Should the U.S. be banned from The Olympics?
Let's criticize the US war criminals first, whose horrific crimes dwarf those of the Chinese. After we assign blame and punish the criminals responsible for Iraq, the Vietnam War, countless US atrocities in South and Central America etc., we can discuss wrongdoing by the Chinese government, which pales in comparison.

Maybe the U.S. should be banned from the Olympics for War Crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan?

1. yes.
We have lost any moral authority to criticize any other country for their crimes against humanity.

2. Not sure if we should be banned, but
there should certainly be protests against us when we land in Beijing. Unless a democrat in November changes our foreign policy we shouldn't be awarded the Chicago olympics in 2016.

Precisely.
America is more, and better, than our current government, and should not be silent on these matters.

8. If you go by human rights as reasons to ban a country from participating,
say good bye to Cuba, most (if not all) of Africa, any country with an Islamic government, the communist-led countries in Asia, a good portion of former-Soviet republics and some of Central and South America. Hell, say goodbye to Australia for their past offenses, Ireland and Great Britian for the whole IRA back and forth, etc.

Might as well cancel the Olympics altogether because using just the last few years as elimination criteria you'd probably lose about 2/3 of the participating countries.

So do you think the United States was a picnic for Black people before Reconstruction?

And how about the period following Reconstruction?

Come to think about, how about today?

It's hardly a picnic yet for most Black people!

The US has some black spots on its history but to even try to make us equivalent to Russia or China shows a shocking ignorance of history.

30. Ha! That's a good one. Mao alone is responsible for 50 million.
Stalin is responsible for at least 20 million. The two of them have probably in the neighborhood of 10-20 million flat-out executed for political offenses. Add up the rest of the world outside of Nazi Germany and you don't get that.

The US government has its fair share of blood, but it pales in comparison to Communist China.

40. Stalin's 20 million is pretty widely accepted adding the famine and the purges together
Edited on Wed Apr-09-08 06:06 PM by Zynx
along with those who died in the labor camps. 1 million is for those actually executed. I took a course where we studied the Great Leap Forward and its effects. 50 million is not an absurd guess. 20 million is conservative for Mao and that relates to just the Great Leap Forward. His political executions are extremely numerous over the years.

53. Anti-communists tend to exaggerate the numbers.
Adding in famines and stuff like that just inflates the numbers.

I'm not saying that these guys weren't murderers.

I tend to be skeptical of the sources and their agenda.

37. Not even close
It's really not the point to compare numbers if we take the history of the US and China over the last 500 years the numbers tilt tremendously towards the US as the greatest purveyor of violence in the world.

Now if we want to be a bit more recent with our history and use say just the last 40 years the US death toll easily exceeds the rest of the world combined.

Now lets keep in mind the many dozen "internecine-civil conflicts" that are funded, fueled and armed by the US.

This is not debatable the history is in plain sight.

In any case the greater point in this instance is not only the blatant hypocrisy by the US at even hinting towards a boycott but also the terrible fawning that is currently occuring by the so-called "progressive" comunity over Tibet when we hear nothing about Somalia, The Congo, Haiti- to name a few- which make Tibet look like a walk in the park.

You might also look into the role the NED plays in the "Free Tibet" movement as it's quite relevant.

Just consider for a moment that Bush, Limbaugh, The State Department and other far right elements are pushing this Free Tibet and demonization of China.

Does that not give you pause at the least?

42. Talk about wrong numbers
your sig line it the spawn of a survey lacking stratification and where n = 1500 out of a population of 26 million. Just dont push that on anyone who had to sit through a college level statistics course.

China and russia have killed tens of millions. In the last 40 years wars you are wrong. War in DPRC killed many more than the US has.

I dont think you understand how cheap life is in some parts of the world.

Communist China is an oppressor nation. It is the height of ignorance to turn against a cause because the current administration endorses it.

Next people will be advocating ignoring aids in africa.

You have nothing to support the US as the "greatest purveyor of violence" position. The US payed in blood twice to stop European megadeath.

He has been one of the greatest China coddlers in our history. I think that gives me more pause.

Also, I do not subscribe to the "my enemy's enemy is my friend" crap.

Killed because of China's one baby policy and senseless gender discrimination. Now a demographic time bomb as whole cities of poor men, unable to find brides, spring up. 30 million men who have no prospects for love, family or happiness.

What do you call all of these anti-war protests? By your measure we should shut up until things in the US are solved. So, by your measure the people who showed up today in SF to protest should be doing what for an hour?
You talk about China, US and such like they're different things. To me, they're all the same. Bad is bad.

The US is driving this movement to boycott.

Also who is most actively involved in war crimes all around the world?

The answer is easy and self-evident.

Of course the UK and Canada and Australia, to name a few should be banned if we are to be consistent.

Quite familiar with much of the history of China. Thanks.

Please point to one post where I defended China.

Please re-read every single one of my posts on this and then accept and admit that nowhere have I or would I defend China. That is not what is being discussed in fact I have not seen a single post from anyone defending China though they may be out there.

Your post is completely off-base.

Do you not see the hypocrisy?

Are you familiar with The National Endowment for Democracy?

61. Not Just The Olympics
The US should of course be banned from the Olympics.

The Olympics are where the civilized nations of the world get together to compete.

The US has shown, by its unconscienable actions in Iraq and elsehwere, that it is outside the norms of civilized nations.

But the US should also lose its seat on the UN Security Council.

The US should lose its vote in the UN General Assembly.

The US should be kicked out of NATO.

All decent nations should immediately sever their diplomatic ties with Washington.

Washington is in the grips of a rogue regime that lies and wages murderous wars of occupation. It is a pariah.

And it should be treated as such.
