China still cool?

The title is a Simpsons reference. China is not cool and I am disturbed that the Olympics are there. For a number of reasons.

1) the heinous level of pollution...should ANY athletes have to be exposed to that?

2) China has become a massive world power by exploiting and mistreating its own people.

3) China is willing to support world regimes that treat their people even WORSE.

4) China owns most of the US debt...in other words, we are indebted to China. This is frightening.

5) they eat dog...not really anymore, but I tried to put something slightly humorous 'cause there is nothing funny about China.
