That's the question of the day.

As much as it bothers me to deny some athletes the opportunity to represent their nation. Just as Russia/Eastern Bloc and Americas boycotted each others olympics in the 80s; we must take a stand. I know the issues are difficult, but there must be consequences, it's just been a one way slaughter.

The amount of abuse and power growth of China has been the most unchecked and rewarded in history. From the betrayal in Hong Kong, to concentration camps in China oppressing Muslims, to threats to Taiwan to the absolute silence of the world to demand the facts about the Wuhan Virus, Western leaders have been weak and subservient.

This is the one stand we can get right. The CCP do NOT want to lose face. This gift is a reminder to them, like Stalin to his own citizens : "we can do what they want and they will come crawling with their beaks to get the seeds we throw them".

Joe the ho will never boycott. They'll probably give Hunter a concession stand and the phony doctor can run a hospitality tent. Whatever it is, you know Joe and his crime family will make plenty of money.

The Olympics should be free of politics. Jimmy Carter is a great guy but he was wrong to make them so.

Do you know how much the 2008 Beijing Olympics were politicized?

These olympics are always polticized by nations who want to convince the world, "see, look how clean, friendly and civilized we are". It is all for optics. The CCP do care what the world thinks of them, even as they slap the West around. President Xi will use this to reinforce his power,

Irrelevant. I stated what I thought, not what others did.

"Should" is the operative word. The world should be free and fair too.

hahhaha--you did not learn from history --because you do not know it

also:
'''''In addition to the boycott, Carter increased pressure on the Soviets to abandon the war in Afghanistan by issuing a trade embargo on two U.S. goods that the country desperately needed: grain and information technology. He also restricted Soviet fishing in American-controlled ocean waters. Carter called on the U.N. to provide military equipment, food and other assistance to help Afghanistan’s neighbors (especially Iran and Pakistan) fend off further Soviet encroachment.'''''

Not just during the olympics, but long after. It will draw massive attention to the issues if America doesn't go. If America didn't go, neither will the UK and probably 3-6 others.

When America doesn't go, it will draw attention and hurt China globally as citizens ask qustions, from Africa to Muslims in the M.E

...it might be a drop in the bucket--that's it
.....also--MORE history:
after the Munich massacre--the games went on--and the dead were really not remembered

!!!!!!! Olympians were murdered and not much happened to the Palestinians--they were really never scorned/shunned/condemned to the point that had an effect/etc

It's really sad that some people (you) have to allow politics to run every aspect of their lives.

Who knows what these assholes will do? For all we know, they're working on the next virus to infect the world with. Keep those commies away from me. I'd rather go to Vegas. And speaking of Vegas, we should do something to keep those dirty, overbreeding commies out of there too.
