    Coming from pro-democracy Hong Kong, I must say I support China’s stopping the Tibet riots this time. Many innocent lives, including children, were taken by the rioters, some burnt alive! The rioters (even monks) looted local businesses and caused widespread damage. They had to be stopped. Like how the French police used force to stop the violent student demonstrations 1 or 2 years ago.

    The Chinese could have handled the international press better and not try to hinder the spread of news reporting and information flow.

    But please don’t be hypocrites, and use the Beijing Olympics as a chance to vent your hatred towards China, for whatever reason.

    me: I don’t think this is about venting hatred towards China. I truly think this is about something bigger and better. Talking to my husband last night, and reading your comment here, made me think about what I really stand for. Have written another post about it. Wish you’d read, and react.
