Ban the Russian government

By all means, let the International Olympic Committee ban the entire Russian team from the Rio Olympics. But not because most of their athletes will have been on performance enhancing drugs. This will never be entirely eradicated in the case of a few dishonest athletes while there are huge prizes for sportspersons. Ban the Russians because their whole government has obviously been implicated in deception against most of the athletes of the free world.
“All’s fair in love and war” is acceptable enough. But a ban would reassure ordinary Russian people that the instinct for fair play has not entirely been smothered elsewhere in the world even though it must be in short supply in their country.
