This could make China go ballistic

Update to our discussion about whether the Chinese gymnasts are really 16, as the rules require: International Olympic Committee launches probe into He Kexin’s age. Can you imagine China’s response if the committee strips those little girls of their medals? The loss of face? The spoiling of their nearly-perfect and self-esteem boosting Olympics? The emotionalism and defensiveness from their wounded pride could make Russia’s recent sabre-rattling seem inconsequential.

    Those were also my thoughts and concerns when I read that report. We in the West are little aware of what it means in Asia to lose face.

    Yes, but if they’re deliberately flouting the rules, they need to lose face–and if someone can look at them without asking the question, I dare suggest they’ve never been around real little girls. It’s too darned obvious that something is way different here.

    I have noticed, when dealing with my husband especially, that I am never more defensive than when I know I have done wrong.

    I thought it was the DNC which made them go ballistic, by selling them the plans to the Trident ICBM and MIRV warhead system in exchange for campaign contributions for Clinton’s previous run?
