Protests broke out in London leading to at least 30 arrests as protesters tried to stop the Olympic torch relay in an effort to show protest to human rights abuses by the Chinese government in Tibet.

Like I said, the Olympics this year is going to be a mess. The IOC were out of their mind giving the Olympics to an undemocratic regime with a horrific human rights record.

Aw c'mon OBF, if we get involved and do something we're evil Empire builders. If we don't do anything we're evil heartless bastards. Don't you get it yet? If GW supports it, it's evil, if he doesn't he's evil!
