Beijing Olympics is surely in news before the game event is ready to take off. We all know what's happening at the torch rallies in different countries. Anticipating something like that in India, India being a supporter of Tibet's autonomous rule. Some countries are yet to decide whether to attend the opening ceremony to show their protest while some are committed, some invited guests decided to keep themselves away from the torch rallies while some decided to take part. In your view, what's the right thing to do? Go with the spirit of the game or send the message to China by shunning the rally/opening ceremony/game for violating human rights towards the Tibetians.

it's not a business with politic.but what a sad,many politician want to tie it with politics.it's clearly that their purpose was not peaceful,they just wanna China embarrass,contain China's development,they know olympic game is a good opputunity to fulfill their evil purpose.but i think they will be doomed to fail.

I think it's not a matter of politics.It's a matter of the Olympics spirt.I believe the game should not be affected by politics.It's not a game of Chinese or Greek or any other countries in the world.It belongs to our whole human beings. I'm confused why thoes pepole want to destroy the wonderful worldwide game.I think those who want to destroy the Olymipic game deserve condemn from all of the world. No matter how we are differs in our politics ,I think everything can be solved peacefully.The Olymipic game aims at linking all the world together but not breaking up and violence

We should go with the spirit of the Olympic games and don't mix it with politics. The purpose of passing the Olympic torch by way of relay was to spread the Olympic spirit and make the seeds of peace and friendship root, grow and bear fruits in more countries and the five rings represent the close unity and friendsly meeting at the Olympics among athletes from five continents. Some countries want to use the so-called human rights to destroy the peking Olympic and support Tibet autonomous, some western news even publicize the fake new what happened in Tibet days ago. We should try our best to hold together to support the Olympic games. Dalai's evil dream will be smashed.

tibet always be the part of china.those terrorists following Dalai who want to reach their evil purpose of breaking china up through violating the olympic should be punished. while from another part,we can easily understand why Dalai and his people choose to take actions in year 2008.it's the year china holds olympics when the worldwide people focus on china.it's a hard-won opportunity for them to realize their evil purpose. however,olympics is not only chinese sports pageant,it belongs to the whole world. let the politics go away. anyone who wants to make use of it won't come through.
