SECURITY – 2010 OLYMPICS
From Vancouver to Whistler and along the West Coast
Comes numerous signs of trouble from a variety of folks
Our Canadian Terrorists of Jihad, activists of poverty and more?
Our anti capitalist students have almost threatened a war?
First-nation warrior groups, foreign terrorists and others
Are just a few of the participants like our own tree huggers
Global warming, save the planet, blow the infidels up!
Some folks they will stay away because this is too much?
Wipe the Vancouver streets clean on the lower east side?
Sweep away the homeless with the outgoing tide?
Don’t show Olympic Tourists our needle exchange lines?
Will tourists become theft victims in these troubled times?
How much will all of this security to our taxpayers cost?
BC residents will pay if the games show a loss?
It doesn’t matter too much to Mr. Campbell our crowned king?
As he goes off to study tight security in Bei Jing!

OLYMPICS: 2010 GAMES VIOLENCE FEARED
Signs of trouble emerging now, says expert, who calls plans unprecedented

He said there have been 19 attacks already in Canada “where violence has been used,” such as throwing objects and destroying property.
“A clear upturn in violent protest activity is occurring. It is unprecedented to see this kind of forward planning by activists,” said Quiggin, an expert in jihadist terrorism who has spent 20 years in various intelligence positions in Canada, the U. S. and other countries.
“Most disturbingly, there has been an increased identification of public and private figures by name in numerous postings which announce or encourage violence,” he said. “These attacks have been aimed at senior company officials as well as other employees. “
VANCOUVER — Diverse protest groups will join forces at the 2010 Olympics amid an upsurge of violence, says a former RCMP intelligence and national security expert.
Tom Quiggin says anarchists, native warrior groups, poverty activists, anti-capitalists and students will come together in Vancouver for the Games.
“A convergence among a number of groups has occurred,” said Quiggin, writing from Israel last month in a report for the International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism.
“More social activist groups appear to have shifted their focus from traditional issues and are taking on a more radical perspective,” he said.
“Numerous groups have already begun violent activities and further organization may occur against the background of a troubled global picture,” he said.
Quiggin said three major international events in Canada will be targeted in 2010, including the Winter Olympics, the G8 summit of industrialized leaders and the Security and Prosperity Partnership meetings.
