Chaos Unfolds in Northeast Brazil Just Before the Olympics
War Is Boring

Not to disregard the seriousness of the situation, but this is really akin to declaring that there’s chaos unfolding in the New York/New England area just days before the Olympics open in Los Angeles. The article is framing the circumstances in such a way to make it sound like there’s a direct impact or threat to Olympic events, when that’s not really the case. Unless there’s some sort of military presence that was intended for the Olympics that’s now being diverted to the Northeast to address what’s going on up there.
