but i just want to point out tibet is the only country in the worldthat is occupied by a foreign countryHuh? Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, in some way (still) Germany...
I'm Canadian and our government is not involed in Iraq so I cannot comment on that however I do know that foreign troops are in Afghanistan at the request of the Afghan government so therefore Afghanistan is not occupied. Whether you agreed with the NATO invasion or not. Palestine does not currently exist as soveriegn nation (because they won't stop blowing themselves up long enough to negotiate)so there can technically be no occupation of a Nation that does not exist. Finally any foriegn troops in Germany are there as part of a NATO (Noth Atlantic Treaty Organization) agreement so that would also not be an occupation.
We can thank Nixon and Old man bush for this!Anfd for those who dont know Bush was in the Nixon administation.
As I'm pretty sure you are Democratic in your leanings I should point out that it was your boy Clinton who allowed the genocide in Rawanda to take place. I would also encourage everyone to read the book "Shake Hands With the Devil" (If you can't bother to actually read the book instead of just watching the movie then you have no bussiness taking part in this sort of discussion) It was written by the Canadian General in charge of the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Rawanda during the genocide. It points out alot of uncomfortable facts that we in the Western world need to deal with.
