What does that have to do with anything? The US not doing something doesn't mean the Chinese get a pass on something else.
So you're... what? Proposing that every single poor person must be taken care of by the government before production can start on a single upscale retail establishment?Exactly. They spent so much money on frivolous things like making the parks greener and putting up Rolex stores for the summer instead of using money to help their poor. That's something worthy of complaining about.
Almost all western press seems to against China so I don't trust them sometimes. I have not problem with China's internal disputes - Tibet and other Islamic (every country has these issues), but some of things like freedom of speech/journalism are obviously wrong.Have any of you been to China? Try to read news from more spread out sources.

What exactly does one have to do with the other?
Take your time and read that a few times.I just watched a spot on NBC news showing how the Chines authorities have taken water from a province near Beijing so that they can green up the city for the Olympics, run fountains, etc. The narrator said that the aquifer under the city is dropping at 20 feet/year due to heavy water usage and the booming population. I don't think I'll bother watching any of the Olympic events - the sight of those poor farmers who were denied irrigation water was pretty discouraging. Rice fields turned to dusty hard-pan..... I'd love to send them some of mine.
