Relax dude, your blood pressure is gonna blow up. Name calling is the first resort of the ignorant. Tibet was an independent country until China illegally invaded and claimed it for there own.

That link proves what i have said the area has been ever changing through the Centuries but it suits your agenda to say at this time its not part of China like you decided Kosovo wasn't part of Serbia,you didn't see it that way when the Confedrate States decided they wanted independence.

So, did China invade Tibet in 1949 and occupy it since then.

The only one who said anything about Kosovo is you dude. Get a grip. The question was and is, did China invade Tibet.
Answer:
YES YES YES YES YES

Now, if you want to debate about who has invaded whom since the beginning of recorded history, every nation has been invaded by some one else at some point in their history. As it stands today, Tibet has been wrongfully occupied by China.

Kosovo (pron.:/&#712;k&#594;s &#601;vo&#650;&#71 6; &#712;ko&#650;s&#6 01;vo&#650;/; Albanian: Kosovė, Kosova; Serbian: &#1050;&#1086;&#10 89;&#1086;&#1074;& #1086; or &#1050;&#1086;&#10 89;&#1086;&#1074;& #1086; &#1080; &#1052;&#1077;&#10 90;&#1086;&#1093;& #1080;&#1112;&#1072; or &#1050;&#1086;&#10 89;&#1084;&#1077;& #1090;, Kosovo or Kosovo i Metohija or Kosmet[6]) is a region in southeastern Europe. In antiquity, the Dardanian kingdom, and later Roman province of Dardania was located in the region. It was part of Serbia in the Middle Ages, during which time many important Christian monasteries, some of which are now UNESCO World Heritage sites, were built.

The Battle of Kosovo in 1389 is regarded by Serbs as a defining moment in their history and identity. In the 15th century, the region was conquered by the Muslim Ottoman Empire and remained under Ottoman rule for the next five centuries.

After the First Balkan War (1912-1913), Kosovo was incorporated into the Kingdom of Serbia. The constitution of Yugoslavia, created after World War II, recognised the Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija (Serbian: &#1040;&#1091;&#10 90;&#1086;&#1085;& #1086;&#1084;&#1085; &#1072; &#1055;&#1086;&#10 82;&#1088;&#1072;& #1112;&#1080;&#1085; &#1072; &#1050;&#1086;&#10 89;&#1086;&#1074;& #1086; &#1080; &#1052;&#1077;&#10 90;&#1086;&#1093;& #1080;&#1112;&#1072;, Autonomna Pokrajina Kosovo i Metohija) within the Yugoslav republic of Serbia.[7]

Long-term severe ethnic tensions between Kosovo's Albanian and Serb populations have left Kosovo ethnically divided, resulting in inter-ethnic violence, including the Kosovo War of 1999.[8] The Kosovo War ended with the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia accepting that it would give up the exercise of its sovereignty pending a final status settlement. Under UNSCR 1244, governance passed to the United Nations in 1999.

In 2008 the Republic of Kosovo (Albanian: Republika e Kosovės; Serbian: &#1056;&#1077;&#10 87;&#1091;&#1073;& #1083;&#1080;&#1082; &#1072; &#1050;&#1086;&#10 89;&#1086;&#1074;& #1086;, Republika Kosovo) declared itself an independent state. It has control over most of the territory and has partial international recognition.[9][10][11] North Kosovo, the largest Serb enclave, is largely under the control of institutions of the Republic of Serbia or parallel structures subsidised by Serbia.[9][10][11][12][13] Serbia does not recognise the secession of Kosovo[14] and considers it a UN-governed entity within its sovereign territory, a position supported by a number of other countries.
