I found the 08 ceremonies overly nationalistic as well. But I'd say these ones were even worse.

Again, exporting the culture and showing oneself to the world is fine. But this is the olympics, it's about sport, about athletes from all the countries in the world. It's seems the olympics itself has been only superficially explored... one would think these two ceremonies have been financed by the British Ministry of Tourism of something.

We can do what we so please!
And I can say what I think of what you do.

Is that the way you argue all the time?
