BEIJING (Reuters) - China deported five American tourists after they demonstrated for a free Tibet and protested against the 2008 Beijing Olympics at the base of Mount Everest, and said it had urged Washington to prevent a recurrence.

China made "solemn representation" with the United States, demanding it ensure American tourists abide by Chinese laws and not engage in any illegal activities, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

Sorry China. there is no way we can make liberals and anti-war crapheads abide by our own laws. Much less yours.

My best advice is to fine them whatever cash you can get off them and send them back on the next slow boat out.

IMO any American who goes to china and is stupid enough to deliberately place themselves on the other side of their laws is on his own pretty much.

The usual tourist courtesies should be expected,but if visitors go to China to participate in demonstrations or make trouble for the host country, they are on their own.

Wish we did the same thing here with our illegals and their la Raza demonstrations. Lock em up and send them home.

“...demanding it ensure American tourists abide by Chinese laws...”

Chinese Statute Number One: “Any comrade endorsing the principle of freedom of thought or speech will be arrested, tortured, then sent to a slave labor camp for re-education and several decades of manufacturing cheap Chinese goods to generate export revenue for The State.”

Chinese Statute Number Two: “Anyone caught resisting the Chinese genocide of the Tibetan people and the annihilation of the Tibetan culture will be arrested and summarily executed.”

Resistance is futile.... you will be assimilated.

Actually Seoul was 1988, not 1998. But that was a typo.

We should do the same here with “guests” waving foreign flags and yelling “Down with America.”
