I understand your point, but what other government would issue passports to any player from China? The government that wants our athletes to compete issues their passports, right?
Although I've loving every minute of the Olympics, I still have this feeling that the Chinese government is concealing the "real" China from the rest of the world.
I've seen photos of the things China doesn't want you to see. However, they are no worse than photos of things I have seen in various major cities in the U.S. They are surprising, though.
Almost everything that the world will see from China during these olympics is a facade. It's just like their magicians. Gene Anderson told me that he spent some time talking to one of the Chinese manipulators. She knew nothing about magic, other than what she did during her act.
