Beijing Olympics

Above is a Peter Brookes Cartoon from today's Times giving a new interpretation on the carrying of the Olympic flame.

China seems to be adopting the classic tactic of the dictatorship- cover up anything, deny all press access and then nothing can be proved. Unfortunately for the hosts of the Olympics technology has moved on a bit and a total cover up is now largely impossible.

The attached link below is presented by the Free Tibet Campaign as evidence of Chinese attrocities in the form of a recent violent crackdown on Tibetans. Clearly from these pictures deadly force has been used.

The link comes with a big health warning that it is hugely graphic and potentially very distressing. Do not click on it unless you are prepared to see pictures of shooting victims. (PLEASE DO NOT CLICK IF WITH ANYONE OF A SENSITIVE DISPOSITION)
