As I watch the daily raping of our society not by its citizens but by our sorry leader as he helps the affluent steal our future and then pays them for it in his race to destroy our America, totally control us, and finish emplacing his new version of America while he thinks, finishing his new world order. Like you I also watch as our Democratic nominees exercise in futility knowing there is no way the awesome abusive powers Bush has amassed will be allowed in Democratic hands. Elections will not be fair and like the last two this election too will be stolen one way or the other. This is not a Democracy only a facade of one. How can we possibly expect any other country to want to be a Democracy with the fine example of abuse of the people, their trust, and their money, let alone the corruption and deceit? Are the countries of the world Democracy or not any better or worse than what we have become under Bush?
Anyway, I happen to think MacArthur had it right when during Korea he wanted to keep going right through China. He disagreed with Truman so he was let go. Things would certainly be different today if MacArthur had his way. Sound familiar in regards to Admiral Fallon? We have been dealing with China ever since and along with the rest of the world thanks to Bush that is coming to a head.
* The future is not Tomorrow! The future is before us period and we better start thinking about it! We have to stop looking at the promise of tomorrow and look at the future if we are too have one! We are whoring Democracy under Bush. Hosting the Olympics is the Holy Grail of acceptance to Western Society and civilization. You know China's record, what the hell? how can they possibly be allowed to host the Olympics? Are we desperate? are we hoping and praying for a future? Is it for their Financial leadership of the world or just us? Media rights? Human rights? environmental leadership? Yeah right! Worse, ours isn't any better!
Just think about it! What are we letting ourselves in for this summer? Intense criticism has surrounded China’s planned route for the Olympic Torch relay prior to Beijing 2008. Human rights groups have also slammed China’s human rights record, their voices joined by US politicians who oppose China’s alleged sale of arms to Sudan. "One World, One Dream." China’s slogan for the 2008 Olympic does not seem a reality yet. The recent weeks’ uproar underscores the political sensitivities involved in China playing host to the Olympics. The announcement of the 2008 Olympic torch relay was engulfed in controversy as critics slammed Beijing's plans for stops in Taiwan and Tibet. Taiwan rejected being part of the Olympics Games with China’s planning of the Olympic torch relay going through Taiwan. China considers Taiwan part of its territory, to be retaken by force if necessary, following their split in 1949 after a civil war. But Taiwan is opposing the route as a symbol of Taiwan being under Chinese control.
Amnesty International published a new report stating that The 2008 Olympic Games has become a catalyst for more repression in China, not less, and that China has failed to live up to promises to improve human rights for the 2008 Olympics. "The IOC cannot want an Olympics that is tainted with human rights abuses,” the deputy Asia-Pacific director of Amnesty International, Catherine Baber said to Associated Press.
"It would be a disaster for China if the Games were to be marred by protests, from concerned individuals and groups, who will undoubtedly link your government to the continued atrocities in Darfur, if there is no significant improvement in the conditions," said a letter issued by California Democratic Tom Lantos, chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs according to Reuters. The letter warned that China's supplying of arms and other support to the Khartoum regime could tarnish the 2008 Beijing Olympics. threat of an Olympics Boycott becoming more real
The Dalai Lama said China, as the world's most populous nation, deserves to host the Olympics but it must look seriously at repairing its human rights record "in order to be a good host." He laughed at suggestions that the exile government was fueling the anti-Chinese protests, saying it was the natural result of deep resentment caused by China's treatment of Tibetans as second class citizens in their own land.
* I'll tell you why! those mountains are China's water source and its future. It is only normal for them to want to control their water supply their future. Like Bush and the rest of the world today they are going about it all wrong. Remember Tiananmen square?
Part of the escalation on the Tibetan issue rests with Beijing itself which ratcheted- up stakes in the region with a railway line operationalised in mid 2006, and other infrastructural projects put in line to fully integrate Tibet into its modernization drive. Moreover, in early May this year the Olympics torch will be taken to the Chinese side of the Mount Everest a sacred spot for Tibetans. This would have signified not only generating patriotism among Chinese but also in complete domination of Tibet by China. In the backdrop lack of any progress in the five talks so far between Beijing and the Dalai Lama's representatives, the younger Tibetan elements have been restive of late who are fuelling protests against Beijing Olympics. china's Olympics and the 3 evils
