what is all this about anti-Olympics? I would disqualify all nation that succeed in extinguishing the flame. And who the heck decided to let a dictator country host the events!
For the people who don't know what the Tibet thing is about... Tibet had a very, very unique, spiritual culture back in the day, and then they were annexed by Red China. In 1959, the American CIA supplied information and supported politically a Tibetan uprising, which led to almost a million people unaccounted for, and 1.25 million Tibetan men dead... out of the 3, 4, 5 million people that accounted for the whole population. Since then, there`s been DOZENS, maybe HUNDREDS, of incidences where supporters of Tibet have been killed by torture, sent out of country to work as labor in China, or simply killed by the Chinese for shouting slogans in the streets.
Media is suppressed and censored in Tibet.. no reporters are allowed in or out, and being caught filming a riot or protest in Tibet will have you easily shot by the Chinese.
To add to it all, the culture of Tibet has been completely smothered by the millions of chinese immigrants.
