I don't think anyone will boycot these games, the past has proven that it dosen't really achieve anything except to piss off some athletes and all
their supporters that have worked hard and planned for 4 years. IMO.
There is no way that China can stop all of the activists/protesters etc etc, getting in to the country! They've let me in enough times!!
False Flag. Bad idea, really bad idea. Do you not watch 24!! The Chinese know what's going on out there. Their not as dumb as you look!!
The activists will get in and they will start doing their thing! They will be moved to an out of the way location and the press will be reminded that
insighting public disorder is frowned upon. i.e. filming this will create panic and will make people upset. I think the press will cover the issues
discreatly and give the protesters a wide berth and will concentrate on the sporting action, the world unity and togetherness aspects of the event.
that said it wouldn't surprise me if the Chinese have teams of coppers, that follow the more vocal and agrivating activists back to their hotels and
quietly remove them from their country, which is their rite as it is thier country and therefore their laws.
When in Rome and all that.
There will be plenty of action on you tube and such sites, but by and large I don't expect there to be too much hassle. I don't see plod wading in a
beating a bunch of activists. I think they will be allowed to protest in controlled areas.
I really hope it dosen't spoil the Olympics, dispite the bad history China has in the human rights and treatment department. I do believe they are

they are getting there.
I think what worries people around the world more is that soon China will be a true world power and might start using flexing it's considerable
