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 agree with your sentiment, but I don't think it would make a rats ass bit of a difference. We would only do it because of political or popular pressure. The athletes would suffer but nobody else would.... All the while we'd still be doing everything we could to keep KFC and McDonalds open in China and our ports would continue to fill with Chinese made goods.<br><br>
The difference between how we handle Cuba and China and the real human rights differences between the two are truly applaing. Cuba is at best a rank amatuer in human rights violations when compared to China.
