let's simplize the issue in this way..
i was a villein working for a landlord, while another tibetan was a slave belonging to a noble. we are both belong to a same village. the landlord and the noble obeyed the rule of Qing empor, then the kuomintung's control. years passed, one day, another giant named communist party came and toppled the governor then set up his regime and liberate me as a villein and the tibetan serf. so now, can you say any invasion occured in this process?
we still work in the village one as a worker and another as a shopowner...so now, can you say that we belong different country now?

You can not say because you think you own something and because every generation tells the next one that, then somehow it becomes yours.
I could say i own the moon and tell my grandchildren that they own the moon, but that does not make it mine.
I must admit I routinely become annoyed with Chinese internet filters
Is having a bunch of reporters always a good thing? The Western media has already made up their minds about who they think is in the right anyway.

What started as a peaceful protest turned into a violent riot. I don't think anyone has denied that fact.
However, the beginning of this protest was peaceful, hence the original posts.
After the Chinese have restricted movement in Tibet and cracked down on protesters, of course its going to get bloody.

Reuters pictures clearly showing Tibetans burning down buildings, beating Chinese citizens in mobs, and throwing rocks at the police.
