Calls Mount for Olympic Ceremony Boycott.

PARIS (AP) - Moves to punish China over its handling of violence in Tibet gained momentum Tuesday, with a novel suggestion for a mini-boycott of the Beijing Olympics by VIPs at the opening ceremony.

Such a protest by world leaders would be a huge slap in the face for China's Communist leadership.

I keep wanting to make some Richard Gere joke over all of this. But, nothing about it is funny and even I don't have that poor of taste. It is all very sad and I hope something can be done.
I don't even understand why China is doing this, is it some kind of pride thing? Are there resources in Tibet that I don't know about?
