      Just how is a country that treats it’s people like slaves and murders them everyday going to convince anybody they have the peoples best interests at hand? I’d like to see the over fishing of the oceans stop or the cutting down of rain forests , they say just cutting down those enormous trees could release enough co2 to effect climate change . Those ass wipes murdered 25k just to build their olympic facilities by throwing them out of their homes and letting them live on the streets . fuck you china!!!
