Boycott China's Games for China, Not Burma

Countries should tell China to pressure Burma to open up. Countries should also boycott the Beijing Olympics. But these two actions shouldn't be mixed together.

It's a fantasy to expect the regime that produced the Tiananmen Massacre to stop its Burmese friends from killing protesters.

Countries should boycott the Beijing Olympics. They should do so not because of what has been unfolding in Rangoon or in Darfur, but for what has been happening in China itself. The Chinese Communist Party should never have been awarded the Olympics in the first place.

Berlin 1936, not Seoul 1988, is going to be repeating itself.
