Retroactive Olympic Ban for US War Crimes?

I'm NOT in favor of Olympic boycott or to ban past athletes.

Spitz, Al Oerter, Dick Fosbury, Bob Beamon, Frank Shorter, Peggy Fleming and other US athletes weren't responsible for US crimes in Vietnam. Dangerous, violent or corrupt governments are everywhere.

Implant Patriotism in US colonies

Boarding schools for indigenous kids & after-school activities such as scouts were too often designed to manipulate & indoctrinate children. The training process was often fun -- all the more disturbing.

Children were corrupted "during their receptive years"...

The explicit "Americanization" strategy below was operating in 1922, almost 30 years after the American military triggered illegal overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii "with the active participation of agents and citizens of the United States" (US Public Law 103-150). Subversion by the colonizer.

Zelenskyy -- "The War Monger"

Should Olympic competition ban athletes from belligerent nations? Europeans have been murderous colonizers - how long should they be punished? The Vietnam War was widely condemned - should dirty wars stop US Olympians? What of UK fight for distant Falkland colony / Malvinas, or the murderous Troubles in Ireland? Make time for truce. 

The Ukraine is pressing the Olympic movement to ban Russian & Belarus athletes or face boycott.

Media is shaping decisions! Wars are not new. Olympic truce promotes peace.

Sport & art are ways talent can blossom, potentially providing a path for emigration (defection). It's wrong to punish all people born under a violent government.
