Bravery and Elegance

"So well planned. So well thought out." - CBS News

"A stunningly bold protest for the world to see." - CBS News

"Tremendous amount of skill. Obviously it's a dangerous operation." - Golden Gate Bridge Manager

"Oh, this is unbelievable! I just can't believe this!" - Tourist from Indiana

"We are in solidarity with the Tibetan people." - Laurel Sutherlin, one of the three heroes

Thank you, Laurel Sutherlin, Duane Martinez, and Hannah Strange. We are with you. We are with the Tibetan people. China is at odds with the rest of the world for its oppression of the peaceful Tibetan people for nearly 60 years. Time to come clean, China!

So you are into this so called human rights hypocrisy???

I think China has every rights to protect Tibet from disintegrating. It's China's part. All these fools hippies who go about causing violence in a peaceful ceremony like Olympic Torch - are drug addicts, rejected shit from society. They should know that they are hurting sportsmen's spirit.
Stop talking about Free Tibet shit, it's all American puppet mechanism infused into junkies like you.

So you are one of those Chinese thugs that Lord Coe, the head of London's 2012 Games described as "horrible", "the burly henchmen who barged their way through the capital, shoving the public and even police out of the way."

Funny it's not those protestor heroes that you called "drug addicts, rejected sh*t from society" that the Konnie Huq, one of the torchbearers was complaining about, it's YOU!

Miss Huq, one of 80 torchbearers said: "The men in blue perplexed everyone. Nobody seemed to know who they were officially or what their title was. They were very robotic, very full on, and I noticed them having skirmishes with our own police and the Olympic authorities before our leg of the relay, which was confusing.

"They were barking orders at me, like 'Run! Stop!' and I was like, 'Oh my gosh, who are these people?'

"They kept pushing my hand up higher when I was holding the torch, so they were...interesting."

Your CCTV can spin all they want, you are just a laughing stalk.

Stop being an International laughing stalk. Respect human rights, help Tibetans, and watch your language when you talk to a lady.

Ha Ha Ha, little boy, move down to "blogdai's election primer," read it, read the comments and try again. Do try to keep up, or please go somewhere else. I don't know how to express this any more diplomatically. We maintain a higher level of discourse here, when possible. We've got no time to get your remedial understandings up to speed.

"American puppet mechanisms?" You mean like press freedom, and self-determination? What about the right to peaceful dissent? Hmm, you seem to be forgetting that these "mechanisms" are allowing you to sit behind some computer and spout your narrow-minded tripe. Try starting any kind of Tibetan discussion at a Beijing coffee house and see who shows up. It won't be "hippies" I can tell you right now, and they won't be in any mood to let you voice your opinion either.

San Francisco police marveled at the "high level of skill and planning" it took to hang those banners, 150 in the air, scaling steel cables and in a high wind. Not bad for "drug addicts" and "rejected shit" eh Mr. social order know-it-all?

Thank you for bringing up a good point that I couldn't agree more.

I think those who scaled San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge to unfurl the banners "One World. One Dream" and "Free Tibet" should get their Olympic Gold medals for true sportsmanship.

I read that Duane Martinez rappelled from the Great Wall of China to unfurl a 450 square-foot banner reading "One World, One Dream, Free Tibet 2008" and Laurel Sutherlin had unfurled a similar message atop Mt. Everest.

Exactly, not bad for drug addicts. Would this public announcement effectively recruit more drug users than any drug pushers can? "This is your body. This is drugs. This is your body on drugs (showing those with toned bodies climbing steel cables and hiking in Mt. Everest and Great Walls). Any questions?"
