we can blame the U.S. for a buncha stuff.
...like losing trillions of dollars in the iraq war.
and purposely invading iraq just for the oil, obviously.
-.-
what happened to the love of sports?
why does this stuff have to do with sports???
what does politics even have to do with the olympics?

sorry, i just don't see much connection there.

No, it's the Olympics, it's a time where people come together to set aside differences and compete in things. Politics should stay out of it.

Not to mention I'm sick of how the people are protesting. They're like stopping the ceremonies and most unnecessary is the extinguishing people's torches. A lot of people work hard to get to the Olympics, it means a lot of them and they aren't part of the government they just want to compete or something and instead getting their special moment people are like protesting against them.

Also, a lot of the protesters are just going with the bandwagon. Can most of them tell you what is happening? I mean why now? China always had problems, why are they protesting now? When other people are?


i agree tat politics should stay out of olympics..
olympics is a sport event and many ppl work hard to make it happen
yet there are ppl are misusing it to promote their own benefit n at the same time extinguishin others' efforts
supposingly olympics is a very 'pure' event yet their are tainting it unnecessarily

I agree.
Olympics shouldnt be boycotted.

I don't understand why everyone has such a grudge against China.


same. it seems like there's some sort of conspiracy against China. it's probably because it's beginning to become powerful, so it's a threat to other superpower countries.. <_<;



yeah, exactly.

yea, the U.S. like totally invade everyone's privacy so they shouldn't even be commenting about other pple invading other people's countries.
so why should we boycott the olympics?
pple want to boycott it because of what bad things the chinese government does, or stuff like animal cruelity. but does that have anything to do with sports?
unless you are vegetarian, just remember we are also killing animals and eating them. it's just that WE don't skin them.
...
because it's already skinned and chopped up for us in the grocery stores. :T

You forgot about the U.S. wasting a big amount of resources in the world and the all the pollution its caused.



I am sick of hearing people complaining about how badly Tibet is being treated. It's not like all the Tibetans were so much better off before, so boo-freaking-hoo. If you're going to be pissed about China over this, then you might as well pick out the faults of all the other countries in the world. Do you really want to waste those people's training and carrying that freaking torch around (by the way, what the fuck? I get that it's a tradition and all, but, come on).
And unless you're a vegetarian, don't complain about animal cruelty because, in case you forgot, cows and pigs are animals, too and they get treated like crap.


i know, every country has it's own flaws. people are just trying to find excuses to keep china from having the olympics.
haha, now that i think aobut it, we are basically killing animals everyday! (well, indirectly)
:T maybe i should go vegetarian...

The Beijing Olympics was suppose to be of good intentions and many of the Chinese are looking forward to it. However, as most of you know, there has been great turmoil in the country, especially in Tibet, who protests about China's rule. Through historical facts, Tibet was taken over by China in the 1950s and was look down upon, since colonialization was over many years ago. Because of China's rules, the people in Tibet, especially the religious people were not allowed to worship freely. The Dalai Lama and other religious people were chased out of the country and were consistently blamed for wrong doings they had clearly not commit. When the Olympics were decided to be run in China, the Tibetan people decided to use this as a momentum to open the eyes of the world of the real China under its' mask. When the west started seeing the lack of human rights in the country, some westerners who were working on the Olympics were to uncomfortable working in the country and resigned fairly quickly. The Chinese government noticed the turmoil occuring and decides to shut down all internet connections dealing with free speech so that the people can stay naiive to the truth. And quite recently, there were debates whether the leaders such as the President of France, Prime Ministers of Britain and Canada and the President of the United States should attend the openning cermonies. The Protests and boycott rallies were gettingfrom bad to worse, and even the pm of Canada stated that if the boycotting rallies were getting stronger, then the country itself will not go to the Olympics altogether. But by doing this, athletes would not be able to participate in the event they were training their whole lives on. Also, if we boycott the Olympics, it may affect the relationships between the west and China. Lastly, by boycotting the Olympics, we would be stepping on the Chinese people's pride and may result very negatively in the futurem, especially in changing China's views such as human rights and a sense of democracy. So, what do you think?



Tibet was under the chinese rule starting from the 1950s, but before that, tibet had a caste system and sure, the highest (royal) class people obviously had the freedom to worship and do whatever they wanted;however, the people from the lowest class in tibet were slaves. they had NO rights and no real home. they were often chained to their feet when they were working in the fields. Because china took over, the caste system was abolished and these slaves were set free.

Th Dalai Lama was not only exiled from China, but he was also exiled from other countries like nepal and india. Surely, there must be a reason they were blamed for wrongdoings, right?

Why boycott the olympics? what happened to the love of sports and everything the olympics is really about?
The Chinese people put so much time and effort to build those stadiums and celebrate the traditions that came from Greece, and now, people don't want the olympics to continue just because of politics. the chinese government obviously has flaws, just like the governments from ALL the other countries.
And what is up with "having to turn everything in to a democracy?"
why can't people accept other forms of government?
i don't see democracy any good. i live in the U.S. and im not seeing much from our democracy...
...
at least, not from Mr. Bush >.<
im not directing all of this towards you,
just the way people think.
i hope you dont get too offended ^-^




tibet broked off from china in 1911 with the collapse of the manchu dynasty. they were RE-conquered in the 1950s after the decline of the nationalist and the rise of the communist party.

tibet, has been a part of china since the qing dynasty. this means, before even Germany and Italy were unitd in the 1870's, tibet has already been part of china. i just felt needed to mention these facts, since no1 i see have mentioned.
just wanted to say tibet was part of china long before the 1950's

The Dalai Lama is full of shit. The stuff he tells the media are just a pack of lies and you people who sympathize with him are just as bad for believing it. Get your facts straight before making statements about something you don't know a rat's ass worth about.
