    Stay away from Tibet, China tells international community

    BEIJING: Riled by calls from UN Human Rights body and some Western countries to address the recurring self immolations in Tibet protesting Chinese rule, Beijing today slammed them saying foreign nations should stop interfering in its "domestic affairs".

    "Tibetan affairs are totally China's domestic affairs," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told a media briefing here.

    Recently, politicians in the US, the European Union and Canada had disregarded facts, confused right and wrong and groundlessly accused China on Tibet-related issues, Hua said.

    In a statement recently, the US had accused China of responding to Tibetan immolations with tightened controls over their freedom of religion, expression and assembly.

    UN Human Rights Commission chief Navi Pillay too had expressed concern over the continued self immolations, which crossed 90 and urged Chinese government address the issue.

    The comments calling on Beijing to address tensions in Tibet were rude interferences in China's internal affairs and the country was strongly dissatisfied with them and resolutely opposed those acts, she said.

    Last month alone about 23 self immolations have taken place coinciding with the leadership change of the ruling Communist Party of China.

    Hua said that Tibet has made great progress in politics, economy, culture and other fields since the peaceful liberation of Tibet in 1951, which is widely recognised by the international community.

    She urged foreign officials to immediately correct "erroneous words and deeds", earnestly respect China's sovereignty and no longer do anything to interfere in the country's internal affairs.

    According to activists, over 90 people, most of them in their late teens and 20s, have set themselves afire in Tibet since February 2009.

    *****************************************

    China claims that it has done a lot for Tibet and Tibetans and yet they embarrass the Chinese people and the Govt of China.

    Dalai Lama is blamed, but the Tibet Govt denies that they are anyone involved in the spontaneous protest including self immolation by the Tibetans and state that the Tibetans at large are disgusted with the manner in which China is subjugating the Tibetan people and their wiping out their singular identity.

    Is there no solution?

    What do the Chinese feel about Tibet is what one must know.

    In Hong Kong there was a suggestion that Tibet should be given similar autonomy as Hong Kong if indeed it is to be an autonomous region of China.

    That appears to be the solution, but the Chinese Govt has rejected it.

    Could it be because the Chinese Govt does not trust the Tibetan they being non Han and not yet assimilated, while Hong Kongers have been assimilated?

    Tibetans need to up the ante. For too long they have been silently bearing the atrocities.

    Tibetans themselves cannot up the ante in the massive presence of PLA. It has to happen at a opportune moment when PLA is tied up elsewhere with the help of international community. Only during war with India, US or Japan is this possible. Or wait for the collapse of china under its own weight due to some social/economic/political upheaval. Till then they will have to bear the oppression.

    Well clearly they are not able to bear it cause they are burning themselves. Imagine what suffering these people are going through if these people consider burning themselves as a better option.

    i had thought that the tibetan plateau was considered an international heritage - the world community is allowing china to push them around too much

    Aum Truth Cult, David Camp also kill themselves, by the way, Dalai Lama is a close friend of Shinrikyo, the founder of Aum Truth Cult.
    and the Whole Lama Buddhism is an invention of some of you bhais, they came to Tubo (that time Tibet) from India and started a coup to overthrow the secular authority and built up this savage theocracy which greatly hindered the progress of Tibetan people, Central government of China in the history saw this handy tool and
    encouraged lama buddhism ( actually, barely anything buddhism but hinduism in its original form) to keep tibet a backward region to rule.

    The PRC emancipated this enslaved people, most of them enjoy their social progress except some remaining of the old ruling power, who fooled those innocent young people to set themselves on fire for their own dirty hidden political agenda.

    In fact the US Government had to blockade the CSA to prevent support from the UK and elsewhere.

    You should read Mark Twain about the Sandwich Islands, missionaries, and the US Government.

    Doesn't really parallel what China did in Tibet,

    Of course the US Civil War doesn't parallel what China did in Tibet. Even the highest estimates of combat casualties from 1950-1960 in Tibet don't reach over 100,000 killed and wounded. By contrast, the Union and the Confederacy suffered over 600,000 casualties in an era where the total population of the US was barely 30 million people.

    And just to jog your memory, it wasn't the CSA blockade that prevented support from the UK, it was the fact that the Union was willing to go to war with Britain and France that kept them out of the conflict. See the Trent Affair for details.
