Ladies and gentlemen, your Olympic host country!

The AP is reporting that the reaction of the Chinese government to a demonstration a southern Chinese town was to shoot the demonstrators, seal the town, search for the organizers of the demonstration and deny to the rest of the world that anything was going on.

And these folks are the ones who get to host the Olympics in 2008. Even if you don’t like the Olympics yourself (I’m not real keen on them myself) I think we can agree that it is viewed as an honour by most people in the world. And the Chinese governement is one that is of the least deserving.

Anyway, enough of my talking. A picture is worth a thousand words. (Credit for the image is to “Andre from”.”
