Rita, agreed. Targeting their goods, which in some cases are a result of the human rights abuses, would do a lot more than boycotting the Olympics. Unfortunately, boycotting the Olympics hurts the athletes more than anyone else. These people work their whole lives, many who will only get one opportunity, and politics gets in the way.

Actually, as for Germany, note that it states that Germany is rejecting calls from the US to boycott. That article also mentioned that a resolution was introduced in the House calling for a boycott. Hopefully, for the sake of the American athletes, that resolution doesn't go very far.
