Subject: This writer must be blind
Sep 08 2006 09:04 PM

The writer of this piece is either blind or I question his objectivity.

Nearly every person I've talked to who really knows Tibet & Tibetans say that the Chinese occupation of Tibet is a terrible thing & Tibetans don't want to live under Chinese rule.

This writer met w/ a Chinese official in Tibet, but how many ordinary Tibetans did he talk with? Can he even speak Tibetan or have a Tibetan interpreter (not one hired by Chinese Govt)?

How many political prisoners did the writer interview? Did he even visit one prison?

Was the writer aware that most Tibetans in the TAR Govt don't even go to work b/c all day-to-day affairs are handled by Chinese? Was he aware that Tibetans in the govt. are forbidden to engage in religious activities?

The writer saw the heavy military presence but blankly accepted China's claim they were there to help develop Tibetans rather than their true purpose which was to maintain order & intimidate Tibetans?

Visitors to Tibet can see Tibetans praying but only superficial religious practices are allowed. Any veneration of HH the Dalai Lama is treated as w/ suspicion & can risk a Tibetan a jail sentence. Possession of the Tibetan flag can get you a jail term. What kind of freedom is that?

Until you've exerienced Tibet as a Tibetan you will never truly know how terrible life is for Tibetans under China's occupation.
