It is just so shame to try to spoil the Olympic torch

I think we are all not cavemen. The Olympic Games should stand for the peaceful competition for all human beings. Hard to believe that some people try to spoil this holy ceremony. A disable Chinese girl called Jin Jing experienced it in Paris. She held the Olympics torch and a blind man was behind her to hold her wheel chair. Some people still wanted to take away the Olympic torch from such a situation. What a shame! Jin Jing is a brave girl. She is weak, and she is disable, but she still tried her best to protect the Olympic torch and I am so moved to see it. I don't have to say more about it. I just want to tell people all over the world. That is the Beijing Olympics will still be one of the most successful Olympics. And China still goes forward to develop. I love China

when the Westerns are bulging on "Peace and Humanity", then what are they doing towards a disabled and little young girl? Where are their "Peace and Humanity"? I am sorry and i try to be calm but this whole event really brings me mad. Funny things are still to come after the event. There first comes some "high class" French politicians apologizing for the "unfortunate incident happened to JinJing in France during the Torch Relay". But we all know politicians are little better than a shiting horse. So we wont take that too seriously. And then on the same day, the Govern of Paris actually holds a "Honoary medal to Dala Lama", who is supposed to be the one behind all the Tibet riots. So that is also called "Peace and Humanity"? Shame on French politicians

I was totally disgusted by the uncivilized act of harassing the torch passing ceremony, when I read about the news online. As what you said, it's a holy ceremony and shouldn't be stained by the filthy political agenda. It's a sport event and just simply have nothing to do with politics. Therefore, we should supported the Olympic grand opening and defy those people who intended take advantage by spoiling it! I am with you, youless!

i don't think anything will happen. The kind of angry response they will get from the local people would be much too risky.

The torch should be protested with every step every carrier takes, because that expression of freedom is exactly what china denies its own people. Saying you love china has got to be one of the most naive statements I have seen anyone on here make in a very long time. Saying you love china as a country is like saying you love the guy who lives in the big house on the corner who abuses his guests, rapes his kids, tortures his family and then has the never to tell you to but the hell out of his business.

What you said it not correct. You have to come to China to see whether we are so suffering.

When and where you have been to China? I was born and grow up here. I don't deny that there are still many problems in my country. However, there are still some positive aspects in my country, too. I don't feel I live in a suffering place. If you can't see anything good here, I am wondering whether you are _l_n_. I don't like insulting people, but I can't think out a suitable English word here. We can still discuss it in peace.

It is a shame that people think it is okay to add politics to a event that was suppose to be politically free.I hope Jin Jing remembers fonding her experience with the torch.I don't know that much about China and I am looking forward to seeing how the games go, especially the opening ceremonies.It should be wonderful and so colorful.

You are very nice and thank you. Some people who don't know more about China, they even haven't been to China. But they still use their limited knowledge to criticize my country and that's not fair. Let's enjoy the Beijing Olympics

Well let me put it this way. I am a Chinese and of course I support the Olympics in China. At the same time, I think it's a worldwide sports event and no one should use this occasion to express their political views, it's about sports, it's not about political issues. But also, I think we, as Chinese, should focus on making the event successful instead of spending energy on protesting and stuff.

That's great. I think she is becoming famous because of this issue. And she really did a good job to protect the torch.

I had to agree with you on this. If those people wanted to protest about China, they should do it in other forum then try to spoil the Olympic torch ceremony and try to harrass a disable girl. Its a bad to harass a girl and but disable ones? Its despicable! Sport should be just that. No politics should be involved in it. Sadly, probably that the way for the protestant people to gain media attention which is utterly wrong.

It is so great to read this discussion here. Recently a lot of rumors are going on. I just can not understand why there are some many this kind of things connected with Beijing Olympic Games. After all, it is also s symbol of peace. Those who bear bad purpuse please leave the Olympic to be Olypic. I assume the whole world would like to enjoy a wonderful games. I firmly believe that Beijing Olympic Games will be one of the most successful one. And China will keep walking.

i completely agree with you, my friend. but it seems that a lot of people are becoming more uncivilized to the point of using the games as a medium to express their anger. psychologically, most people have personal issues and they just found an avenue to divert their anger and frustrations through a cause to justify their incapability to handle or manage their life. it is good that somehow that there are people voicing out their discontent against the chinese government but somehow crossing beyond the line.doing it means that they are like the ones they are against with having a machiaveli principle in mind, the end justify the means..

I think it's very wrong to criticize a country when people who don't know more about it.

i think the spirit of a game should not be spoiled. i am not taking the side of any country. but whatever may be the issues, those can be taken in other forum, not in a game like olympics. it will only dampen the spirit of game.
