Thumbs up Chinese Olympics boycott threatened - YES, bring on on the SHAME games

http://news.scotsman.com/internation...?id=1549412007

China has failed to act in Burma, Darfur and has its own shameful secrets in its own country and Tibet.

2008 is when they desperately want to shine on the world stage but it's a chance for the world to humiliate China and stand up and say NO! to the country.

I say bring on the boycotts and let's make this the WORST games ever.

They don't deserve it. Besides their athletes will be drugged up.

Re: Chinese Olympics boycott threatened - YES, bring on on the SHAME games

Maybe China should ban all countries that have participated in the Iraq war?

I don't think China would be ashamed at all if the entire world boycotted their Olympics. Shit, then Peng Shuai and Sun Tian Tian might actually avoid execution by winning a medal.

Re: Chinese Olympics boycott threatened - YES, bring on on the SHAME games

I understand that China is the one country that can improve the situation in Burma/Myanmar, but will not do so. I am concerned about this. As a non-democracy, it's very unfortunate that this is the only country that would have impact. I hope something will happen to restore democracy. I don't know what the average world citizen can do.

Re: Chinese Olympics boycott threatened - YES, bring on on the SHAME games

I don't see any problem with Olympics games in China. Are chinese people evil because of their government? They don't deserve to have the chance to see athletes competing?

They do.. But Olympics are a competition between free people.. And any Olympics are not a property of a single country. I am a huge Olympic fan but I am not interested whatsoever in Olympics held by a cruel dictatorship. I can pass on Bejing, easily.. Bring on Vancouver and London.

Re: Chinese Olympics boycott threatened - YES, bring on on the SHAME games

Im not a big fan of China, but its just a matter of time til they are the worlds superpower in terms of greatest economy and military power. The reality is that if governments forbid their athletes to go to the Beijing Olympics than its not only hurting their athletes but its also hurting their economy in the long run.

Note: I was certainly not in favor of Beijing winning the 08 Olympics, it would have been far better to be in another part of Asia

Re: Chinese Olympics boycott threatened - YES, bring on on the SHAME games

The Olympics are supposed to be a time when we put political and social divisions behind us in the spirit of fair and friendly competition. Trying to use it as a tool to "humiliate" China serves no purpose other than to gratify the egos of a lot of self-important people.

The only power to do that is IOC, not you guys.

Did the USA do the right thing by leading a boycott of the Olympics in 1980?

Couldn't have said it better. Also, I'm just about sick of the Sinophobia (anti-Chinese sentiment) of this board.

The only thing that they did wrong, was postponing the boycott announcement to save LP Olympics. That was shameful. Other than that, what was happening in Moscow in 1980 has as much to with Olympics as football matches held between inmates on prison field.

Maybe if you held Israel to the same standards you hold China in relation to human rights, your post might have some merit..

as it stands your post is just the ramblings of an absolute hypocrite.
