Violence in Tibet
On Monday, monks and other supporters started peaceful demonstrations to rally on the 49th anniversary of the Dalai Lama's exile to Nepal. Chinese authorities stepped in to quell the uprising, and now it's gotten quite violent.

As of this morning, CNN is reporting more than 100 dead.

The New York Times is reporting more than 30 dead.

Meanwhile, the official Xinhua government news agency is insisting only 10 people have been killed and blames the monks and their leader, the Dalai Lama.
"Now the blaze and blood in Lhasa has unclad the nature of the Dalai Lama, and it's time for the international community to recheck their stance toward the group under the camouflage of non-violence, if they do not want to be willingly misled.

The Dalai Lama and his clique have never for a day refrained from violence and terror. His childhood teacher, an Austrian, was a Nazi, and it's no secret that for quite a long time after he fled to India, he kept a force, armed by his western patron, for separatist activities. The peace advocator had also shown no interest in the global campaigns against U.S. wars on Afghanistan and Iraq."

Honestly, how can any rational person living in the free world swallow these propagandist delusional comments? It makes the Chinese look paranoid and completely out of touch with reality.

    I was listening to some of this on BBC radio today - it's crazy how China is justifying this. Did you hear the Olympic press conference? Who's ever going to believe that?
