    No, the Tibetans really did do that. It wasn't exactly a peaceful protest. On the other hand, China hasn't reacted to it as well as...

    ...anyway, I'll be boycotting the Olympics. But then again, I never watch them anyway. =P

    (I thought plenty of countries had freedom of information and no censorship on the internet. I've never heard of those problems in Canada...)

    aye, neither have i. then again, canada is relatively left-leaning compared to the rest of the world. sometimes i think people take it too far. in any case, must suck trying to govern 1/6 of the world.

    Why? Do you think your own country's poop doesn't smell? The US has a bad track record also. I would like to get the fact from all sides.

    ^ agreed.

    Sad to see how the media can influence so many people.

    We don't have enough oil for the US to ignore the human rights abuse (unlike Saudi Arabia, for example).

    Oh, gee, I wonder. Could it be the human rights violations that go on there? Just maybe?

    What you should be asking is "Why does the world appear to hate China more than any other country with human rights violations?". Which would be wrong since the world does pay attention to most of them that are as bad as China's. Even though people aren't always logical and realistic (Tibet and Taiwan are never going to be their own nations, and that's probably okay, although I'm not saying things should stay as they are now), it doesn't mean that they're wrong about everything that's happening there.
