Subject: Jamyang Norbu's writings

It is laudable that Jamyang Norbu writes for the intellectual mindset. However, it would be more laudable, more practical and more useful if he writes more for the common people of Tibet.

He may have some affect on the intellectuals with his writings but without the support of the masses, his efforts will most likely prove to be futile.

Subject: Brutal disdain for global security
Feb 23 2009 03:05 PM

Whenever I read a text of Jamyang Norbu, I highly regret that it will have little influence on Dharamsala. Jamyang has been commenting on Tibet’s and China’s political affairs for more than three decades, but his writings seem to have been less remarked in Dharamsala where Tibetan leaders in exile are too busy applauding and acclaiming every decision made by the Dalai Lama, than in Beijing where the danger of such an eloquent writer is directly felt.

Today, with such a clear-sighted commentary on Communist China’s “nuclear-threat-by-proxy”, my feeling of hopelessness is even stronger. I’m not yet done with my hangover from last November’s political disaster and already I have to be reminded that those driving the boat from the Himalayan foothills are thousand of miles away from the harsh reality of politics. The world is threaten by Chinese leaders’ disastrous recklessness and brutal disdain for global security, but Dharamsala keeps on believing that Tibet could strike a peaceful deal with them, at no cost, on the simple basis of “truth”. “Truth will prevail”. “Truth insistence”. The truth is that, in the meantime, Chinese nuclear know-how proliferates dangerously in the hands of the villains.

Will there be, one day, anyone in the TGIE courageous enough to face “the ruthless and Machiavellian extremes to which China is prepared to go to achieve its strategic goals” and to act accordingly? In his previous post, Jamyang Norbu underlined the lack of experts invited during last November so-called Special Meeting. Considering this present commentary on Chinese nuclear threat, isn’t it time for Dharamsala to adopt a new approach and start employing native and far-sighted advisors such as Jamyang Norbu rather than foreigners with hidden interests in China?
