Das ist alles fur 2008 Beijing Olympics

The 2008 Beijing Olympics have completed all events. The Redeeem Team beat Spain for mthe gold. The closing ceremony has been televised to the world. TV sports commentators have called the games a success for China. The facilities, the presentations, and its # 1 placement in gold medals have shown that the Celestial Kingdom has finally reclaimed its place among the great nations of the world.

China is China once more and the little emperors are heirs to the fortune of the world’s most dynamic economy. Foreign politicians are concerned that the progress comes at the expense of freedom, however feed the stomachs and the mind will follow the Politburo’s brainwashing.

China is great.

12 years ago I was in Dali, Yunnan. Three ex-Red Guards extolled the re-emergence of China.

“You westerners fear the power of China.”

“No, we fear your chaos.” Chinese love order more than anything, knowing even 50 million crazy Chinese can cause havoc and the Chinese leaders countenanced no displays of dissent during the Games. The NBC TV commentators never mentioned Tibet. No one said anything about the imprisoned victims of the 2008 earthquake or the legions of Falun Gong supporters in the state-run gulags. They wouldn’t segue with SUV commercials.

I watched very little of the Olympics.

Synchronized swimming and little else.

I love those girls’ frozen smiles.

Now Beijing can go back to normal.

Bring on the smog.
