Well I don't think the US is inflexible.  It just doesn't change fast enough.  But that is kind of the nature of things.  It takes generations to really change a whole societies perspective on  ...

Politics  ................  ?


So when your government honour and entertain the Dalai Lama it is appealing to all Americans that they should support this as an anti-China policy. Even to the point where the DL gets a peace medal for being part of a US aided military uprising    ..........   

Yet .........

They do not do the same for indigenous people's because there are no votes in an un-highlighted agenda  .... ..........

But why do they not highlight it  ...........

No money in it .......  ?

No kudos ......... ?

Or is it that Indians are not a great sell .............

I've told you over and over - the appeal of the DL has little to do with China.

He is a symbol, and americans love the DL.  Has nothing to do with China on why that is.

I don't know why that is such a hard concept to grasp.

We like warm and fuzzy - the DL gives us that warm and fuzzy feeling.

Do you not know what appeals to the american public by now?

No one in america would think that their respect for the DL was anti-china.

In fact, we are oblivious to the fact that it upsets china so much.

I still don't understand it.

Look, I am not making that up.

Go on an american forum and conduct a poll.

Find out for yourself.

The majority of americans no nothing and do not care about the china vs. dl thing.

So....if the whole purpose of honoring the DL to make china look bad, the campaign has been a big FAIL.

Just watch how you word the poll - don't word it to where you're just going to get a knee-jerk reaction.

ganzhuolin,

What has shocked me the most about coming to this forum was learning that the chinese had a problem with the DL.

I was shocked and continue to be shocked at what I see here.

I had no idea that there were these feelings.

I don't really comment much on those threads, I just don't have the knowledge about the subject to contribute intelligently.

But, I would like to understand why there is so much hatred there.

Very puzzling to me.

It is the worship from your media ........

Which leads you to believe the same things  .......

It's called manipulation ............
