So much for China embracing the Olympic spirit

When China was awarded the 2008 Olympics, there were many in the West who argued that this would focus the world's attention on China and encourage the regime to improve its human rights record. That argument is looking increasingly threadbare. The spotlight certainly is on China right now, but the only thing it's highlighting is the fact that China has no intention of changing its ways. I thought the Olympic spirit was all about peace, fair play and the brotherhood of man. What a farce!
