BEIJING - China might bar live television broadcasts from Tiananmen Square during the Beijing Olympics, apparently unnerved by the recent outburst of unrest among Tibetans and fearful of protests in the heart of the Chinese capital.
A ban on live broadcasts would wreck the plans of NBC and other major international networks, who have paid hundreds of millions of dollars to broadcast the Aug. 8-24 games and are counting on eye-pleasing live shots from the iconic square.
I had a great buddy who got shut out of the 1980 games - remember them - when someone else was beating up Islamic asshats before we were? He accepted it, even after about 15 years of dedicated training.
We should shut them down.
The Chinese Communist despots are ambitiously working to take over the world. They are working to destroy the American economy. They are stealing every piece of industrial intellectual property they can get their hands on. They are murdering Falun Gong and harvesting their organs.
And they expect us to sit on our hands, while WE pay for them to glorify their morally bankrupt regime that sets fire to monks and runs tanks over students? Puhleeze.
Pull out now. I know it's not manly, but shut off all contact with them. Let them go back to the days of being the hidden empire. Let them eat rice. Stop paying for the poisoned product they dump on us. Leave their crappy 2000 dollar cars to rot on docks in Shanghai.
Retarget the nukes.
