact that terrorism is part of our modern world, but we cannot stop living our lives because we fear what might happen. Also, these international athletes have worked, trained and sacrificed for four years to compete in these Olympics. How fair is it to drop out now, just weeks before the Games, because of a threat?

Would that mean the terrorists win? YES Absolutely.And we could expect threats at every major event from now on and into the unforeseeable future.

City Island Images believes the answer must continue to be “NO.”
We have to go on with our lives, and hope the athletes will be able to safely compete with the heavy Russian security and help from USA.
