The Tibetan army prepare to defend themselves against China in 1950. Source.
This is what US President Barack Obama said when the Dalai Lama visited the White House in February 2014:
“The President reiterated his strong support for the preservation of Tibet’s unique religious, cultural, and linguistic traditions and the protection of human rights for Tibetans in the People’s Republic of China….In this context, the President reiterated the U.S. position that Tibet is part of the People’s Republic of China and that the United States does not support Tibet independence….”
Note the difference in tone when the president speaks of the Palestinian Arab bid for independent statehood:
“The Palestinians deserve to be free in their own land.”
“The status quo in Palestine is unsustainable.”
Why has President Obama never made similar statements about Tibet?…
