Why would china care about this?

The DL has a relationship with the US that goes far beyond china.  Do americans even associate the DL with china?  He doesn't live there...hasn't lived there since a child right?  So...he has as much to do with china as I do as far as I'm concerned.  We like him for other reasons that are totally independent of china.

So why should china a care about this?

Dalai Lama is responsible for crimes against humanity. To me it seems almost ridiculous and shameful ...

What crimes are these?

All state propaganda is by necessity one dimensional. Communist propaganda more so than others.

wouldn't trust Obama as far as I could through him. wonder what his true intentions are in meeting with the DL? one thing is for sure...almost certainly up to no good. don't let them get to you China, that's what they want, when they get a reaction from you it's like stripping you of your power, don't let them do that. if no reaction is forthcoming that might piss them off, and that's when you strip them of THEIR power!...just sayin' ~Love/Peace/Unity
in accord with the Tao : )

Having attended one of the Dalai Lama's speeches at NSU in Florida, I find a lot of oddities towards not only your claims but also that of China's. It is true that the Dalai Lama is a supporter of tibetan independence, and that there are sects of his religious group that tend to be more radical. But the man I saw speak was not the demon you paint him to me, and consistently has not made tremendous pushes towards violence of any kind, as much of the Chinese State Run media claims. Keep in mind something, there are several portions of China that do not, or did not, want to be under the Communist Governments rule. The western region, Tibet, Taiwan, are to name a few.

As for tibet, yes they have seen growth and such, but what many don't see is that a great deal of them were dispersed through government programs, to all corners of China, and hence they gradually lost touch with their own culture. Modern day tibet is host to more Han Chinese, to be honest. Such an irrefutable fact doesn't indicate integration of any kind, it is cultural destruction over time (Not like in Chinas great leap forwards or cultural revolution.)
