While the Olympic torch was being run through Canberra I was otherwise involved in ANZAC Day prep and planning so had little chance to blog on the issue. I thought, given a couple of days the media would be investigating how come so many pro-Chinese Chinese arrived at Canberra in such an organized fashion. It was almost as if the Red Army had provided the convoy to move the troops. No one has followed it up so I'll say it. The move of the Chinese students was too slick to have been organized by a bunch of youths. Someone stepped in and organized and paid for the coaches from other cities and considering that the only organization that`stood to benefit is the Chinese government then it is a reasonable deduction that they planned the event. If this is true then we should all feel very indignant that a foreign power is moving 'troops' around Australia for their political gain. I certainly do. The saga of the Red Chinese
Guards torch minders being allowed on the streets to run with the torch and 'protect' it descended into chaos when the government backed down and left the matter to the poor AFP individual who we all witnessed on TV trying to muscle the Chinese away from the torch carrier.
It struck me as undignified and the world witnessed Australia abrogating it's sovereignty to the Chinese.
Not happy, Kevin.
