Berlin - Germany's foreign minister has warned China that its response to the crisis in Tibet may jeopardize the Summer Olympics in Beijing, a newspaper reported on Friday.
Frank Walter Steinmeier criticized the Chinese government's lack of transparency in the ongoing conflict, according to an interview with the newspaper Bild that will appear in Saturday's edition.
"This much is clear: the Olympic games don't work like they did 80 years ago," Steinmeier said according to an advance copy of the article made available by Bild Friday.

Which leads to my other thought, that these "spontanious" riots could be instigated by the CIA.
More Mistakes:...Krishna Menon, in Nehru's presence, sharply told the senior officer, who made the presentation, that he was "lapping up CIA agent provocateur propaganda."...
Agent Provocateur - Tibet vs China
DHARMSALA, India - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called on the world Friday to denounce China's crackdown of anti-government protests in Tibet, calling the crisis "a challenge to the conscience of the world."
Pelosi, one of the fiercest Congressional critics of China, was greeted by cheering Tibetans as she arrived to meet the Dalai Lama. She is the first major official to visit the leader of Tibet's exile community since peaceful protests turned violent last week in the Chinese-ruled region.

We shouldn't boycott. We shouldn't provoke China.
If China decides to dump Americas debt we are screwed.
Big time. If China went on an embargo with America our economy would be crushed.
We should not provoke China. Not over the olympics, not over Tibet... seriously... this is stupid.
The olympics going smoothly is something that makes the whole world feel at ease. If any conflicts arise concerning China and the Olympics I'm just gonna throw in the towel : it's all over.
Instead of aiming our political outrage at our own leaders we have people talking about provoking the red dragon. Seriously - think it through people.
Are the Olympics still being played in the future?
As a result of the many conflicts, no, there were no official Olympics after 2004. However, it appears they may be revived in 2040.
If China decides to dump Americas debt we are screwed. Big time. If China went on an embargo with America our economy would be crushed.
