Dalai Lama is seeking the world community to help resolve… How does he propose the world community to help when this is an internal matter?

Did the EU leaders stand in solidarity not to boycott the forthcoming Olympic Games on objective grounds or, because Dalai Lama had not called for a boycott? What if Dalai Lama decided to boycott? Would I see the world boycott the Olympics then?

In the latest issue of Times magazine (ending March), the writer haloed how enlightened and magnanimous Dalai Lama is. Yet impressing me his slant at demonising China on human rights issue, a legacy of the past, on the present lot of China leaders.

If I understand correctly, each province is made up of local leaders. Are the local leaders in Tibet stooges of the Central Committee? Are these local leaders not given the autonomy to see fit the province ought to be governed? What is freedom of thought and speech? Are the monks being persecuted in their saffron robes or practising their religion? Criticisms made that Chinese flood the land but are Chinese nationals not gracing their presence in every developing countries especially the West?

I’m not a China watcher or a Tibet watcher. But pardon me and don’t get me wrong, I’m not pro China but — pressure-cooking or putting the human rights issue on the present lot of leaders in China is as fair as wondering if the Dalai Lama in exile is the one encouraging the recent protests and unrests. Surely the monks would not take on or initiate the protest by themselves.

Where was Dalai Lama when the Tibetans burnt the China flag? Did he call for restraint? If the monks revered and treated the Dalai as their leader, surely they would have acted in a non-violent manner. Where is the credibility of the Dalai then?

The US rallied coalition forces to enter Iraq as a result of the 911 attack on World Trade Center in New York. Surely the sole purpose was to fight terrorism and not liberating Iraq from their tyrant ruler Saddam to eventually build up that nation.
