  1. It was but we have also seen here that using technical evaluation also has disadvantages. I think the sentiment of it all should come in to place and resolved this issue by letting the Olympic games go on without hitches. Tibet was not on the agenda of the OIC before awarding the Olympics anyway. Human rights violation should be forwarded to the appropriate channel. And, I think China really needs to play low now so that it can overcome this trouble. Chinese people are not bad but the government is headstrong. This is actually not a near perfect democracy we witness in developed countries l
  2. This is more or less a hooliganism than civility which we know the west is used to.
  3. I am not against what the west stands for - that is freedom in its entirety. Should the relay torch be tamperd with when it's not the Chinese government? I think it will most affect the IOC reputation than the Chinese government with time to come. The protest needs to be put under good control as the French government lacked the capacity to do so.
  4. I know that China is ornery in human rights resolution, I know also that it might have taken this hard step as Tibet is using the opportunity to disrupt the Olympic. If any country was to be in China shoe what would it do to curtail this stigmatization?
  5. Many countries have already said the will be attending. We shouldn't let politic takes the turn of another important different entity. I think Tibet issue should be brought to the table for dailogue. Is Tibet asking for dialogue at all?
  6. Is the troubled bird finding it difficult to nest? The nest and watercube are great innovations in the history of the Olympics. They have not only differentiate themselves from Athen's but usher in a new thoughts and feelings about Olympic, of which are very interesting parts of the China host.
  7. To so extent I agree with you but should politic play the most significant part of hosting Olympics? If not that Tibetians were targeting the Olympic at this right timing I don't think anything regarding such hitch would have been a problem in Beijing 2008 cos China put everything in place to host a very good Olympic. I am still waiting to see that this Olympic turns out really spetacular. However, the Chinese are really going to meet more opposition from different parts of the world as the games progress. I so much want the Chinese government to do anything possible and find a lasting solut
  8. Anyway, I have been dabbling into things here lately which is very critical as per my minimum level of knowledge. But, I still think the use of Olympic to address the political turmoil that has been is not too ok for any nation. If I should say here now that it seems like a bait given the Olympic to China when everybody knows Chinese government policies so well -- this is going a long way to create distrust and cold war which might like be exhibited indirectly.
  9. I sincerely don't see the Tibetian subjects really parting away from China to from an independent state. Even the India exile Tibetian spiritual leader, Dalai Lama, made claim to that. If you look closely you will find out that China's inexperienced in handling such trouble. That is among the things which differentiate third world countries from the western ones . On the other hand, I think Chinese people need to learn and they are not doing that yet. The protest upon Olympic torch lit is a signe of more protest and trouble to come. However, boycotting the games is never the best way to appr
  10. Hahaha...lol....hahaha...Oh my goodness. I am yet to see a live dragon maybe it's Beijing with such exceptional part included in the celeberation. I think like the dragon idea if real that's what the hole is going to be meant for.
  11. But that wouldn't stop China from the violation.
  12. Sorry to say this NOC that boycott seems to complicate the whole thing from the look of things and China might be taking on the defense too. Believe me, a round table talk by both sides would save more lives from deing. Not only that other better means can be taken during the dialogue.
  13. I thought all the seats have been installed as at January 29, 2008. Which were in total number of 80,000 seats. What are the above photos still with empty seat spaces?
  14. A word is enough for the wise. The whole boycott is still going to end up on the dailogue table after whatever method you are ascertaining to here. If you look well, the pressure has already been there and people are dieing everyday in Tibet. Don't you think it is time to come to a point and call both side for a better understanding? Do you think China can't agree to the the basic human rights Tibetians are asking for when both sides are called to the round table? C'mon, we should stop taking the long road to solution.
  15. I said dialogue will work as China is becoming more civilized these days. Chinese are humans and I believe they will understand where they are wrong if properly put to them(government). If we think China is too powerful and ornery to listen to the world on its human rights violation we should also know that no nation is independent of the world. So, I think China can't segregate itself from the world or else will witness an economic chaos. It shouldn't think resources from Africa are enough to keep its economy going. If you think dialogue won't work, Passthedutchie, you can subscribe to a pri
  16. No! I think girls are most shy when it comes to this act of metabolism.
  17. I am not in the support for Beijing boycott. It would be nice the IOC let the BOCOG knows that human rights is an important parts of the deal and China must adhere to it. For me, boycotting the games will make things more complicated. So, I would advocate for dialogue.
  18. If you know that you don't use a public loo when the situation is so tight then you can poo on your panties and, I guess that would be a better alternative.
  19. I got it right, Sir. Why would they have to ask for what they are purposed about? To me this is like preaching to the public to have a hand in it when things aren't going the right direction. Or would you like to correct me on that?
  20. HELP US WIN GOLD FOR A SUSTAINABLE GAMES http://www.glasgow2014.com/Media-Centre/Ne...NABLE+GAMES.htm There's one thing I don't get right here. Why is Glasgow asking for help to create a sustainable games when it won on among such in it presentation? "However these are the minimum standards we are committed to – what we want to see now is the public getting really involved, giving us their ideas, and connecting with the potential of the Games". Are volunteers not fort coming in? Am watching, don't think am not!
  21. I think the watercube lacks the sit-down toilets the most after its elegant look. The quality of the ceramic has to be taken into proper consideration cos as one person said here lots of Chinese aren't too sure about the throne, and end up standing on rims and squatting over the bowl anyway, if that is actually true of the Chinese people.
  22. I never said under the rule either! You really know what independence means, don't you?
  23. The exiled spiritual leader said Tibetans needed to live side-by-side with Chinese people and reaffirmed that independence was "out of the question". Dalai Lama urges end to violence http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7302654.stm
  24. That's one thing OIC should be thinking by now. China must go by the agreement it made with IOC, if not, there's going to be a big problem for this upcoming events.
