I was quite curious to see what he had to say. He was positive, which is something I rarely am.
Today is the Dalai Lama’s birthday. Its also the day that Babs shit out Dubya too, but we won’t dwell on that darkness. Thanks to FranIAm for letting me know its the Dalai’s day..a man who practices what he preaches and brings light to all the dark corners in the world through his message of peace and non-violence. He isn’t planning any festivities however..not with all the bullshit going down in Tibet.
He is 73 years young today. Sure, its not really young, but the man is a spiritual guide to millions and we all need to keep him around on terra firma as long as possible.
Dubya could “leave this earth” this afternoon and the only person that would notice would be his dippy wife, and methinks she would be downright happy if he vaporized immediately.
The Dalai would like nothing better than peace and autonomy in Tibet..but alas, the Chinese broke off talks. Fuckers..Hope China chokes on the Olympics..because I know the athletes will..worse air in the world there..
I hope we will see peace in his lifetime..but I ain’t holding my breath on that.
The government of China, who has tossed all media from Tibet and imposed a news blackout, is trying now to spin a little damage control
on what is happening in Tibet. A Thai torchbearer for the 08 Olympics, to be held in China, has withdrawn in protest of China’s actions in Tibet. Who exactly is to blame for the unrest in Tibet?
Why the Dalai Lama of course! At least that is the way the Chinese media is spinning it. From the AP writeup linked above:
“The Dalai clique is scheming to take the Beijing Olympics hostage to force the Chinese government to make concessions to Tibet independence,” it said.
The attacks on the Dalai Lama have been aimed at further demonizing him in the eyes of the Chinese public, which strongly supports the Olympics. The Dalai Lama, who advocates nonviolence and denies being behind the March 14 riots in Lhasa, asserted Sunday that he has supported China’s hosting of the summer Games.
If that doesn’t do it, they are also blaming..cough..Nancy Pelosi for all that ails China with regard to Tibet. From the AP article:
The official Xinhua New Agency, meanwhile, published a commentary bashing Pelosi, a fierce critic of China who on Friday visited the Dalai Lama at his headquarters in India, where she called China’s crackdown “a challenge to the conscience of the world.”
Xinhua accused Pelosi of ignoring the violence caused by the Tibetan rioters. “‘Human rights police’ like Pelosi are habitually bad tempered and ungenerous when it comes to China, refusing to check their facts and find out the truth of the case,” it said.
The Human Rights police? Damn skippy..China is one of the worst offenders of human rights on our planet. Sick bastards can’t accept the responsibility of their own actions. Reminds me of a drug addict..its always someone else’s’ fault.
