Isn't Dalai Lama too a symbol of religious extremism?

the Dalai Lama has said repeatedly that he wants only “real autonomy” >for Tibet.

Well...maybe real autonomy would be possible under a democratic federation, but with China? Go for independence. China is doing EXACTLY what Imperial Japan did with Manchuria.

Exactly what does Tibet do for China? I can understand why China would like to get its hands on Taiwan, but Tibet?

Well, yes .. but I don't know of anyone who considers Buddhist extremism to be a Bad Thing. I may be wrong here, but Buddhism has traditionally been a very peaceful religion.

Yeah, Buddhism is a peaceful religion; but the attention a person is getting just because he is a religious leader is not good and clearly shows favoring one religion over another. That should make the second religion upset. And, White House should not be doing it openly.

I am not aware of history of Tibet but just looking at the size this nation might have, I wonder if they caused trouble to small neighbouring countries

In yer face China!! I'm not one for religion but I have nothing against the Dalai Lama. He's never trying to force his religion down our throats. He keeps it to himself. I respect him for that. I don't respect China for imposing themselves on that country.

probably the nicest man in the world, the Dalai Lama wants dialogue and fruitful discussion, and respect. China every single time they denounce him, only show how backwards they really are and that they cannot change. Why do we trade with such winners? Oh, for a $4 hair dryer. China's protest reflects only our own massive ethical vaccuum. We can choose other democracies for cheap goods, Vietnam, India, etc. Pass on China.

When I went to China with a friend we had Dalai Lama pictures with us. Do not do that. It got us in trouble with the secret police. They took us a way for a while. Obviously too they went through our bags and saw we were studying Japanese, because they had a fluent speaker amongst them. Eventually let us go. The Lama should not announce where he is going and then he will not get any flack.

So this is the difference between informed Japanese and blocked Chinese.You know what,regarding Dalai Lama,we Chinese know nothing said by Dalai himself,we only hear that Dalai wants Tibet to be independent day after day which leads nearly all the Chinese angry so that all the people are surrounding CCP gain.Yes,of course,some people knows what the fact is,but we can not say anyting about this in any forum-most of such words will be blocked and directly deleted before they are shown.What is more,if your such opinion finally shown on any website and accidently has been saw by police,you may disappear forever.
