Toothpaste Alert Issued

With the Sochi Olympics at hand, the security is being beefed up around the environs of the games site. Several black widows are awaiting the opportunity to sabotage the Olympics. And other terroristic threats have been received by the authorities. The US is especially taking extra precautions to prevent any mishap. 

All airline officials are being forewarned regarding a new method that is being used by insurgents and other disaffected elements. The explosives are passed from under the noses of customs officials in the shape of toothpaste tubes and cosmetic bottles. Strange as it may seem the threat is very palpable. 

A U.S. law enforcement official told CNN that "the cause for the Homeland Security alert was specific to the imminent start of the games."

Posses in Russia’s soft underbelly, especially in the regions of the Caucasus and Dagestan, are ever willing to make intermittent attacks on the erstwhile superpower in the north. And can there be a better method of gaining worldwide notoriety than by bombing innocent spectators and athletes at the Sochi Olympics. That is why the United States is trying to minimize the risks. 

Even Russia has banned all passengers from carrying any liquids on board flights. After all, Osama bin Laden may be dead, but Al-Qaeda remains at large. Most US athletes will travel to the Sochi Olympics despite the impending threat of terrorist attacks. A few are avoiding the Olympics though since the chances for trouble are there alright.
