Exit Spielberg, stage left

So Tongluren tries to pretend that everything is wonderful in Sudan!!!!!  That siswhy all the "bright" people who could have left the country. I know a Sudanese man who had his own newsppaer, until the government closed it down as it said things the government did not like. If you support evil, then you too are evil.  You seem to be racist gainst the west, why do you think it is that people from all over the world excape to the west. It is the place where human rights are upheld. It has its problems, but the world recognises it as being better than other places. You have the frog in the wlel mentality, why not travel and really find out the truth. Oh sorry I forgot you have to have money to pay a huge deposit to leave China, as they are afraifd you will not come back. Which country would you want to live in Sudan or the West?

Well stevepip ,

Now that we have got the niceties over and done with , let us get on to work . Sudan's tragedy is not China's doing and certainly not China's baby to console .  I would welcome your opinion on this because it reflects on Spielberg's action in resigning from the Olympic directorship . So I will hold fire till you have had your say , OK ?

Speilberg is empty as an artist that could be the only explanation for him not carrying the ball for any aspect of the "Olympic Dream".  Heck I already thought of a few angles he could look at the Olympics.  The Black African athletes come to Beijing from some of the poorest parts of the World what is their impression of the organization of the Olympic events.  To be full of the Olympic spirit is to carry on the Olympic tide not bringing up a political obstacle to the Olympic events.

Time to grow up

Written from another Asian man's view, not Chinese (or Japanese!)

The posters here seem to have one recurring thread:

1) Spielberg was honored by the Govt when invited to support the Olympic games in Beijing.  
2) Spielberg then, for a personal reason (whether political or not) decided to step down from that role quite publicly.
3) Mass outrage and insults start flying in his direction because he drew unfair and unnecessary attention - ie politicizing the games themselves.

No it seems that you think he is an airhead, empty artistically, can't string a sentence together, a liar, and in some cases never to be trusted as a Jew.

We never heard of this when he was appointed.  Doesn't this just smell of revenge? It's like being back in elementary school.  He does something you don't like, so you call him all the names in the world, because after all you have to make him look worse than you are.  Not only that but if you simply concentrate on the personal attacks, then you can deflect away from the main issue i.e. the reason he decided to step down.  Enough, time to grow up and move on.

I see other posts here regurgitating history regarding the US/Reagan's role in Central America in the 1980's.  If you really want to go back to the playground, running up to the teacher and crying "He started it first!", then why are you surprised that objective readers are not willing to agree to your point.

There has been much written here on China's morally higher position. i.e. it doesn't invade other countries and takes a neutral view in international situations.   This against a backdrop of vitriol (much of it well deserved) on US foreign policy, support of corrupt regimes, regime change, and general militaristic attitudes.  I fully support China's efforts to protect its homeland, however in supporting foreign countries with corrupt regimes, militarily or financially, whether they be in Africa or Asia, how can posters here possibly think they can still maintain that higher ground. Pointing the finger at other countries and saying they did it first really is playground stuff.  Arguing that it is good for China (economically speaking) is trying to extend this issue of protectionism for the homeland - except that these events are being played out in countries other than China. The govt has to be responsible for its actions.  And the people here, surely must realize this.  Hiding behind your hands and shouting the loudest and longest doesn't change anything.

Holding yourself up to be moral and ethical example, and then doing the exact opposite reminds me of another country in the 1970's, 80's and this century - ironic really.

Just one thing though, the Olympics are certainly NOT the time or place to make this situation public.  If people want to protest they should find another way.

No offence meant to you, but you're also behaving like a kid in this playground.
Perhaps, the only difference between them (those people whom you accuse of childish ways) and you is that they are spitting out in an unpolished reactive manner, whilst you are pompous and slef-delusive (in that you think you are objective).
