  1. Why fear? Radiation level in Tokyo is one of the LOWEST out of ALL other major capital cities. If you don't want Tokyo to win the bid that's totally understandable but please state facts and not fears and fictitious lies . Radiophobia, the irrational fear promotion of radiation. There are many areas around the world with multiple times higher levels of natural background radiation than in evacuation zone around Fukushima, The people living in these areas show no harmful effects from radiation. Also the Radiation level in Tokyo is a non issue. UN report shortly after 3/11: the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation has drawn on 80 scientists from 18 countries to produce a draft report that concludes: "Radiation exposure following the nuclear accident at Fukushima-Daiichi did not cause any immediate health effects. It is unlikely to be able to attribute any health effects in the future among the general public and the vast majority of workers." Radiation fear debunked pt2.. Tokyo radiation levels significantly lower than other Capitals I understand that people get excited during the run up to saturday's decision and want their favorites to win but promoting the LIE that Tokyo is highly radiated and should not host the games on safety grounds is frankly pathetic!

  3. I know you're a troll - but this is hilarious coming from a Spaniard - Spain is notorious for pickpockets. Barcelona is probably THE worst city in Europe. I was in Istanbul in 2007 - and while I thought it was worse than most of Northern Europe, most of inner Istanbul was no different to the level of begging/pickpocketing you'd find in Italy, France or Central Europe.

  5. Where the Olympics are placed should not matter on whether that nation is "progressive". By excluding cities from hosting because of that fact, we are destroying the idea of the Olympics being a "Global event". While Russia is backwards in some cases they are also a ironically religious society and that's the radical way they swing. In fact they banned US and UK parents from adopting Russian children because of our views on homosexuality and it's acceptance in society. Yet even then excluding Russia (who has only hosted a games once when things were far worse) makes the Olympics way too politically tied and tarnishes our beautiful rings. So I say let 2014 Sochi go on and host a beautiful games and gay athletes get gold. A failed opportunity is a failed life, but someone who takes it with full force can change a nation; a world.
