I wish the Winter Olympics never went to Russia

I wish the Winter Olympics never went to Russia. My reason being that all we ever hear about is how oppressed a certain group of people are. Meanwhile 130,000 have died thus far in Syria and those same people are subsisting on weeds. There are far more important things in the world than the "horrible, horrible" rainbow crushing Russians. The Russian political system and it's leader are what they are and there are many, many others that are oppressed in Russia. I suspect that if the communists were still in power that things would be much worse. Someday things may improve in Russia for "all" oppressed people, or they could get much worse. Meanwhile people are dying in Syria. —Whistling past the cemetary
