China should be stripped of all these events as punishment for unleashing Covid on the planet

International visitors will no doubt be flocking to China for them...

Agree with awomde.

China deviate the world economy. Nations that followed China's WHO advice are paying dearly. Countries shouldn't even be sending their athletes to these events.

I suspect there will be a lot less enthusiasm about visiting mainland China, seeing that the atrocities of the CCP are finally getting some international attention now.

I'd still visit. I love China. It's an amazing country, with so much good food, and beautiful scenery.

That said, after some of the stuff I've said about China on here, and their notoriety for hacking, and how poorly built this website is, I have to consider that there's a good chance the Chinese government has some IP addresses I've posted from. It makes me nervous about ever trying to enter the country again. I'd like to think that I'm too small to matter to the Chinese government, but I'd hate to find out the wrong way that I'm not.

Lolol... I was already disinterested in Tokyo hosting games, due to the government response to 3/11.

China hosting anything? Lolol... But don't let them know we feel this way until after they've pissed away millions for infrastructure and PR.

“Authoritarian states have no need to ask the populace, they have no need to compromise on policy, there is no political opposition (by definition) and most delivery services are state-run, ensuring the smooth running of the event,“ Grix added..."

Arguably, this could refer to Japan, too and if China should be "punished" for "hosting" Covid 19, then perhaps Japan should also be reprimanded for delaying action (testing, etc) prior to the IOC postponing the Olympics?
