ok, even I think this is stupid

American athletes have been "warned not to wave the U.S. flag during their medal celebrations, for fear of provoking crowd hostility and harming the country's already-battered public image."

Ok, look. If we have a bad image in the world, how will not waving the flag when we win gold medals make it better?

Are we going to send world journalists flowers and chocolates in hopes that they'll cover the US in a more favorable light too?

People are mad.
