Subject: Obama must speak about Tibet
Feb 14 2012 01:49 AM

It's not enough for the State Dept or some White House spokesperson to raise the Tibetan issue w/ Chinese officials visiting DC. Tibet must be raised by Obama directly w/ Xi Jinping. Only at that highest govt levels will China pay attention. It will raise the stakes of the US diplomatic efforts to help human rights in Tibet.

"Raising the issues, as we always do," is a tired old record that continues to spin. A good vote winning piece of rhetoric without substance. Sadly for Tibetans, they have believed US intervention will eventually save them. Pure fantasy. So much of the world is suffering some form of Chinese repression, be it as job losses, businesses, manufacturing, stripping countries of minerals, metals ans so on. They control a huge chunk of the worlds debt. Basically they have the world by the balls. But China thinks of itself as an independent entity, which it is not. It is a raw recruit in a free democratic world, running amok. There is growing dissent and protests by the Chinese people against land grabbing, job losses, unpaid wages, the increasing chasm between rich and poor. Inflation at 10%, huge building developments standing empty. This frenzied rush to have "The Image " as represented by the mansions, private jets, gas guzzling cars etc, is as every good Buddhist knows, a path to nowhere. The old saying, "a victim of your own success" will one day be the next chapter in China's book of miscalculations and disasters.
