So the Chinese are angry that The Dalai Lama is coming to the U.S. and his being welcomed with honors. I say who cares what the Chinese are angry about? Ever since the 1950’s the Chinese have done their level best to wipe Tibet off the face of the Earth. The only reason they have not been successful is the grassroots organizations and the strength and courage of The Dalai Lama and the Tibetan people in exile. Before the Chinese start spouting off at the mouth, maybe they should begin by apologizing. They could apologize for the early incursions into North East Tibet in the early 1950’s, during which thousands of Tibetan’s, trying to defend their homeland were killed. Or maybe they could apologize for machine gunning tens of thousands of Tibetans, including monks, women, and children, who stood guard outside the Dalai Lama’s residence in the late 1950’s to protect him from a kidnapping attempt or assassination.   Or how about apologizing for the thousands of monasteries that were looted and burned, destroying priceless Tibetan manuscripts and shipping anything worth money, including melted down gold, north to China. And when they’re done apologizing for that, they can return what they’ve stolen. Or maybe they should apologize for forcing celibate monks and nuns to publicly copulate? Or maybe for the tens of thousands of monks and nuns that were imprisoned for no reason, many of them dying there. Until China apologizes and recognizes Tibet as an independent nation, maybe they should just keep their mouths shut.
