A recent poll among Americans revealed the majority thought it was a BAD idea to have the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, mostly for security and terrorism reasons.  But now, journalists and athletes are finding after over half a decade of preparation, it looks like a war zone!

NBC and other sports reporters arriving have found stunning conditions upon arrival.  Hockey players sleeping in tiny twin beds barely fit for a teenager,   water outages that upon being restored produced “yellow” water from the sink taps,  and “reverse” toilet seats.

We have included some pictures that were Tweeted by reporters Stacy St. Clair, Simon Rosen and David Winstanley show unbelievable incompetence and leave you wondering, “what have the Russians been doing for 5-plus years?”    One reporter tweeted that they were warned about not using the tap water to wash their face!     It has been suggested the U.S. send care packages to the journalists and athletes because for the next couple of weeks, they will be living in a “war zone.”   See some of the images below. You might have a little trouble figuring out which ones are Sochi, and which ones are Chernobyl – the site of the infamous Soviet Nuclear disaster from many years ago.
