Soldiers and surface to air missiles? What do they have to do with the Olympics?
When the games begin in London in July, they could be stationed on top of a block of residential flats to ward off any airborne terrorist threats.
People who lived in the private gated flats in bow, east of London, received a leaflet warning them that soldiers and police will be stationed at their building during the games, but Britain’s Ministry of Defense says it’s still evaluating the situation.
It’s just one more reason to dread the games if you live in London, as journalist Michael Goldfarb does.
He writes, “The closer the Games come in time and space the more I am dreading them.”
