If I had George Bush‘s job, I would join Nicholas Sarkozy in threatening not to attend Beijing Olympics’ opening ceremony unless China agrees to (a) talk with the Dalai Lama, (b) free political prisoners and (c) put an end to an alleged brainwashing campaign for Tibetans “in an effort to end nearly a month of unrest.” Bush is far too mushy and committed to status quo cash flow to take such a stand, but I genuinely respect Sarkozy for standing up. I didn’t think he had it in him.
