The momentum of conversation
Over 1.4 million ethnic Tibetans have died since the Chinese occupation of Tibet in the 50s. Since that occupation the world has known that this place is the site of some of the worst autrocities of human violence and repression. Thousands still suffer today, dieing in the streets of Lhasa for freedom and independence. China once again bringing out its arsenal to squash these rebellions, just like in 1959. Will the Tibetan's die in vain this time? Or will the world finally hear their protests and appeal to their plight.
The answer seems jumbled, though the public is turning to protest aroudn the world it seems tha the governments that are supposed to represent their views are too afraid to beat down the influence of China. In essence this shows how much of a strangle hold China has on the world economy. No one, not even the US seems to want to challange its obvious cruelty in Tibet.
It seems that instead of herelding hope this century's second olympic flames will bring fear and death to the general public.
