I am not sure what was the meaning of the e-mail Richard sent mentioning the date of the invasion of Tibet. We all know historically when Tibet was invaded and the indifference from nations all over the world since that time. Nothing was done to interfere against this barbarian Chinese act. And still until today nothing is done. I must say that so far Sarkozy is one of the leaders whot has a profound sympathy for the Tibetan cause, but China is always creating problems with him because of his position.
Yesterday a theosophist, who is also a strategy manager, delivered a very interesting lecture in the T.S. in Greece. It was a speech which basically tried to question what we theosophists can do in practical ways for a better world. He presented a international view on several matters, and pointed out the eminent danger of a third world war in the next 40 years. This according with some political studies and analyses on his field.
Between other things one of the point of major tension, is between China and India. See experts analyses concluded that this tension will increase and get worst. What really shocks me most is to know that the matter related to Tibet will get worst proportions as China will increase its claims for Arunachal Pradesh. . This claim wont be left behind, wont be forgotten by China and according to political experts is most likely to lead to a war. Of course we are not talking about a today war but a future war. So politic leaders knows that. This is abc info (basic, obvious). Why they dont interfere with Tibet and try to find ways for a better solution? If the leaders keep on with their indifference for the Tibetan cause, they will not only be agreeing with the genocide and elimination of an entire culture, but also endangering India and endorsing a future war.

> Dear friends,
> Its very sad the position Dalai Lama was placed by China and the
horrible lies and accusations perpetuated by the chinese against the
Dalai Lama. China also keeps on with their claims about the Indian
territory Arunachal Pradesh. The Chinese are pressing the Indian
government to not recognize any valid government of Tibet in Exile.
As the situation gets worst, China reinforces the tension with the
claim that states of Arunachal Pradesh used to belong to Tibet and as
so belong to China.
> We know the Chinese government has a strong campaign against
anything related to Tibetan Buddhism and to Dalai Lama. Chineses
working for the Chinese government are to be found everywhere in the
internet, and are the very first to make such kind of attacks. China
is becoming more agressive with its politics and if other nations do
not raise their voice against it, things promisses to get worst.
Unfortunatly on 15 of November the British Chief Minister recognized
the Chinese sovereignty over Tibet.

blogs of anonymous persons defending China and making horrible
accusations against the Dalai Lama and Tibet. The Chinese aggressive
approach is not only centered on Tibet but underground they also
work against Tibetan Buddhism. I am afraid that pretty soon the
Chinese claims over Indian Territories will also increase.
> Some leaders must assume a very strong position against China
claims and policies. Otherwise we shall soon witness much worst
The genocide of Tibetan people perpetrated by Communist China for
more than 50 years is a very clear evidence that for the Western
liberal democracies, led by the EU and the US, "human rights" is a
nothing but a useful political slogan which serves to deflect
attention from the fundamental fact that the 1.3 billion strong
Chinese market is inded the central interest of the "freedom-loving"
Call me a skeptic if you want, but I am convinced that not even
Barack Obama would have the guts (or the interest) to take on China
on the issue of Tibet.
Western liberal democracies continue to have blood on their hands.
Every time they renew their "Most favoured nation status" with China
they do so on the background of torture, killing and raping of many
Tibetan Buddhist nuns, as well as of monks and activists. They have
condoned and continue to condone one of the most brutal political
regimes in modern history. And they know it.
When the Dalai Lama officially announced that he had given up on
negotiating with China he was just being honest. You can't negotiate
with people that do not take you seriously.
The Chinese government may soon have a surprise in their hands when
the more radical wings of the Tibetan movement call for full
independence from China, instead of autonomy, and takes the struggle
to a new political level, in which nothing is excluded.
So far for Tibet and the Tibetans Kali Yuga has won. So far.
