CHINA HOSTS THE WORLD!
After seven (7) years of preparation and Forty (40) billion dollars USD in expenses, China is finally ready for the world! The XXIX Olympiad starts on August 8th, 2008 in Beijing China; with opening ceremony scheduled to hold in their newly completed construction-marvel, the $400million dollars USD National Stadium aka Peoples' Bird Nest. China has pulled it off again and the National Stadium speaks volume that this country of about 1.5 billion people has finally come to stay as a major world player indeed. Despite her shortfalls with human rights violations, China has been able to maintain her 1.5 billion people; feeding and clothing them. With what they have put together within a period of 7 years preparatory for the Olympics, historians and writers alike will judge the administration in Beijing fairly. According to one analyst, it is supposed to be just games but in reality, the modern Olympics is both symbolically and materially a political event; simply stated, it is a competition among nations. Icheoku therefore congratulates the Chinese people for their wonderful effort at putting Beijing in an Olympic state - magnificent edifices put in place for this great Olympics are marvelous wonders to behold! Icheoku heretofore wish them a hitch-free successful hosting of the world. Once again, Congratulations, Chinese people!
