The Chinese must be pissed. Why? Well they spend a fortune to put on what most will agree was a magnificent opening ceremony and just as the parade of nations started, word came that the Russians were on the verge of declaring war on Georgia. Talk about stealing headlines. Of course, they have their own problems at home. Apparently an American was killed and another wounded for no apparent reason by a Chinese attacker who then went on to commit suicide.
