What the hell do we do about the Olympics in China? How do we justify going in there and pretending that the Chinese government isn't a brutal, oppressive totalitarian regime?<br><a href=",2933,338610,00.html" target="_blank">,2933,338610,00.html</a><br><br>
Should we boycott?<br><br>
(I'm home sick today, and I'm cranky and bored.)

We went to the Berlin Olympics in 1936.<br><br>
I don't think China is any worse than Nazi Germany.
But I don't think our boycott of the Moscow Olympics was very sucessful nor was the USSR's boycott of the LA games in '84.<br><br>
I say let's go to the Olympics and kick some Chinese ass.
What better message could be sent that there there was no such thing as a master race than Jesse Owens winning a gold medal?<br><br>
Our boycott of the Moscow Olympics did not make the USSR get out of Afghanistan.<br><br>
And our boycott of this Olympics will not impact one iota what China does in Tibet.
