Some of you may have already received this in yer email (how the Beijing Olympic Logo was created) but lest we forget from all the smirking & laughter, this does represent the horrible truth of modern day China. In spite of the incredible economic growth that threatens to dwarf even the American's; them bad old draconian commie habits die hard.
We have laughed at fooking silly Malaysians clutching at straws when they proclaim incredible pride at our recent sojourn into space. Similarly, I have heard many Chinese locals say how fab it is that China finally gets to host a global sporting event. "This will show the world the ability of the Chinese people", "This coming Olympics is an event for all Chinese people to be proud of"etc etc.
What they forget to mention is that the Chinese authorities are also murdering bastards who got away with Tianamen Square & thousands of other atrocities since. Its easy to turn a blind eye when everyone's busy counting the mullah eh . . .?
PS: TQ Kevo fer another gem.
