Only religious extremists and Tibetan separatists can feel anything but heartfelt sorrow at the casualties caused by certain Tibetan monks and nuns committing self-immolation.

At a news conference after the closing of the annual session of the National People's Congress in mid-March, Premier Wen Jiabao said the central government is saddened by the horrific manner in which young Tibetan religious followers are being encouraged by overseas agitators to take their lives.

"We disapprove of the use of such an extreme way to interrupt and sabotage social harmony and we feel deeply grieved by their behavior," he said.

While local people in the Tibetan-inhabited areas in Sichuan province, Southwest China, have been grieved by such loss of life, some overseas separatist forces and Western media have been overjoyed by these suicides, rushing to publish on-the-scene self-immolation photos and the compensation available to the families of anyone who dies or is injured in such acts.

The Dalai Lama, who likes to portray himself as an advocate of "non-violence" and Tibet's "spiritual leader", has failed to appeal for an end to such acts and some of his clique have hailed those who set themselves alight as "heroes".

The so-called chief kalon of the self-proclaimed "central Tibetan administration" in Dharamshala, India, knows more about the United States than about China, but he has claimed the acts are protests at the central government's "blank promises" to develop the vast plateau, which was yoked under serfdom for centuries, into a socialist paradise and preserve Tibetan ethnic character and customs. He linked such self-immolations to the exiled elite's customary accusations of ethnic repression, religious persecution and cultural genocide, which they habitually use to promote their separatist agenda.

The truth is to accelerate the development of the Tibet autonomous region and Tibetan-inhabited areas in neighboring provinces and improve the living conditions of the local people, the central government has implemented and continues to implement positive measures to boost development. Dominated in recent history by the Dalai Lama and his clique until the 1950s, Tibet remains one of the country's most underdeveloped regions.

And in addition to its efforts to promote local economic development and preserve the environment and ecology, the central government has also paid full respect to religious freedom and provided funds to renovate local old monasteries and include monks and nuns into the country's social security and healthcare network.

But to create the illusion of religious persecution in the Tibetan-inhabited areas, some separatist Tibetan forces have persuaded certain impressionable young people to sacrifice their lives in an attempt to discredit the central government's long-established ethnic and religious policies in Tibet and negate the enormous progress made in the region. In so doing, they seek to internationalize so-called "Tibetan independence".

The reality is different. For example, in the Aba Tibetan and Qiang autonomous prefecture, which has witnessed such self-immolations, there are 42 Tibetan Buddhist monasteries with 5,226 registered monks and nuns who enjoy full freedom in their religious activities.

The self-immolations have also caused grave concerns in Tibetan Buddhist circles; if not stopped they not only cost lives but also threaten social stability as they subvert the tenets of Buddhism.

Yet those of the Dalai Lama's separatist clique continue to instigate such extremist acts and to orchestrate violent riots in Tibetan-populated areas under the pretext of preserving Tibetan traditional culture and maintaining the freedom of Tibetan Buddhism. Such activities pervert the ideals of Tibetan Buddhism and threaten social progress as well as the religion.

Whatever they say and do does not alter the fact that the Tibetan people want peaceful coexistence with the rest of the country and share the common aspiration for harmony and common development.

Nobody will actualy know what the Tibetan really think since we cannot hear them directly...
I wish we could talk about a Referendum on Tibetan's opinion but this is still an Utopia in today's China.
Let's keep in mind that some Han did self-immolate themself when they've been improperly expropriated... so seems there is some kind of problem, larger than the only tibetan's one.

And, Tibet separation, Xinjiang separation, Taiwan separation, Hong Kong's democratic forces (= forces for leaning towards HK separation) and any other trouble that's brewing in China, i.e., the Jasmine movement, the land disagreements, Ai Wei wei, and more, is in turn instigated by none other but the US (CIA agents)...  I'm now speculating that Mr. Bo of Chongqing might be more than that which meets the eye and that he just might have outside support. His deemed secret rendevou to the US Embassy is suspicious. His supposed Mao basis could but be nothing more but a smoke screen for something more serious -- possibly Lin Biao serious.
Putin's a killer. This was the claim made by Fox News journalist; Bill O'Reilly during his recent interview with Donald Trump. Trump's reply came in the form of a simple question. What, you think our country's so innocent?

Of course, any reaction to the great and perfect management of the Chinese leaders is just unthinkable.
Who would even conceive to criticize so much hapiness and joy in a country where solidarity and respect is at such a high level??
CIA might have even set people on fire and bring corruption and land expropriation into China to create unrest. Chinese people definitively have to keep an eye on the US if they want their problems solve!

But Mr Bo is a Maoist and a strong supporter of the return to the 60's moral, isn't he? So the people who asked him to resign are even more into moral and traditions?

They're 'instrumental' in it, no doubt. Anyway and finally, they've caught on to the message I suppose... I mean it's the right thing and it's the honorable thing for the movement to do setting their own members on fire instead of innocent nuns and monks... Using nuns and monks as political tools equals the same as how Qaida is using, exploiting, brain washing, kids who should be in college to do their dirty [martyr thing for them. It's a kind of cowardess/
