Summer Games 2008 in Google Maps

Time is ticking for the Beijing Olympics 2008 opening ceremony. It is a going to be proud moment for every Chinese, a sweet way to tell the rest of the world that they have arrived on the world stage.

The Communist regime has put a whopping $40 billion, by-far the largest in Olympic history, to build the infrastructure for the event. They want to market the Beijing Games as the best ever and are leaving no stone unturned to make sure that everything is progressing according to Government Plan, even at the cost of freedom.

Oh...sorry, no politics!
