London Attacks

How do you think the recent terrorist attack is going to affect the Olympic committees decision on London's bid for the Olympics?

I thought they already made the decision and that it wouldn't be changed (can they change it?).

Well it's kind of too late now, I think! I mean once your awarded can they renig on that or is it set in stone! I would imagine they could probably renig on it and set it elsewhere, and probably should for the sake of saving lives!

If who ever attacked them this time found a loop hole I'm almost positive they will do it again! The British didn't believe there was a need for a war on terrorism and now they got one!

As far as the attacks go, I don't really know who has claimed responsibility for what but you can tell that it was pretty well planned out. I think this may be the wake up call for the British ... they were just slamming Blair to the ground for supporting Bush and his war on terrorism!

I think they should hold the 2012 Olympics in NY!


Just my $0.02 ...... no offense intended!

They did make the decision to hold the Olympics in London. I wonder if the attacks had anything to do with that.

It shouldnt change their mind at all. After all they where awarded the olympics for 2012. A whole lot can and will change between now and then anyway regarless of these awful attacks.

Yeah. The choice is already made. It will be in London.

I don't think it did directly, maybe just coincidental timing ... I think this has more to do with what I said in my previous posts regarding the British and their comments about terrorism! I'm not saying all British in general are included, but as you can see from reports Blair is not the most popular Kat in the crowd!

It's just sad that it happened. I'm sure the country was in celebration over the Olympics being held in their city, then this happens.

besides, like fishfreek said, they are hosting in 2012 and a lot can happen between now and then. I mean, the US was still allowed to host the Salt Lake City Olympics and that was much sooner after the terrorist attack here. We even had someone blow up an area at the Atlanta games with a bomb specifically design to severely hurt people (nails and other debris had been packed into it)! But they still allowed us to host another event.

Yes, you guys are right. Alot can happen between now and then. It's 7 years away. Still, I hate to see this happen to any country.
