  1. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/sport/pompeo-calls-us-boycott-beijing-winter-olympics-china-14346690 WASHINGTON: Former secretary of state Mike Pompeo on Friday (Mar 5) backed calls for the United States to boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, saying China's "nasty" activity made it an inappropriate host. Pompeo, a vociferous critic of Beijing while he was Donald Trump's top diplomat, said the previous administration had tried in its final months to persuade the International Olympic Committee to move the Winter Games. "I hope that our athletes get a chance t

  5. That's a surprising statement from Cruz - maybe he has given up trying for 2024.
  6. https://www.insidethegames.biz/index.php/articles/1104879/beijing-2022-boycott-nikki-haley The IOC is netrual on genocide.
  7. https://www.theguardian.com/sport/blog/2021/mar/01/boycott-beijing-winter-olympics-berlin A good article.
  8. This type of behaviour and no complant from the IOC will see nations permantly pulling out the Olympic movement.
  9. As I have been saying for months. The IOC has no idea that boycotts are likely - they seem to be think it won't happen.

  11. Western companies are being targeted for their Olympic links either direct or indirect.
  12. For how long through - the sponsors are now being targeted - USOC might find it's commercially more viable to boycott.
  13. https://timesofsandiego.com/sports/2021/02/26/biden-mulls-beijing-olympic-boycott-would-doom-san-diego-medal-favorites-white-humphries/ Press in the USA seem to be reading the white house statement as if Biden might recommend a full boycott.
  14. https://uk.news.yahoo.com/us-boycott-2022-winter-olympics-040240212.html Boycotting will be popular - will Biden want the Republicans to be able to argue he is soft on China - I don't think so - America will ultimately boycott IMO.
