    Obama has met the Dalai Lama earlier too, but has been very careful not to upset the Chinese over these meetings.

    However, to openly show respect and affection in a public meeting, is a new one for Obama.

    It will surely irk the Chinese since they will not take it kindly.

    One wonders what prompted Obama to make a departure from the earlier style, during this meeting.

    What has made him so hostile to the China to openly irritate them?
