We are used to Chinese lies. I don't feel anything when China lies. I don't want autonomy. I want revenge for 1.2 million people slaughtered, 6,000 monasteries destroyed, and every nun who has faced a cattle prod. I want revenge.

I hope the UN will do more than just ask China questions about what they did in response to the mass protests i Tibet earlier this year. Otherwise China will respond w/ its usual denials & false statements about how they've improved the material lives of Tibetans.

The UN should conduct a thorough fact-finding investigation in Tibet to find out why Tibetans had demonstrated & how China reacted to those demonstrations.

China will deny the existence of sexual violence in prison and torture.

Thanks to the UN for bringing it up, but the reality is that it is no use.

What is needed is a method for holding individual Chinese officials accountable for these type of actions.

That accountability can only be mustered when the Tibetan people in Tibet exact a corresponding price for atrocity, not by stooping to the level of the Chinese, but by removing the threats to their people's dignity.

Chronicling the abuses in detail and producing a video for worldwide distribution would be useful. Let's call it "Envoys of Evil: Torture and Rape in Colonized Tibet." To hell with trying to make the Chinese out as decent human beings to further this endless process of pre-negotiative chatting. Let's show the world the real face of the Chinese monster.

Then again, there is another method to check the abuse. Let me ask...

Which is a greater crime -- violence, or passive acceptance of colonialist brutality?

China does nothing but lie and brutalize. Perhaps a Buddha like His Holiness can call such men his "brothers and sisters." But they are no part of my human family.

Leave it to the lamas to destroy some mysterious supernatural threats. But as far as the reality of this world is concerned, the only way to check Chinese brutality is for the people inside Tibet to make the price of brutality greater than the Chinese can bear.

I'll be lucky if Phayul allows this to post. But my innermost feeling is that I'd rather see 10,000 soldiers shot that one more nun raped. And I am convinced that China does not care about the welfare of Tibetan people. But they have an Achilles heel, like all men.

And there will come a day when, tired of myriad sufferings, the Tibetan people will rise up and resist in a host of wrathful ways. That may not be pretty Dharma, but it speaks of HUMAN truth, justice, and dare I say beauty.
