Asian protests at Olympic start

Aug 8 - Protesters take to the streets across Asia, coinciding with the opening of the Beijing Olympics, pressing China on the human rights issue.
Yahoo "News" just posted 180 pictures of the Opening Ceremonies. There is not one photo of the American team and it's flag bearer! They show all the Western European countries and their flag bearers, and dozens of others but NO AMERICA! The media's capitulation to lowering its ethics is yet another example of the absence of any actual NEWS coverage available in the United States today. If you don't believe it, look for a photo of the American team entering the stadium or a story about the athletes disbarred from participation due to politics. Look for the reasons behnd apologies for wearing masks in a city of pure pollution. Good luck looking and what does that mean for all of us?
The only real hope is that we come to our senses before the damage is irreversible. There's still time to clean up the environment and we need to start YESTERDAY. An international effort to clean up the planet would lead to new views on what is possible. Inevitably, the result would be new styles of governance and the realization of progress for our ever-changing and evolutionary form of government.
Lots to think about. Thanks for reading.
Those trying to use sport events and esspecialy Olimpic Games for individual political purposes must not exist in our world. They mst be physicaly eliminated from our planet.

Try to be more optimistic! Maybe Europe is more welcome then America, but we started well this Olympiad with the invitation for the unity and also for the honesty. It is difficult to understand that we have only one Terra. But little by little, and this Olympiad is a little more than a little we are going toward peace.
And we must defend this little peace and not allow countries involved in war to participate at Olympiad. It is a general outrage !!! We must propose to be eliminated Russia and Georgia who are fighting now.
We must be tolerant about some things but not about the breaking of the best benefit of Olympic Games.
Go home Georgians and Russians if you don't have respect about Olympic traditions. We, the rest of the world, we want to enjoy the Olympic Peace.
