Tibet and Olympic Politics
Hillary calls for Bush to have the U.S. team boycott the opening ceremonies. Any thoughts?
I see it as a little late. As soon as the Olympic committee decided to give the Olympics to a non-democratic state, we knew we were going to have to look past the repressive government. We already knew they were repressing people in Tibet (I mean, how long has Richard Gere been running around demanding that the Chinese government "free Tibet.") So why suddenly all the concern over China's human rights record?
