IOC Considers Calling Off Olympic Torch Relay

Following flame-dousing protests yesterday in Paris, the International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge said he was "deeply saddened" by the protests and will decide by Friday whether the torch race will continue.

The flame has just landed in San Francisco, ahead of the only US-leg of the race to be held tomorrow. (Liberty and I will be there! Look for our exclusive CitizenSugar coverage tomorrow!) If protesters scaling the Golden Gate Bridge in protest is any indication of the scope of the protests to come, it stands to be quite a story.

Should the torch relay be called off? Have the events in London and Paris shown the true international thoughts about the Beijing games?
