He stands for achieving peace by way of peace, and since Gandhi and Martin Luther King aren't around, he's a placeholder for that kind of position.

He is a jet-set Brahman who treasures celebrity, power of Tibet and the countless billions tossed his way by soulless rich people from the West. What's to like?

He wears these garishly flamboyant robes and pontificates to mindless sheep, collecting untold billions in the name of preserving his power and interests. When the pope does that, he's evil incarnate. When the Dalai Lama does it, the Beastie Boys and Rage Against the Machine play benefit concerts. Fuck liberals and their double standards.

Cause they have nothing better to do. It is the same reason they are so obsessed with the Royal Family, or Britney Spears, or Paris Hilton, or who we have in DC.

Who is Dalai Lama and how flamboyant outfits does he wear, is not the question. The question here is why Americans love Dalai Lama? Some sort of political plans? Recently also Obama met Dalai Lama and talked about democracy, human rights etc. Are such meetings really hepful especially when the other countries like China react so much about them?

The holiness is good at religion, but sadly he is a political liar. If he stays away from politics, he would get more supporters.

Funny how the communist Chinese watch the internet for any positive sign of the Dalai Lama or any other religious leader. Atheistic people often feel threatened by faith and belief systems. China tried India but settled for Tibet. Tibet was full of pacifists. Congratulations for stealing candy from a baby. Now China has its minions looking to squash any positive influences on the Internet.

"Why Americans love the Dalai Lama"

CNN, more censorship by Omission here.

Why Americans love the Dalai Lama: If the people in the United States knew the Lama and the CIA sent Death Squads into China in the 1960s and 1970s they probably would change their minds on both the lama and the cia.

There is no tinge of Chinese sympathy from the post. Get a brain and open your eyes. I guess,'freedom of speech' is that ignorants are free to rant bad airs.
