Ancient Chinese Secret: China vs Rainclouds

The Chinese aren't content with suppression of freedom of speech and democracy. They even want to suppress the weather. It was recently revealed that they have a plan to try to change the weather for the 2008 Olympics. If it looks like rain, the Chinese are testing equipment to disperse the rainclouds. To me, it seems somewhat sinister that they are so dedicated to the Olympics going perfectly that they even want to alter the weather. I don't know. Maybe it will work, but there's something strange about going to all that trouble over clouds. Wouldn't it be cheaper and easier to just use a tent and issue umbrellas?

The governments need for control knows no bounds. On the other hand if you can control the rain, why wouldn't you? If I was planning a picnic and knew I could guarantee good weather I'd do it. Much less the massive "picnic" the Chinese are planning for the Olympics. The image of them shooting down clouds with a gatling gun is pretty funny though. LOL

Dear Sir,
Is there such a thing as an anti-raindance? If so, I'm available.

Dear Sir,

That last letter was blatantly racist. How can you spread such hatred?
