A surprising uprising in Tibet.
Maybe not so surprising, given the amount of repression the Tibetians have received. However, they had long endured it until Monday.

Where will this go?
No where,the PLA will knock the hell out of them in short order. Just like the Burma Army did recently.

However,I think it is surprising. This is rather rare there,Tibetans aren't the most unruly subjects around historically.

I don't think so. Usually that is not the way PRC does things. Since Tiennamen Square, they usually back off, and act as though they have acquiessed. Then when things calm down, they individually go after anyone taking part in the demonstrations, by rounding them up and throwing them in jail. That way there is no public display of what they are doing.

Well, it is a little bit surprising still. But recent developments in Kosovo and other places might have inspired those who want to break off from China. The question is if there will be an avalanche of similar conflicts in other places in the world where minorities want to break off.

Let us hope that this conflict will be solved peacefully.

Seen the pictures on TV? Tibetan monks beating up Han, setting buldings, stores and cars ablaze? On our news the pics were followed by a statement by the Dalai Lama's spokesperson, talking about the peaceful people of his home on a quest for freedom. Tibetan demonstrations under their motley flag all over the world, some of the participants behaved a bit hysterically. Well, quite a lot, actually. Burning of Chinese flags and such. Thank God they are peaceful Buddhists, and not the violent Muslims of Uygurstan who don't want freedom from communist China, but an Islamic terror regime of their own. That's the reason we must not back them.
