Subject: Kudos to Jamyang Norbu la,

Dear Jamyang Norbu la,

Kudos to your consistent efforts in making us(younger generations)more aware and alert with the recent books and one sided opinions.You are making us run and update more with times. thank you.

While I am yet to read this book, for i am not sure if it available in India with cheaper price, however your review of this book sure gave me enough reasons to go and pick one of it in coming days. what i really wanted to explore more is that the authors straight and very confident remarks of "Autonomy approach not only questioned but also claimed to be complete failure strategy".

with solidarity and peace.

This new book by Prof. Smith sounds very interesting. I did not read Smith's first book, Tibetan Nation, but have been meaning to pick it up. I think Smith's books will be educational & enjoyable to read.

I also recently purchased a book by several scholars that address China's "100 Questions on Tibet" & responds to each question to show how China's answers were wrong or misleading. I'm looking forward to reading it.

While Tibet may have made certain mistakes in the years prior to the 1950 invasion, the truth is that Mao was intent on conquering Tibet & nothing was going to stand in his way. Mao didn't care about how much it would cost to conquer Tibet; if he wanted it done, the PLA was going to do it.

Likewise the present Communist Party wants to maintain rule over Tibet & they don't care whether their int'l image suffers or whether Tibetans are happy or unhappy or how many Tibetans they have to imprison or kill to maintain control over this region. They'll do it b/c they want to & b/c the can command their army & police to do it w/ no questions asked. No amount of negotiation is ever going to convince the CCP to give up even slightly it's tight grip over Tibet.

It will take the fall of the CCP in China for Tibet to regain its independence. But I think that will happen sooner than anyone imagines & we Tibetans must be ready to seize the moment when the CCP is wracked by internal chaos to re-assert control over our homeland.
