Looks like the DaLIE Lama has finally lost his marbles. Maybe he's near death?

Actually China should be glad to hear this allegation from Dalai Lama.

Annihilation of Buddhism is not a new allegation. Dalai Lama and anti-China politicians and their media had alleged that China allows no religious freedom at all. Dalai Lama and his associates living overseas have accused China for the following for a very long time (50+ years): genocide, cultural genocide, and annihilation of Buddhism, Islam, and other religion. In their propaganda, they say China is a large gulag in which people are massacred and tortured. Religions were non-existent because the CCP should have already completed this task. Genocide and cultural genocide should have already been done in Tibet after 50 to 60 years.

When DL said that "China aims to destroy Buddhism", he admits that Buddhism still exists in China today, and it is China's next goal (to be accomplished in the future).

DL has contradicted his previous accusations (made in the last 50 - 60 years). Everything he said in the last 50 years has been overturned by his recent statement. The job is not done yet despite the CCP has allegedly carried out these tasks mecilessly.

Buddhism, and other religions still exist in China today. Other religions continue to prosper. Minority ethnic groups continue to increase in numbers.(Each minority family is allow to have more than 1 child and the Han majority is allowed only 1 child per family. A well established miniority policy since 60 years ago.)

Following China's reform policies and opening up regions/cities in the interior for investment and tourism, foreign and Chinese visitors have found what DL said in the past is untrue! They saw Tibetans and temples everywhere in Tibet, and temples exist throughout China.

Alright, he revises his allegation this time - "China aims to annihilate Buddhism". It is probably an important task for the future. Before the day comes, China is full of Buddhist monks, believers, and temples today!

Tibetans are simple uncomplicated folks - having known many of them I can safely say that. I would immediately lose respect for anyone who thinks bad about such simple peace-loving people.

Peace-loving? You mean like those who killed all those innocent people during the Lhasa Riot of 2008? Oh, I forget, your press said it's "peaceful protest." My ass.

Well RayH when you take away freedom of expression it pisses off people something you are in denial of.
Clearly there is simmering discontent.

A little push by the DaLIE Lama and U.S. NED to fan the flames.

This is the only thing I agree with you. Tibetans are peaceful people, and I have a great of sympathy with the serfs and slaves who got their freedom and basic rights only in 1959 (i.e. the time when they were emancipated, the theocratic system abolished, and Dalai Lama and landlords rebelled and fled from China). They were so simple and devoted to Buddhism that they almost accepted their fate as serfs and slaves without complaints. They have put up with social injustice for centuries before being liberated.(Also I dislike Mao Tse Tung, but his liberation of these poor folks from slavery is the only thing that I like.)

The poor slaves deserved so much of our sympathy and indeed they were very simple. Unfortunately, a small group of Tibetans who live in exile now dominate the headline all the time. This group of Tibetans were so mean and had treated their poor folks so inhumanely. Now they claim that they represent the human rights of the former serfs and slaves.

While most of the Tibetans are so peaceful and simple, many Indians and their government are not. India has annexed Sikkim, a country originally inhabited by people of Tibetan ethnicity and Napelese immigrants. British India and India after independence have been very aggressive in their aggrandisement of territories of the Tibetans and other tribes in north India. These are all simple people.

These Indian folks (especially the one from Koln Germany) are trying to confuse the issue. Are you saying the former slavemasters now in exile = the innocent poor Tibetans who had been enslaved by these overlords for centuries?

The overlords treated the serfs and slaves like dirt, and do you say the former are kind, peaceful and simple. They are cruel. However, the majority of the Tibetans (95% were serfs and slaves) deserve our sympathy.

As indicated by these two Indian posted messages, India and many Indians support the slave masters/landlords (who had done so much to harm these innocent poor souls). Are you saying you love these poor Tibetans too? That's your logic?

The bulk of the people who went to India with the DaLIE Lama in 1959 were the former aristocracy, Theocracy, and land-owners who owned slaves and serfs in Old Tibet. They lost the CIA aided and armed 1959 Uprising because they failed to gather support from their serfs and slaves.

The Chinese government said, "There is NO Tibet problem, just a Dalai Lama problem."

Anyways, the Chinese government is obviously just waiting for the DaLIE Lama to die. His foreign-funded exile movement will collapse from within from in-fighting and dwindling funds. Good riddance.

Ray China has killed many in Tibet
Tiananmen Square was a national travesty which China will not ever forget
you mock the Buddha and his teaching when you mock Tibet and the Dalai Lama
you can ost anything you like but try to see that China invaded Tibet and caused all the violence China has no excuse other than tyranny and Beijing knows it nor will China ever forget ther cruelty in Tibet
it is not a matter of hate it is a matter of knowing that war creates war and realising that China is heavy on too many people China is a huge nation with great potential the only lesson China needs to learn is that invadig other nations is wrong.China has a great deal to learn about the orld and human rights to live without wr without pain without the threat of violence you can laugh you can mock but you are wrong to defend those who would kill you for who you are or what you believe.China is wrong period.

Trevor: You are back. We were wondering what happened to you? Silence due to NED pulling its funding to Tibetan separatists, caused by Uncle Sam's bankruptcy?

After these March anniversaries are over, back to silence?

Maybe silence for good after the DaLIE Lama dies.
