Boycott Beijing games

I propose that the U.S. boycott the 2008 Olympics in China until that nation stops supporting the Sudanese genocide in Darfur. China invests heavily in Sudan's oil industry, including building a crude oil pipeline to the Red Sea 1,000 miles away. China also supplies arms to the Sudanese government and says it will veto any U.N. assistance to the African tribes who are being driven from their land in the oil-rich Darfur region.

The U.S. cannot support this immoral position. No Olympics in 2008.
