If we are still around in 2024.... all it will take is a pearl harbour style nuclear attack on the US by Russia and we are all doomed.

As much as US might isn't what it used to be that would be absolutely suicidal by Russia - the US is infinitely more powerful in every measurable way than Russia. Besides North America is largely protected by a fairly sophisticated network of anti missile systems. 

What Russia is doing in Ukraine is absorbing a huge amount of their militaristic capacity - they're throwing in a lot to overwhelm a relatively small country.

And let's be honest, the Ukraine mid- to long-term has no other chance than getting cuddly with Moscow again one way or the other.

Well, I guess it's short-term. And it's the other way. As nobody will dare to come to the Ukraine's help, all we can hope for is that casualties will be as low as possible. :(

It's going to be interesting to see Russia enter Stade de France in 2024.

Nah, the flag will still be banned when they float at the Seine, hopefully. If after 3 Olympic truce violations (2008, 2014, 2022), dopping scandal of which they had NOT seem to have repented (2014 to Valieva earlier this month), and potentially starting WW3 on top of that(hopefully not, but who knows)? If Russia is still allowed to rise their flag it would be a potential uproar; imagine a participation at all... But that depends on the IOC being serious about that. And you know, IOC.

Well, lets think about this, I mean, obviously everyone is tired of spins and sliding rails and halfpipes.  everyone can do that.  

Lets alter slopestyle a bit.  The obstacles will be butterfly mines, chechen snipers, tank features.  Thats what Im talkin about.

Oh jesus, biathlon could be very interesting.  Instead of rifles, javalins.  Instead of targets, T72s
