BEIJING -- The Chinese government has taken security very seriously around here.

For example, just to get into the hotel and media complex, I have to be screened like we are at Logan International Airport.

We scan our bags, electronics and walk through the security metal checker. If they are not satisfied, you get a more personal search.

When you are done, you go about your business.

But today was different. After I completed the security process, I saw a big Chinese tank (above). I guess they want to make sure nothing bizarre would happen.

So when would they use the tank? Are they expecting an ambush by land? Will they shoot me if I came through with something questionable?
