Spielberg boycotts China Olympics over Darfur

The Darfur tragedy is largely a proxy oil war between the USA and China. Spielberg has had enough, and he has heard his conscience:

"US film director Steven Spielberg has withdrawn as an artistic adviser for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

"In a statement, he accused China of not doing enough to pressure Sudan to end the 'continuing human suffering' in the troubled western Darfur region.

"At least 200,000 people have been killed and two million forced from their homes in the five-year conflict.

"Beijing has not yet responded to the move, which correspondents say is its first big setback in staging the Games."
