    You actually blame the most peacefull man there has ever lived? the man that won the Nobel Peace Prize? He even said that if the violence didn't stop, he would resign as Dalai Lama. I just wonder why you love the chinese goverment so much...

    And whats this with Tibet doesn't gain anything, if the region/country wants to be free from chinese influence, then let them!

    Since when did Tibet want to be free from Chinese influence? I'm pretty sure there are more people outside of Tibet wanting Tibetan independence than actual Tibetan residents want the same thing. To them, the Chinese government has been great for business and great for their standard of living. Of course, there will always be dissenters, but if you go to Tibet, you'll see that life isn't all that bad for them. Well, probably not now, since the dissenters are stirring up trouble.

    It's the phenomenon with the chinese diaspora, that they support the chinese government though they life freely in democratic countries around the globe. Somekind of irrational choice to be 1:1 with a repressive regime just because out of a feeling of unreflected proud upon chinese economic gains in the last years... Try to read China Daily Website - Connecting China Connecting the World and you laugh tears of joy about the most primitive propaganda around the globe... (But on the other side Americans believed that the Iraq war was necessary in '03, too...)

    It's a fact that China tries to overwhelm Tibet now by sending a lot of Chinese into the region that outnumber the Tibetians in influence and life status. Those Chinese control 100% of the wealth in Tibet and treat the Tibetans as a second class because of racism. It's not surprising that the Tibetans want those out of their country by all means necessary to gain back their old life status and culture...

    I wanna make a joke about the Native Americans and the British/French/Spanish/Americans but I dunno how...


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
