It’s had been became clear that the Chinese government had the knowledge of the milk contamination prior to the Olympics games.

As usual,  in the mindset of a non-elected government, the success of the games is far more important than the lives of the people.  There, over a period of a month, more innocents babies and children had the kidneys damaged by the melamine enrich powder.

But, looking back, is it a surprise action from the Chinese government?

They had good track history,

from 1989, crackdown of the student movement, a recurrent occurrence of coal mine accidents, to the recent event of earth quake where schools fell like domino, killing thousand of students.

Unlike a change of mindset, which is virtually impossible in the communist controlled government, only an elected government will able to do so.
