Global locations for the olympics???


I was just pondering about the sensless bombings that took place in London earlier this month on an average day of people trafic. Imagine what the personal toll would have been if the population using those transit services had trippled or quadrupled in the case of hosting an olympic event. would it not make more sense to have different countries host some of the events...I know this would take away from the diversity and probably the popularity of the olympics itself. it's almost inevitable that each succesive olympics will cost more to put on because of increased security. Just look at the Athens Games, Greece lost money and to the best of my knowledge they are still paying for those games. By hosting some of the events in different countries you spread the cost of security, which is a major cost. There would also be a smaller population which would limit potential for casualties if there was an unfortunate event to occur. I know this will never happen but it's just a thought to try to increase safety and security.
