Considering its Nazis origins, I'm not surprised.

Techincally those were Europeans. Since they didn't break from the union that early if I remember correctly they were still part of England.



In any case nobody is perfect everyone will do something wrong and right.

Tibetans just want democracy.. i dare you to live in china wherein you will be massacred if you fight their government policy.. or you will be massacred if you are a obvious part of a religious group. (fallon gong)


Well, I lived in China and the Chinese government policies were wonderful, I had nothing against it.
So what China annexed Tibet? There are so many countries in this world who have taken over another country.


Britain and Spain for example.

Yes, I would actually be really happy if China annexed Canada. If I were in China right now, and if I had something against the government, then I wouldn't be "declared missing" since I am a Canadian citizen and the Chinese government wouldn't do anything to me even if I were only Chinese.

i feel why people dislike the fact that
the Olympics in China is taboo.
but i dont think stopping the torch will do them any good.

were you being sarcastic about the living there part or did you really like it, i went to china before and i was a bit paranoid since there were instances where the government gets really pissy and grab people for public protest, the main point i was trying to drive was what cave did those people crawl out of if they were intending to do what those European pricks tried to do with the other torch, but failed since the committee extinguished the flames themselves

People shouldn't be protesting
think of the ATHLETES! that have been training for years for the olympics, the olympics can't be canceled! never! who cares where it's held at.
