The Dalai Lama So the Dalai Lama was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal today and not surprisingly China acted childish in response caliming that US-Sino relations would be damaged. Of course, China has always been quick to blame their problems on the Dalai Lama and others associated with liberating Tibet from Chinese occupation and oppression.
Perhaps one of the more amusing accusations by the Chinese government is that the Dalai Lama is a Tibetan seperatist intent on destroying Chinese sovereignty. One, Tibet was invaded by Communist China’s military. It never was a part of modern China. This leads to point two: China has no genuine sovereignty over Tibet except as an unwanted, unwelcomed, brutal invader and occupier.
