    And yet China is still surprised and angry that a UN report rated them 112th happiest country out of 156.

    I heard from a friend in Shanghai that a Chinese doctor she knows is going to Tibet to help with emergency medical services, or something along those lines. She can’t talk too much about Tibet online without getting disconnected, so I wasn’t able to ascertain why it was necessary for doctors from Shanghai to go to Tibet to help. So I’m wondering if there’s a whole lot more going on than we know (admittedly I haven’t been following it very closely).

    It  is not a  wonder why China supports Syria.

    The Chinese government… Christ, what a bunch of assholes.

    Seriously though, why do they spend so much time, money and effort. And squander so much good will from the rest of the world oppressing the Tibetans?  What is the point?

      I suppose if they get lazy on the Tibetan frontier they fear it might bolster more protests on their home ground. The majority of the “anti-Japan” protests in 2010 and 2011 were actually anti-government demos dressed up and peppered with Japanese flags in altered videos to distract from domestic dissent.

      The PRC’s human rights abuses are appalling and even seem to be emboldening the US to follow their examples of torture and jackbooting on a massive scale. 

      May their oppressive regime go the way of so many others in history.
