A question has been raised whether Mr Bush will boycott olympics? Due to recent visit of US speaker to India and her meeting with Dalai Lama irked china and made a firey speech now want that President Bush to consider boycotting beijing olympics, though she is not advocating regarding boycott of olympic games. She also told that american stance has been that bush admn would not boycott the olympic as this grant event should not be mixed with politics. In my opinion olympics is not the property of china or do not belong to china, the recent violence in lhasa should not be viewed with the context of olympics. I do not understand why people and some countries are advocating for boycotting the Beijing Olympics. pkc3000

Olympic Games were held long ago to promote peace, cooperation and nation building towards other nation. if China has no inclination to other nation (Sudan) then whats the point of the virtue of the Olympics? just for the show? i dont want to be mean to China and to the Chinese nation but can they solve their matters without resorting to violence?? their record of human rights atrocities were sky high thats why WE are calling their attention through Olympics.

Yes friends you are rightly explained the china's position. The actual meaning of Olympics to promote harmony,peace, but china's oppression to tibet shows that how much they are concerned with humanity . pkc3000

I would prefer it if sport and politics did not overlap but China has behaved in a terrible and brutal way towards Tibet and we should be asking ourselves how we can send a message to the Chinese Government that the international community neither supports nor approves of wht it is doing in Tibet. Taking action in regard to the Olympics sends out those messages in a major way - it is targetting something that can make an impact. It is not enough just to say you don't approve, you need to do soemthing big

Only the majority of stupid people who can't or won't see what the Chinese governments does to Tibetans or their own Chinese people.

I think it should be boycotted because of the way that Tibetans are treated. How can it not be political, when China is made out to be a fair and just country when it obviously isn't. I feel sorry for the Chinese people but your government is to blame for all this. The recent violence in Lhasa is because of the olympics as the Tibetan people see this as an opportunity to let the rest of the world know about the way they are treated.
