China has been preparing pretty hard for the coming Olympics. They have already banned a large group of troublemakers from leaving Shanghai during the entire event and they also banned all bald and smelly cab drivers.

So just how seriously is China taking safety precautions for the upcoming Olympics?

Serious enough to have set up two separate camouflaged surface-to-air missile stations, with infrared radar systems, less than a mile from the 2008 Olympic venues to help with protection for the coming events.

Of course “made in China”, the “Red Flag-7” missile systems can take down a target anywhere up to 8 miles away with a 80-90% success rate.

The Chinese government has stepped up their precautions over fears of terrorism from Tibetan separatist and the Xinjiang Muslims, although we highly doubt either groups have aircraft that would need to be shot down…

As an added precaution, all people who live in any sort of basement have been forced to move out of their homes and all basements in the area have been closed completely.
