Apparently the blasts were heard at an Athens police station and they were warned that the blasts would occur.

I REALLY don't want anything to stop the Olympics or to stop the U.S. team from going. I look forward to it so much and I know if the U.S. team doesn't go that we won't get the great coverage NBC has promised.

and get this, the terrorists CALLED AHEAD to say that bombs were planted in a police station and the authorities STILL didn't manage to prevent this. ahm...

Despite its history, Athens is just not the place to properly host this event, with or without a war going on. I have been to Athens and dranked their OOOZO, and their water is not recommended for drinking.

There will be a great many big name pullouts. They are sending a message. Well, at least the Romanian girls will still tumble. They don't scare for nothing.

..hmm thatd be pretty difficult to do when there were three of them, 2 of which went off within 10 minutes of the call + they needed to evacuate the entire building and get it cordoned off not you tell me how they're supposed to find and disfuse these bombs in that ten minute span eh?

..they did a good job - atleast nobdy got killed or hurt and the one that did get slightly hurt was a police officer..

and their water is not recommended for drinking...the water is said to be drinkable in athens and all the major cities - but even so no need to worry and theres bottled water like every 100 ft that you can buy and its very cheap .. ;)

this definitely does not bode well for the feeling of security during the olympics. :(
I agree, I hope everything ends up allright.
