Olympic Flame Blame Game

China, the US and the Olympic Committee are finally catching up with how the rest of the world feels about China's human rights record. You'd think the Olympic Committee would have seen such problems coming, what with China's propensity to neutralize/put to death people they find inconvenient.

If only the Olympic torch protesters were to admit to themselves that China's human rights abuses don't begin and end with censorship, but with many of the products the protesters themselves purchase daily from the local Mal-Wart. Maybe consumers should protest the manufacturers that support Chinese production and by extension, their long standing and growing habit of labor abuses.
