...no snow Winter Olympics coming soon

...a story of the lighting of the torch,



...(never mind the genocide(s))

Greek Police arrest people who were not protesting, and released four hours later without charges, at the behest of a Chinese official; this the "Olympics": try using their Trademark, the IOC is as corrupt as its willing partners, all for greed. Ironically, China has not learned anything form their last experience of being the host for these events, still using every fiction as a subterfuge, "controlling" the narrative, still getting the worst of it tarnishing themselves.

This incident does not bode well for February's games.

...the Olympic Truce; so many refuse to sign it: China may win more gold than ever, such as it is.

...when we are watching the games we may think of those who paid the price for these games to be "green".

...a taste of what's to come next month; Australia too, (like Greece), "polite" toward China.

Tennis Australia’s crackdown on spectators doing the same has been broadly criticised by social media users, journalists and current and former tennis players – including tennis legend Martina Navratilova, who described it as “really, really cowardly.”

"Alpine skier Yiannos Kouyoumdjian will be Cyprus’ sole representative at the Winter Olympics next month in Beijing, the Cyprus Olympic Committee announced on Tuesday."

...Cyprus does not support the diplomatic boycott of China, and at the UN reaffirming its support for neutrality when it comes to the Olympic Games.

..."blue skies" in Beijing, but it is a ghost town.

Who pays the costs of such an event, (and such grandeur), empty hotels and rapid transit rail lines to nowhere actually, where the locals are (and have been) paying dearly, is still to be sorted out.

...hard to watch these Olympics with any enthusiasm frankly. Already, i was soured to them years ago, with the Paralympics playing second fiddle, a second act still, rather than the warm-up everyone will want to see, waiting and wanting to see.

...they are too political, (in the wrong way) what with the corruption and all, the motives for hosting such events has become increasingly complex and far beyond a venue where the world's youth may enjoy a common joy of living, through sport.

...i am hopeful though, because things can change.

...yes the torch bearer for China is Uighur.

''Uyghur torchbearer for 2008 Beijing Olympics serving 14-year sentence in Xinjiang''
