I respect your bravery, because you post this kind of thread in this forum. But I find that your views are completely based on western medias, which are also not always objective and balanced. If you know Chinese, I would like to recommend you a book named '天葬-西藏的命运', which depicts the history and relation of T-i-b-e-t on an objective stance. Hope this book can help you learn more about T-i-b-e-t and thus form a real balanced view.

Good point Emu, I forgot about the Nobel 'peace' price.  But wasn't there something....?   Ahhh, now I remember:

Didn't Yasser Arafat also win a Nobel 'peace' price?

Maybe in Oslo they should change the committee members who nominate such famous personalities. If not, the next one could well be Osama bin Laden.

Of course, thanks for reminding me.

Arafat got considerable media coverage when he was admitted to hospital, why not the DL in CD ?

Because Arafat's dead will affect the western interest in the region.

Same as DL.

But not the same case as Thailand's Buddhist leader.

Thankyou for your response breezeeyang.
Thankyou also for your reading recommendation. Unfortunately I do not read or speak Chinese so I would not be able to take advantage of the perspective you mentioned.
Fortunately CD does provide such viewpoints in English, and there are other Chinese websites which provide a virtually identical perspective.
What I find missing is any dissent in the Chinese media, or alternative views from a Chinese perspective.
Yet, in the west, we can read a large number of viewpoints critical of the DL, from westerners.
So think you are a little mistaken in implying that the western media only provides a one viewpoint. It most certainly provides alternative views and opinions and so in that respect it is far more balanced that what I've been able to find in China's official media.

I thank you, however, for your opinion. Even though it differs from mine you have responded in a positive and constructive way which is something sadly lacking from some contributors here.

Cheers
JB
