In general I agree that sports are apolitical, but in the case of the Olympics politics is everything. China was on the map economically and strategically before getting the summer games, but the Olympics has really put them on the international political map--big time. And I think that's a good thing!
Did you happen to notice all of the international political leaders in the stands for the opening ceremony?
Don't believe everything you think
