i think it's absurd that they think "not showing up to the opening ceremony" is sufficient in fighting violations against human rights. (btw, no president has ever attended a foreign olympics ceremony.... how is that even punishment..... and, above all, it's BUSH.... who cares if he shows up :rolleyes: )

wtf is going on??:confused:

Sadly every free nation knows the Chinese Government is gaining $ and strength on the backs of its' common people,and because of the import/export power the rest of the world just looks the other way:rolleyes: i mean they could probably decree that the losers of any events are to be jailed for not winning,,and the rest of the world would say .....ooookay,See you in the village!

Gotta do what you gotta do. Not sure how planting any trees right now is going to help much, last time I checked the olympics are in a few months right?

What you should do is put this in to the context of human induced global warming in the U.S. Let that sink in before you vote too passionately about costly pollution control here when our neighbors share our atmosphere.

For those in cali, it won't be long before you guys get your share of this pollution; it's coming across the ocean as we speak. I'll be in china from the 9th to the 22nd or so. I'll be in beijing for the first week or so, I'll let you know how many trees I see.
