Temporary Fury

Okay. So it's being shown that thousands of people are willing to line the streets, and attempt to extinguish the Olympic Torch as a way of making their displeasure with China known. And this is becoming somewhat of an embarrassment to China. These things are all fine and good, I suppose. But when it's all said and done, and the Olympics are over, and the Chinese no longer feel the need to burnish their international image - where will these people be then? Will the events of Tibet fade into Ancient History (even in the face of a retaliatory crackdown), like the World Trade Organization or the Genocide in Darfur?
