Chinese media fault Obama for meeting with Dalai Lama

One day after President Obama met with the Dalai Lama, China continued to criticize the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader’s visit to Washington, D.C.

China’s state-controlled media claimed the Obama administration used the meeting to divert attention from continuing economic and political challenges it faces at home.

And, as the English-language channel of China’s state television reports, the meeting was a damaging blow to U.S.-China relations.

What does this story have to do with dogs and ponies ? This whole story is just more propaganda sponsored by China and echoed by media outlets. Tibet has been part of China for nearly 1000 years. It was only in the last 60 years that it was recognized as its own country. Tibet, may seem in the eyes of the western world to be a country which needs to be set free. But China will never lose control of Tibet unless it is on the brink of war. The most the Tibetan people can hope to have is a limited form of self government where the Chinese are held at bay and the yearly killing of thousands of Tibetans by ruthless Chinese authorities is put to a stop. Unless the United States is prepared to supply weapons to the Tibetan resistance all this is just media hype. If this was not just US/China propaganda then the United States should issue a statement and recognize the Dalai Lama as the leader of the Tibetan Government in Exile. Does any reader here see that happing very soon ? This is just an international dog and pony show.

The “Master’s Plan”! The “Yin-Yang Paradox”? Knowledge is the foundation’s cornerstone for science,structured upon failure,and success,although we would say the former ascendency logically is the very crucible for mankinds enlightenment,…whilst ignorance cowardly coerced into forbearance, predictably paves’ the way for extinction,…but the ancient age-old “Enigma” seems to be disrobing herself, bringing forth a more tangible-clarion answer so it seems,…ignorance truly could be bliss in the realm of inteligent-design, for if nature doesn’t destroy us as a civilization,nuturing “Darwinism’s” fundamental lack of “The Master Gene” innatly initiates objective contradictions,therefore labelling destiny no more than a “Fool’s Game” of arrogance!

China complains about Dali Lama, and US complains about Iran. China complains about Taiwan and US complains about N Korea. It is all a stupid game. Who is the biggest and baddest?

The Chinese need not fear the Dalai Lama in his unspoken rhetoric. The power comes with time and China is ancient in quality. Why need the Chinese fear the Dalai Lama in his flowings around the World? He can do nothing which is not determined. Meeting with one man can do no more than produce a flash of lightning in the dark of night.

Dalai Lama, who? He might be a spiritual leader, but that is all he is. He is head of a religion yet is nothing else. He is not head of a country, not head of a state, not head of a district, not head of a city, he was just a figure head of a by gone backward nation who lived in the 13th century.
Did anyone ever looked upon the Dalai Lama as being a religious ruler of a nation who would be called a religious nut by the rest of the world. Tibet would have been very little different than North Korea or Iran run by a single ruler forever.

Gunapie. The communists invaded China 60+ years ago, despite stiff resistance from the Chinese. Dalai Lama, quite to the contrary, welcomed the communists then, and asked his followers to lay down their arms voluntarily, and agreed to be the spiritual leader in Tibet under Chinese rule. Later, in a PBS special, Dalai Lama “explained” that the chinese failed to tell him that communists are atheists who believe that all religion would gradually disappear. He did not find out until Mao told him years later. He felt he was conned! Dah! He was the reincarnate, demi-god under Tibetan belief; yet, he did not know what every human government/political leader in the entire world knew about Karl Marx had written?

You know (China), when a nation invades another it is the duty of the world community to disarm the agressor and restore the land. Lucky for you (China) that the world community is not up to the task at the pressent moment.
