    “The Chinese government will unwaveringly protect its national sovereignty and territorial integrity”

    Yeah, like they know what that means. I can't believe they actually have words for that in the chinese language (integrity)

    It's easy to condemn China's occupation of Tibet, but remember, China invaded Tibet because Tibet is a giant plateau overlooking China on which tanks could be amassed for an invasion. In fact, when China invaded Tibet it was facing an invading Indian Army.

    Meanwhile the people who are shedding tears over the poor Tibetans have nothing to say about, say, the Kurds--the largest stateless nation in the world.

    China seizes TVs, satellite equipment in Tibetan area
    Sat, Dec 29, 2012 - Chinese authorities have confiscated 3,000 TVs from monasteries in a heavily Tibetan part of the west of the country and dismantled satellite equipment that broadcast “anti-China” programs, prompted by Tibetan self-immolations in the region.
