C'mon China, do summat!

Boycott Beijing if bloodshed in Burma

The Chinese government is key to the situation in Burma. They can turn the screw on the junta. Ideally they should offer the generals a safe refuge out of Burma and lean on them to leave.
If the Chinese choose to allow the generals to enact vicious reprisals we, as consumers, should boycott the 2008 Olympics and pressure our own governments to withdraw from it. Sorry it's another boycott, but what other power do we Western consumers have?
It's not as though they don't already have problems with junta, they allow narco armies to operate in remote areas as a counter weight to tribal militias, which in turn, leads to southern China being inundated with heroin.
