We Need to Have a Talk About the 2018 World Cup

With just days until the start of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi with it's palm trees and them buying snow (don't get me started on that...), the safety of the US, and every other countries' for that matter, is in doubt.

Recently, the Russians announced that they were looking for a Black Widow (a wife of a now dead jihadist) in the Sochi area with fears that she was going to bomb, either by herself, or in conjunction with others, at least one locale for the Olympic events.

There are several IOC members on the FIFA Executive Committee that has already accepted bribes democratically voted to pick Russia to host the 2018 World Cup.

So the lingering question here is, if the Russians can't keep the Olympians, their families, or fans safe, should we still keep Russia as the 2018 site for the World Cup?
