Welcome to the first Olympics in the shadow of ISIS: Rio prepares for Games with a warship on the Copacabana, troops on the streets and chemical attack drills as $900 million security operation begins

This is the warship stacked with missiles and an arsenal of lethal weaponry that is leading the show of force ahead of the first Olympics Games held in the shadow of ISIS terrorism.

Brazil is using the frigate, and a small fleet of other vessels to patrol the waters around tourist hot spot Copacabana Beach – where some of the thousands of sport loving fans will visit Rio during the world’s biggest sporting event, when it begins next week.

  • I wonder if the bookies are taking bets on who gets Zika?

      I saw a pic of some of their street hookers that were getting dolled-up for the Olympics, and man, they are some hard looking women.
      I’d roll the dice with Zika before them.
      Poor women, that must be a tough life.

      This is going to be some kind of massively shitty Olympics.
      I predict that this one will be so bad that they will have to change how venues are awarded, because this one is going down under the weight of its own corruption.

    I’m no military genius, but how is a guided missile cruiser or a “frigate” to you Godless but still English speaking foreigners, going to thwart a terrorist attack?
    Do they think the Americans are going to seize this moment for a surprise amphibious invasion of Brazil?
    I say America because nobody else really does ‘amphibious’ anymore but us.
    Like I said, I ain’t no military genius…

    • It’s PR to reassure the customers.

      I think the name of the Frigate is the Brazilian Ship Maginot Line,
