The China card

So much for engaging the "sleeping giant"...

When the last gold medal has been awarded and the athletes have left, this network of informers – along with an estimated 300,000 surveillance cameras and a strengthened security apparatus – will remain as perhaps the biggest legacy of the historic Beijing Olympics.

So far, it seems clear that the Beijing Olympics have led to a deterioration of human rights and freedom in China.
