    The right move. Delinking culture and religion from politics will put the Tibetan independence movement in a difficult position. This should be followed up in tandem with increased resettlement policies, and compulsory Sinicization of Tibetan children, with identification of the most talented Tibetan youth for education and postings in China's east coast - up the unfavorable and assimilationist economic/political policy, while softening the cultural and religious policies. Shrink the Dalai Lama's 'gray area' of cultural autonomy - force him to eventually choose between criticizing the political and economic policy and forfeiting his purely cultural/religious role, or accepting Chinese political and economic sovereignty and losing his exile base.

    The Tibetans have forced the Chinese to backtrack!

    That is the power of Peaceful Resistance!

    But will the Tibetan's relent from total autonomy?

    Why not! It is harmless to lift a ban on the picture of a dying man. They have to replace it very soon.
