I think this is a real chance for them to show the world what is it like in China. All over the years nobody of the "Good Countries" was interested in chinese people, but today millions of people can see them and watch their massages. I can understand them.
I can understand people thinking the Games should be boycotted. I think it's naive to think China will change if we're nice to it. Like Russia I think they would change more if the International Community it's disapproval more often. Mercator, i've just realised you're Chinese! :o
