*****GK: I basically agree with Piotr's position. In
any case, these boycotts are never universal, and only
represent the agenda of particular political and
ideological forces. I don't remember the U.S.S.R. (or
pre-war Nazi Germany?) ever being boycotted in this
fashion. And today's suggested boycotts would have at
least more moral credence if entities such as Russia
(re Chechnya), China (re Tibet and Sinkiang), Turkey
(re Kurdistan) etc..etc.. etc... (add as required)
were included.****
