Success or Failure: Beijing Winter Olympics Is Bad News for the World 

Fourteen years ago, China conducted the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. The games were a success, and the biggest beneficiary was Xi Jinping. He was Vice President of China and competing for the presidency with present Premier Li Keqiang. The successful Chinese Olympics debut encouraged and emboldened Xi in grabbing power. He had just learned to master the art of seizing the moment.

If successful conduct of Summer Olympics in 2008 got Xi Jinping top job, failure of 2022 Winter Olympics could take it away. If the 2008 Olympics emboldened Chinese strongman to grab power, the 2022 Olympics is his tool to consolidate his power and be ‘Dictator for Life.’

20th CCP National Congress is around the corner. Every success takes him closer to another term. Xi Jinping succeeds or fails, both ways, he will be a threat to the world.

  1. It’s not just the weather here that’s sending a shiver down my spine, Commander and friend. I’m going to drink a nice cup of Darjeelng chai masala to warm up, after reading this post.

      1. I enjoyed every sip, dear Commander and friend. 😊Although I’m still concerned about our willingness to wake up and respond, it’s getting a bit milder here, so I’m still hopeful.

      2. The media here in the US is treating this situation in Ukraine like a ticking time-bomb. Like it could be WWIV. I’m glad the Ukrainian president is consistently low-key, so far.

      3. Hoping you’re right, Commander and friend! Could he be trying to get “Back in the USSR”? (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.) Serious question, actually.
