ongbok: grinding_journalist: puckrock2000: Are you seriously equating 80s LA with Rio? Really? Point me towards the cartel-run favelas in LA and I'll hear you out.You mean, like Compton? South Central LA?While I agree that gangs basically ran Compton in the 80s, I really don't think you can compare it with Rio.From wiki: With roughly 23.8 homicides per 100,000 residents, muggings, robberies,  and gang violence Brazil is one of the most criminalized countries of the world.Whereas LA has less violent crime than Detroit./meant to say can't blame ya for godwinningThe bloods nor the crips never used a rocket launcher to shoot down a police helicopter like the gangs in areas of Rio did. The United States military has never gotten into street to street battles with the gangs of Compton like the Brazilian army has with the gangs in Rio.
grinding_journalist: puckrock2000: WTF Indeed: 2014: Caucasus region - Several ongoing regional civil wars and city controlled totally by the Russian mob2016: Rio - City run by gang warlords2018: South Korea - Tubby with Nuclear weapons to the north1988: South Korea - Shorty with nuclear weapons to the northAre you referring to Russia or the Norks? Pretty certain the Norks didn't have nukes in '88. The Russians wouldn't start WW3 over the Olympics.
SlothB77: It is in the Russians best interest for the Olympics to go as smooth as possible. The Russian mobsters won't harm the games. But that would be a coup de grace for any country Russia has pissed off - Chechnya, Dagestan, Georgia, etc, which all happen to be quite close to Sochi.
theurge14: Well that's why they're bringing the Olympics in, silly. The Olympics cures all ills..
