US Olympic tourists warned about monitoring in hotels

Mar 21 03:49 PM US/Eastern

Americans traveling to China for the Olympic Games in August can expect their hotel rooms there to be monitored, the State Department warned on its website.

"All visitors should be aware that they have no reasonable expectation of privacy in public or private locations," according to the State Department site.

"All hotel rooms and offices are considered to be subject to on-site or remote technical monitoring at all times. Hotel rooms, residences and offices may be accessed at any time without the occupant's consent or knowledge," it said.

It added that many hotels and apartment buildings may be poorly built, lack emergency exits, fire extinguishers, carbon monoxide monitors and basic security like locks, alarms, and personnel.

It also said that the threat of terrorism appeared to be minimal, but urged caution nonetheless.

"The threat level for terrorism against Americans in China remains low. However, any large-scale public event like the upcoming Olympic Games could become the focus of terrorist acts or other forms of violence," it said.

"There is no reason to believe that US citizens are being targeted at this time," it said.

It also said crime rates were relatively low, with major metropolitan areas safer than similar sized cities in other developing countries.

But "while the overall crime threat is low, the number of criminal incidents, including those directed against Americans, continues to rise," it added.

The Olympic Summer Games will take place from August 8-24, followed by the Beijing Paralympic Summer Games 2008 from September 6-17.
With the great restaurants in Chinatown, here in NYC ...... WHY THE HELL WOULD I WANT TO GO TO CHINA ?!?!?!?!

They've confirmed that the housing for the Olympic athletes will be equipped with the standard Chinese "squat toilets"...



I dealt with these things when I was over on the slanty side of the Pacific back when I was a Navy lad. You feel like the bombardier of the Enola Gay when you're dropping a deuce in one of these contraptions.

Fuck China. They're a bunch of savages over there. They make some of the other savages in other parts of the world almost appear to be somewhat civilized.

EDIT: WTF is with that toilet? Jesus. BTW, the Enola Gay line made me chuckle. Nicely done, sir.

Seriously dude... that's the way those savages take a dump over there... squatting... like a fucking beast in the jungle. If you stay at a fancy, expensive hotel you might get a quality dumper like this...



If you stay in a cheap place... you'll basically be shitting into a hole in the floor...

You think that the Olympic teams might be bringing something like a Pavarotti adapter? Something they can just place over the toilet that will allow them to sit like civilized human beings to dump.

Which way do I face when I'm using that thing?

Ever since the knee operation, my squat lasts about 30 seconds, while my dumps last alot longer. I find a handy log when I'm in the woods.

One of our salesman went there last year, he says the entire country smells like urine. You also better watch where you eat, a refrigerator is a luxury over there.

"China? All the women there have cardboard, pancake asses like my girlfriend, but that's not the worst of it. I have to use this microscope to see the genitals of the men there, just like yours, Sam!"

As someone who doesn't even do well camping, there is no way I could use those toilets.

However, I wouldn't worry too much about crime. China is itching to become the next chief power in the world and is using these Olympic games as a way of highlighting why that should be. As they aren’t looking to make headlines for the wrong reasons, God help the criminal that assaults a foreign tourist.

I think we and the rest of the world would boycott these communist motherfuckers.

You can't be killing peaceful buddhists in your nation's Capital (never understood why the city is the Capital and the legislative building is the Capitol) and expect for civilized nations to be cool with it and show up for a peaceful festival.

All of Europe and the US should boycott to protest their communist government trying to keep religion out of their nation so they can keep telling people that the only authority in the world is their government.

Give people freedom you fucks

well yea, the people in power control every thing, under the guise of "protecting the people"

the issue with the monks is that they are a powerful political party over there, more than just a religion

They ARE communist. They only have certain desginated areas for their "free trade" to manufacture cheap shit and ship it out of country. The rest of the main land is pure communism. The only reason they set up those zones was to cash in on their supply of slave labor.

The government there controls all aspects of life for the Chinese people. That's communism.

It sucks that Britain gave Hong Kong back to them. It was the only decent part.

When my buddy in China last the only place he would drop the kids off at the pool, was at the hotel as they had western style toilets.

Jesus Christ.

I just can't squat to shit, Wackbag. I refuse to. At this point, we've had at least 5,000 years of steadily progressing civilization, and it's given us many fantastic technological advances, one of them being the Western-style toilet.

I'm not squatting like a fucking animal.
