The War On Terrorism And The Countdown To The 2010 Olympics

Posted on Monday, January 25 at 08:27 by NAUWATCH

The Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics will be the largest security operation in Canadian history. It will include more than 15,000 Canadian Forces, private security personnel, along with the RCMP and other police agencies. The U.S. will also provide security and support for the Games. With the Olympics fast approaching, the fear of terrorism is back in the public’s psyche. Although there has been no specific threats to the Games, more than anything, it is the danger of terrorism which is used to justify the huge security operation. This is further advancing the militarization of North America and U.S.-Canada military and security integration. The Olympics will take bi-national security cooperation to a whole new level.

    This whole Olympic baloney is becoming a monumental bore, while the government is closing schools and raising tuition fees all over to pay for this showbiz extravaganza for a few.

    There's talk of closing our local school, 26 kids at this time, which would force little children to sit in schoolbuses for up to 5 hours a day, because "there's no money".

    But the show must go on !!!!!!!!!!

    Sounds like a place not to be. I mean if they are expecting the worst , then why would anyone in their right mind ever want to put themself in danger?

    Good videos NAUWATCH, thanks. I especially liked how the US agent referred to being prepared for a possible "terrorist " rather than a terrorist attack!

    Here is another point of view.
