People in Tibet are not mad. They are being cheated by someone, and the man behind the scenes use these innocence people as the tools to realise his own political ambitions. … Answer Well said. I don't fully understand what's in it for China. Even HH. the Dalai Lama has said that he doesn't fully understand the Chinese mind. China doesn't care about their own people, or anyone else's. They don't care about animals. Money? Don't be so sure. The Goldmud-Lhasa railway has been described by the Chinese as a "political not commercial" venture. Meaning basically that they're doing it to make life a misery for Tibetans, and they don't care how much money they may lose. So what, precisely, DOES China care about? Your guess is as good as mine, because this is a definite grey area for me and others. Answer Dalai Lama is a theological figure but it doesn't mean that he has the same authority over political issues. When involving in Politics, his opinion may not represent the Supreme Being. Why not give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God? After all, for government or religion, the most important is to bring people a better life. Endless quarrel will harm both and leave people to live in misery. (MORE)
There's no such thing as "a" Tibet. Tibet is a country. Tibet is a plateu region in Asia, the highest region on earth. Sometimes it's even referred to as the "roof of the wo…rld". Also, it's a very religious country. Religion is extremely important to the Tibetans and has a strong influence over the country and its people's lives. In fact, a lot of Tibetan art depicts Buddha or other visions of religious significance. The "Dalai Lama" is a well-known term for a lineage of religious rulers. For a long while, however, China has owned Tibet, claiming that Tibet was originally a part of China. It was their excuse for invasion. This is a very controversial issue, especially considering recent archaelogical evidence that hints otherwise, but for the time being Tibet stays under China's rule == Tibet is a part of China since the 1200s when Europeans were still fighting amongst themselves. Tibet IS NOT A COUNTRY. It is an autonomous region where Han policies such as the one child policy do not apply to ethnic Tibetans. == Tibet is NOT a country. To be a country, it has to be accepted by other countries as being so. Currently NO countries in the world recognize Tibet as a country. In fact, official maps from the West in the last few hundred years all show Tibet as part of China In other words, Tibet has been part of China for at least a few hundred years. This would therefore invalidate the claim that China invaded Tibet in 1950. There is one example of the map of China produced by the US government in 1944 at time index 3:04 from the video clip in the related links section below this answer. (MORE)

Unfortunately, it's very unlikely to happen in the near future. The Chinese invaded in 1950 and they have an annoying tendency to stand their ground. The only realistic way I …can see Tibet's freedom occurring is if the international community puts pressure on China or even intervenes militarily. The Americans or British would veto it one way or another. (MORE)
