Tara is known to the Tibetans as The Faithful One, The Fierce Protectoress and to this day there are stories carried out of Tibet by refugees fleeing from the horrors of Chinese occupation that tell of her intervention and assistance in their lives.

Would it be too early to guess that Hong Kong is next on the list after Tibet?
Somehow I feel this will not be a top story on the MSM. I would say more but I am suddenly not feeling well. I think it is a case of compassion and sorrow. I'd ask the government for an inoculation but it would appear that a side effect is extreme stupidity and delusions of grandeur.

Look folks, China has very recently threatened to drop US securities and move to a Gold Standard...
That spells deep sh- for the US if that were to happen. It would literally crush us.
China has realized that they have us by the short hairs and are making sure that the US knows it. They did something similar when Bush took office. They shot down a plane and Bush didn't do a damned thing about it.

This is specifically the type of event he was talking about. And once again, the US bowed before their master.
China basically owns the US.

I remember watching the movie "Seven Years in Tibet" not too long ago. China sent its military generals over to meet with the Dalai Lama, and the Dalai Lama basically said that their philosophy forbids them from accepting the Chinese's terms or something.... and when one of the generals was leaving, he commented "religion is a disease".
My thoughts on the matter is that what they are trying to do and have been for many years (although now they have the strength and technology to actually accomplish the goal) is to wipe out all traditional and original Buddhist teachings.
People in the West don't understand how powerful Buddhist philosophy is against tyranny and oppression. It literally cannot happen in the face of widespread awareness, and that is exactly what Buddhism is still very faithful at teaching, if practiced or understood enough.

Don't see people ever talking about Corsica or how South Koreans hate the U.S. on this forum....
China had TIbet for a thousand years before the Westerners came in and separated the empire. SO blame this conflict on yourselves Westerners.
And yeh, China owns U.S. for now. But, the Chinese government will not want the U.S. to drop because Americans are still the main consumers.
And don't think China can't live without the U.S. because the Chinese are capable of consuming their own goods.
