Death toll in Tibet now 140? The numbers are difficult to verify because China controls the flow of information so religiously. Germany (a country in love with Buddhism) wants answers from China on the violence.
Have the Olympics already been tainted beyond redemption by China’s actions? How will China handle international (i.e. Western) protesters at the games this summer? They can’t go bludgeoning teenagers from Seattle as easily as they can Tibetan monks. If the torch-lighting ceremony protests were any indication, we should expect this.
The U.S. sent missile parts to Taiwan. Accidentally. If the Chinese weren’t so busy they’d be howling with rage over this.
Also, more to feel guilty about; your carbon footprint!
