I think its terrible. innocent people are being hurt through various methods whether physically, economically etc most likely it is because the resources their land contains are desperately wanted by another who does not want them to have any control over it - i believe this is the reason for such control china needs over tibet. This subjugation of life is a crime, not only in tibet, but palestine and all other countries being manipulated and controlled by people who have no right being there, whether it's through physical, economic, military etc presence.
If they break news that a mass riot has broken out, why should people gasp with surprise. If you're being told how to live your life to the point where you have no freedom of thought and are monitored right down to the colour of your underwear, why should people listen ? It is when people give up and give in that the world is doomed. Without the fighting spirit that life brings, there is no real life. It is tragic that innocent people died in the protests but to die quietly, living your life as you are told is a worse death.

I also think it's cowardly that the olympic comittee won't move the event. why not move it to a country that has already staged it (that way the arenas are already built, space is adequate and the funds allocated to the olympics should just be relocated to where ever it's going to be held. sure it will be a rush plan but to hold something this big in a country that is not only killing the world concerning environmental affairs but crushing a nation - that is unforgivable. The world should not stand by cowardly and give in. It is a great honour to be chosen as an athlete for your country but to participate in something being staged in a manner void of honour gives the entire ceremony a disgraceful air. these athletes should stand up and say no more. Often times, to do the right thing will cost sacrifice to the one involved, but to do nothing at all will be at the peril of all - these world athletes should unite and say no as one representative entity. I just wish people were less cowardly.
