    Free Tibet

    I agree that China should leave Tibet alone and stop all the aid, stop building Tibet's infrastructures, and stop giving Tibet all the resources.

    Let all the Tibetan monks think of how to sustain Tibet.

    Or maybe America should take Tibet from China because someone suspects there might be WMDs (which I've found out is an accronym for Oil Resources -- who knew?) hidden away in the mountains!

    (I'm Scott-Irish/Norwegian - Born in Ireland, so dont pop up calling me an ignorant American or anything... bunch of rubbish =P)

    How about China just stopping its horrible human rights abuses? That would be a good start.

    Zulu, could you possibly read some of the history of Tibet, the invasion, the exile of the Dali Lama and the various abuses and humiliations of the Tibetian people before trolling on the subject?

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I don't think I'll go, either. Take that, China.

    I love threads about China where multiple people prove they have absolutely no clue about Chinese history/culture/politics/current events/etc.

    Free Tibet! I'll take it!

    Hello, China? I think I have something you may want, but it's gonna cost you....that's right--all the tea.

    Re: Free Tibet

    Sure the country has entered another sovereign land against the will of its people, but you have to look at it this way: the invading country is helping to bring the target land into the modern age, bringing its people out of the rule of backward god-kings, building schools and railways, and modernizing the economy. Sure there are some abuses along the way but in the grand scheme of things this invasion is just and in the best interest of the folks being invaded.

    Whoops, wait, I didn't mean to reuse that post about Imperial Japan taking over China in the 1930s . . . I'll try to think of something new to write later.

    If it's Free why all the fuss about China taking it?

    I havn't seen Bladez on lately so I guess I will have to point out that Tibet wasn't a sovereign country. I don't think they even wanted complete separation from China.
    And if they had separated completly they would probably be part of India by now.

    Re: Free Tibet

    What was so great about Tibet before China, anyway?

    Sure, invading another country isn't what we would call pleasant, but good things can and do result from bad or incorrect actions. For example, I believe invading Iraq was absolutely the wrong move, but I think the Iraqis will be probably be better off for it in the long run. Are people going to be picketing in the future to "Free Iraq" and bring back Saddam's government the way it used to be (minus Saddam, obviously)? I doubt it.

    Re: Free Tibet

    You're implying, of course, that Tibet was "free" before China came in. Is that true?

    That's what I'm asking. What good things about Tibet have been stamped out by China's iron fisted approach to politics?

    What would you like to know? I haven't lived in China so I can't claim complete expertise, but I'd be happy to clear things up if you'd like.
