The real shame in all this is the violent protesters bastardizing their cause with their childish and criminal activities. They are actually doing the Chinese more good than they are the Tibetans. Childish minds commit childish acts.
Learn the lesson that "Nation Building" is a failure of epic proportions- we are not the world's policeman. We do not have the right to stuff our beliefs of Democracy down the throats of other countries around the globe. Even if we did, Iraq proves we cannot afford it.

not everyone can just get up and go to Tibet.
your fortunate to have been, but dont think that its a common course people take.
Luckily, I can go on the internet and ask people like you who have been what you saw and felt... its called communication

People should be allowed the right to self-determination. The Tibetans should be allowed to exercise that right.

Can we really trust the Dalai lama?

-The guy who keeps the caste system alive while this clearly defiles the teachings of The Buddha? (India & Tibet have the "evil corrupted brahmin" version of Buddhism, China and Japan the teachings as taught by The Buddha, Mahayana)
Can we really trust our western media? You should know that the west is looking for a war with China and everything they can use to agitate them will do!
