What did they think was going to happen when they picked China for the Olympics?

April 10th, 2008

From the New York Times:

The president of the International Olympic Committee, cialis generic tadalafil Jacques Rogge, offered a rare criticism of the Chinese government on Thursday, calling on the authorities to respect its “moral engagement” to improve human rights and to provide the news media with greater access to the country ahead of the Beijing Games.

Mr. Rogge’s comments on China, made at a news conference here during which he described the protests that have dogged the torch relay as a “crisis” for the organization, were a departure from his previous statements that strenuously avoided any mention of politics.

The Chinese government immediately rejected Mr. Rogge’s remarks, saying they amounted to an unwelcome meddling in the country’s domestic affairs.

Hmmm, I bet the folks in Tibet would say the same thing about the Chinese government.
