Boycotting French products or KFC is as mistargetted a gesture as have been the disruptions of the torch relay.There are other ways. A little more balanced aproach from both sides could go a long way and any of such approaches need not to be any less firm.It strikes me how self-absorbed the understandings China and the so-called West have of each other, particularly in regards to forms in which to affect change on each other's actions.I simply cannot understand how not having chosen Beijing for the now termed "death olympics" would motivate China to achieve a quicker solution. Likewise, the recent wave of Chinese anti-west boycott will just serve to add more fuel to the fire of misconceptions over China of the West. There is a blatant communication problem that now worsens every day and needs to be addressed as soon as possible, by all means necessary.
