I hope it negatively affects the Olympics and I think people should boycott all Chinese goods and products to send out a strong message to Beijing.

I think it will have both negative and positive effects. China and Tibet have a complicated history, and I’m not sure I know enough about it give an informed opinion on what should happen.

I think Beijing is strong enough and capable enough to handle any threats. In the end, I don’t think there will be any strong or negative affects from the protests on the Olympics.

Tibet has been under the radar for a long time now, and China has been given a pretty free rein. I hope the protests affect the Olympics, at least by putting pressure on Beijing.

I don’t think there will be countries or athletes that boycott the Games. It may be too early for it to have a big impact. I think it will just amount to bad PR for China.

I think the Tibet issue should have a negative effect on the Olympics in China. I doubt that China can appreciate the real meaning of the Olympics with such a position on Tibet.
