Then we can conclude, that all americans need to leave USA, except the original natives?

Or - we can kick of by refusing to let USA into the OL, because it is the major obstacle on this panet to a clean environment?

I think the reader can reach a conclusion from this.
I would say, that the law of karma is not what most persons consider it to be.

  You will have to ask DK for his take on what is happening in his 
  country if he is still alive after the chinese wholesale slaughter of 
  monks throughout Tibet since they invaded and occupied that country.

  I cant back it up with passages from the SD or the Treatise but Tibet 
  is not part of China ethnically and China took over by force of arms 
  and karma demands that they leave. If they dont see it that way its 
  up to the civilized world to throw them out like we have with many 
  other petty tyrants before them. 

  We can kick it off with a boycott of the olympic games that are 
  supposed to be played in their polluted capitol of Bejing. Om mani 
  padme hum for a free Tibet!
