I say yes. Chinese human rights issues far out weigh any complaint of athletes missing out. Of course, athletes want their five minutes of fame–but what about the Tibetan people who have been fighting for decades? This may be the last chance to save their entire CULTURE!

But who cares, right?

No one listened to the Monks in Burma who are languishing still even now, forgotten after a brief outcry back in October. Now the focus shifts to Tibet, but for how long? Until the games are over? Until the Chinese crack and crush the protests and all goes quiet, again?

I don’t blame the Chinese people, but the government.

They’re doing to the people what they did to those poor diseased cats… out of sight, out of mind.

A prayer for Tibet:
