The Dalai Lama, Tibet's spiritual leader, reiterated Tuesday he was against any boycott of the Beijing Olympics, saying Chinese people should not be blamed for the situation in his homeland.
No one here is talking about giving land back to Tibet. People here are talking about how oppressed the Chinese people are including the Tibetans.
How a country that oppresses their people as bad as China does, the despicable things they do to the handicapped, the child policy and the censorship can host an event that is meant to signify unity, peace and togetherness is beyond me.
The Olympic committee had all the right intentions when it awarded China the games, under certain arrangements and an agreement that the gesture will open China up to being more civilized and begin the 'healing' so to speak. China has done nothing to even try to meet them half way. They took the Olympic games and ran.
As much as the World of Warcraft kid wants to believe that there is not a political agenda behind this, the fact of the matter is there is. Those people have every damn right to protest the Olympics. Unlike the lot of you, they aren't self-serving me-firsts. They are protesting not for themselves, but for the people who deserve it.
