The article is obviously very biased. There is no support, except for that hidden in sarcasm, for why China would be a good place to hold the Olympics. It seems that this article is really more about shock-value that providing a balanced argument. It throws out harsh one-liners about the alleged atrocities occurring in China that should take away its hosting rights. I am not convinced that many of these accusations are even valid on that large of a scale, because there is really no statistical information or reliable sources presented. The vicious language is what brings out the author's one-sided claim and really demonstrates his own opinion.
