Poll of 22 countries finds China Seen More Favorably Than US, Russia
Worldwide, young people are much more prone to view China as benign. Among those 18-29 years old, a robust 58 percent view China positively, while this true of only 43 percent of those over 60. Those with lower levels of education are less apt to view China positively (45%) than are those with medium (51%) or high levels of education (52%). Interestingly, men are more trusting of China (53%) than are women (47%).
The Beijing Olympics is supposed to celebrate China's entry onto the world stage, a major exclamation point in this so-called Chinese Century. With 14 months to go, however, the Chinese government is playing defense against charges of unsportsmanlike conduct off the playing field. From accusations of supporting genocide in Darfur to repressing political dissent at home, most of the attacks have come from longtime critics of China who see the Games as a chance to advance their interests after years of getting nowhere with communist officials. And with the slogan for the games being "One World, One Dream," it may be difficult for the Olympic hosts to ignore the clamor from the rest of the globe.
Millions forfeit water to Olympic Games
THOUSANDS of Chinese farmers face ruin because their water has been cut off to guarantee supplies to the Olympics in Beijing, and officials are now trying to cover up a grotesque scandal of blunders, lies and repression.
In the capital, foreign dignitaries have admired millions of flowers in bloom and lush, well-watered greens around its famous sights. But just 90 minutes south by train, peasants are hacking at the dry earth as their crops wilt, their money runs out and the work of generations gives way to despair, debt and, in a few cases, suicide.
In between these two Chinas stands a cordon of roadblocks and hundreds of security agents deployed to make sure that the one never sees the other.

THEY STILL KILL BABY GIRLS IN CHINA, AND NO ONE CARES...
Life does not come much cheaper than this, this is what happens when you're not born a baby boy in China. China ' One Child Per Family' policy has become widely known since being introduced as a population control measure in 1979, but few people realise the extreme measures employed to enforce it in some regions. Some parents only crime was to have too many children -their punishment was to see their new-born baby snatched from their arms and killed. The pressure to have boys has resulted in millions of women aborting or "losing" female babies resulting in an imbalance between the sexes and a desperate shortage of partners and wives.
I waited for three hours and 40 minutes -the police still did not arrive. One lady put some thing to cover the baby. I was afraid that one of the big busses that were passing by may hit the baby. In the end an old man put the baby in a box and dumped it in a rubbish bin. Then the police came and they arrested me. I took some pictures because it was so terrible. Someone told the police and the police were more worried about my photographs than the baby. I was in the police station for one hour. They wanted all of my film and my identification papers. When I gave them some film they let me go."
