    I am glad to see they let the Iraqi’s compete. I always think it is a terrible move to politicize the attendance of the Olympics (see United States, 1980). It unnecessarily punishes the athletes, who devote years of their life to one competition, to make a fleeting political statements. There are other avenues to make such statements.
