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 might see this logic if our boycott would mean that the Olympics would be moved elsewhere. There would be a solid accomplishment there.<br><br>
HOWEVER, it will not be. Which makes the boycott less practical and more symbolic. And I do not feel the Olympics is the place to make political symbolic stands.<br><br>
The only people hurt by this would be the athletes. And it would be contrary to the spirit of the Olympics.
