Journey of Harm arrived yesterday

Journey of Harm

... and had a relay today. Welcome the Olympic torch. According to officials and the police, it was quite successful with only 7 people were arrested.

Here are some interesting parts:
Chinese marshals coordinated the pro-China crowds and they outnumbered the Tibet protesters.

And what do those taxpayer funded and trained with taxpayer's money AFP (Australian Federal Police) do? They were keen to use as much as unnecessary power given by the society with trust, but ashamed to get identified.

no name tag police again

no name tag police again

Please note that those AFP were not wearing their name tags. Recall from last year's APEC in Sydney, after public outraged NSW Police not wearing name tags, NSW Police Minister David Campbell promised that police will be wearing name tags in the future. Well, AFP is not part of NSW. (see this blog entry)

Also, the Olympic was surrounded by police? Shame on you AFP.

The flight that carries 2008 Olympic torch has a line "Journey of Harmony". However when the hatch opens, it becomes something quite different. This is a great example for arrogant native English speakers to make fun on non-English speakers, particularly on Asians (they don't make jokes on Europeans). Engrish.com has plenty examples. Speaking about the racist Engrish.com, if you examine the photos carefully, it is not hard to find photos showing no spelling errors or grammatic errors.

On your "naughty Police" bike again, Ant?
Then your usual whites are anti-Asian rant.
To the best of my extensive knowledge,Europeans with poor English speaking skills,have been the brunt of jokes since immigration to English speaking countries began.
We have a saying in the remote village, "get your facts straight or remain silent".

Please refer to the arrogant native English speaker's beloved Engrish.com for thousands of examples on targeting Asians' not perfect English.

There is no such thing as the "arrogant native English speakers beloved Engrish.com", per se.
It was established by a person who had spent a number of years living in Japan (like me)pointing out how commercial Japan has problems with getting names for products etc due to their limited scripts for writing new product names in a tough marketing environment.
The site does not make malicious attacks on any nationality and was designed for "fun only". Poor English which helps in communication between people for establishing friendship and citizenship is not under attack here.
There are other sites that pillory English speakers pathetic use of their own tongue.
Lighten up, or the lemote village peopre will be offended.

If you had bothered to read anything about that site, its purpose is far from what you suggest.
