If Tokyo has to cancel the olympics while Beijing gets to have theirs there will be huge outrage!

Whether the virus comes under control or not, Beijing should be stripped of the Olympics as a punishment for the economic havoc the CCP and their virus have created.

If we punish the CCP for being where the virus started, how do we punish the US for being where the virus has thrived and been fostered?

You're opening up a big can of worms with your calls for punishment for being victims of a virus.

Beijing should have the games pulled or boycotted because of their behaving HK, the South China Sea, East China Sea and Taiwan.

they are free-riders in the West and it’s time for that ride to come to an end.

Tokyo will go ahead but it is likely the Beijing winterlandschap will be boycotted by the USA and an important number of other countries but even if IOC pulls the Games emperor Xi will organize alternative games to save face. China and North Korea will compete in those.

If the postponed Tokyo Olympics do not go ahead next year due to COVID-19 then the 2022 Beijing Winter Games will likely also fall victim to the pandemic, said long-time International Olympic Committee member Dick Pound.

Yeah, they see the writing on the wall.
