Well, I hope Al Q continues to be stupid, and China takes care of Al Q the Chinese way.
Canada is not spending $900,000,000 dollars on security for the Vancouver winter Olympics because Canda is woried about the CIA or Republicans in America. Canada is spending nearly a billion dollars on security because we are worried about terrorism. From terrorists like Al Quaeda.
Wake up people. Terrorism isn’t going away without a fight and I hope China gets in on the fighting, because western countries are losing. [/quote]
Are you claiming that Canada is spending nearly 1 billion dollars because they are worried about Republican sponsored terrorism? Why would the Republican party or the CIA want to cause death and destruction at the winter Olympics?
Got any links to back up your claim?[/quote]
No, I’m not claiming that Republican-sponsored terrorism is a threat to Canada. However, many would make that claim. I personally know more foreigners here in Taiwan, from many countries, who believe that the CIA is the biggest threat the world currently faces. I am arguing that Canada has no need to protect itself from the CIA, thus the money must be meant to protect Canada from terorist attacks during the Olympics.
If you were debating the amount, here:
[quote]http://www.tsn.ca/olympics/story/?id=267833VICTORIA - The security budget for the 2010 Winter Olympics in British Columbia has been set at $900 million.
Securing the Olympics is a complex affair.
The Games are taking place in Vancouver and Whistler, B.C. which are separated by 126 kilometres of highway with ocean on one side and cliffs on the other.
In addition, there are thousands of kilometres of coastline, airspace and the U.S.-Canada border that must be secured.
Games security will involve more than 8,000 people from agencies including RCMP, military and local police.
Among other items, the budget includes $212 million for the Department of National Defence, $11 million for the Canadian Security Intelligence Service and a $137 million contingency fund.
Van Loan said even though there was a now a public budget, the final tally for Games security remains unknown.
Canadian officials have identified both local and international threats to the Games.
