How Many Monks Will Have to
Die Before the World Gets Involved in Tibet?
The number of Tibetan monks who
have died has now reached the sickening number of 25.
The tragic situation there seems out of
control and unstoppable.
The only hope for Tibet is for
people all over the world to unite and face down China,
declaring them to be the
and tyrants we all know them to be.
The Unites Nations should step
in and be joined by every democratic nation in the world.
The people of Tibet have
suffered with no help from the outside world for over 50 years now.
The United States has not
intervened for two reasons,
there is no oil in Tibet and we
want/need China to keep writing us checks.
The chance of any of this
happening is extremely small, because no one wants to offend China.

This years' anniversary of the 1959 Chinese invasion of
was yet another somber reminder of
the ongoing global demonstrations of opposition to the
communist country's absolute ingestion
of a people and a culture that they never can, nor ever
will, truly understand or appreciate.
This beautiful story written by the translator for His
Holiness the Dalai Lama shares both
the pain and grief of the Tibetan people, those who stayed
and those who left, who ache
for their country and their holy leader to be
returned to the way it used to be.

The Government of China has
sentenced a Tibetan monk to 11 years in prison,
for supposedly contributing to
the suicide of a fellow monk in March.
This is completely unacceptable.
The world simply must stand up
for and speak up for the people of Tibet,
as their tongues have been excised by the
strong arm of China.
Most Tibetans understand that there may be severe reprisal
for opposing the
will of the Chinese Government and live in fear for their
There must be some country on
this planet who is not indebted to China, who can
tell them that they are bullies
and then they must refuse to do business with them.
Of course, we in America cannot
do this because we are indebted to them for billions
of dollars in loans and are afraid to speak out
against their inhumane treatment of not
only their own people, but so
many others as well.
China Sentences Tibetan Monk
August 27, 2011
The current unrest in Tibet has
yet another squeeze by China,
as three Tibetan monks
are being put on trial for homicide in
the suicide death of a 16
year old monk in March.
The suicide death last week of
another monk, has only led to the
noose around Tibet's neck
becoming even tighter, as the Tibetan
people continue to be cut off
from the rest of the world.
China Trying Monks
August 16, 2011
Yesterday in the Sichuan
Province of China, another young Monk
chose to end his life, by setting himself on fire.
This latest suicide by 29 year
old Tsewang Norbu,
who begged for the Dalai Lama
is only the latest in a series
of similar monk deaths.
China as expected, has cut the
area off from the outside world,
who might try to
interfere or cause trouble.

As more and more countries
embrace the changes they see
happening all around them in

Bless you all.

What began nearly a month ago
in Cairo is now spreading throughout
the Arab World, including
Algeria, Libya, Bahrain and Yemen.
With the smell of Freedom and
Democracy so close by,
these other Countries want
their turn now!

The whole world is carefully
watching Egypt in their quest for Democracy.
Their success gives many other
Countries the hope that they too can have Freedom.
Democracy has never had such an
opportunity to blossom and seeing
that primarily peaceful, non
violent protests do work,
others who seek Democracy and
Freedom can now follow.
Gandhi would be pleased with
this demonstration of non violent protest.

The world is now being barraged
with minute by minute reports of the devastation in Haiti.
What is alarming is that many
of the world's richest Countries have done little if anything about the
situation, which is nearly
biblical in the amount of death and destruction to the small country.
Americans as usual, responded
with everything necessary to comfort the overwhelmed
people of Haiti, but where is
the help from the rest of the world?
We are no longer the richest
Nation on Earth, in fact we are now a Nation in debt
to other Countries for
amounts of money we cannot not even imagine.
At what point do we say to all
those who have done little,
"hey, how about some help
Our country has just been
through a historical depression/recession and is barely
hanging on, but yet when
the world calls, we respond, like always,
with everything we can send or
bring to those who are suffering.
Can we ask others to share the
burden with America?
Or are we afraid to offend?

On this 50th Anniversary of the
takeover by China,

Tibetan Monks protest once again and
still remain hostages of the Chinese.
The Dali Lama says "China makes
life Hell for Tibetans".
Today in Bombay, many died and
more were hurt by
senseless acts of
In a time when much of the
world is thinking of family,
holidays and cultural customs,
we are once again forced to
remember that there are still
those for whom hate
remains all consuming.
The sadness and rage the world
is feeling towards these cowards
who kill innocents
blindly in the name of their beliefs, cannot turn us
away from the goodness that is
celebrated at this time of the year.
If Gandhi were alive, he would
begin fasting and remain
steadfast in his belief that
violence must be met with
not more hate, but with
kindness, peace and love.
If only we had a leader
somewhere in the world right now
who could step up and
show the way.
The economic crisis in the
United States, a direct result of
greed and gluttony, has now become a Global
Banks and leaders around the
world are feeling the same crush of
public pressure as those
are here to respond to the current situation.
One possible benefit of this
disaster is that some of the
world leaders are now sitting
down and talking about how we
can work together to find a
solution to these economic problems.
Any opportunity to have this
happen is a good thing,
in spite of the dire reasons
that may have caused it.
Now if only these same leaders
could also find a way to turn
the conversation around to
Global peace and understanding.
The US elections are closing in
and the rest of the world
waits to see who they will be
dealing with next.
For those of us here in
America, we are not really
sure who or what to believe

running for office in this
country have one primary

The Olympics in China focused a
spotlight on this country,
permitting a Global
inspection of sorts, allowing the world a
view of what is going on in the
most populous nation on Earth.
The Olympics went as well as
possible considering the situation,
China kept its thumb on any who
might cause embarrassment
and the world saw little to
complain about in the human rights arena.
The only hiccup was the
possibility of underage athletes which the
Government quickly denounced
and showed proof of this being untrue.
Today, China is as it was
before the Olympics,
the people still do not have
the freedom to speak.

fodder for Global Media

Once again today, as for the past sixty years,
exiled Tibetans were
convincingly reminded that they
have little reason to hope that their
homelands will ever be returned to
them by the Chinese Government.
As this is written, Monks have
been taken prisoner, some have been killed
and Tibetans march in protest in the streets of Lhasa, the capital of Tibet,
fully aware that they are outnumbered by the powerful
and have virtually no chance of
reclaiming their ancestral homes.

In response to this latest ugly
power move on the Chinese chessboard,
the Dali Lama, the US
State Department and Human Rights groups
around the world have rattled their verbal sabers at them,
but China knows that none is really a threat
in this Global game.
The correct response by the
world to these newest attacks in Tibet
must be that it would be
unconscionable for any country
to consider attending the summer
Olympics in China.
"Boycott China" should
furthermore be the mantra
of the masses for those who
have no voices.
America needs to get out of the
warm, comfy bed with
the Chinese and set an moral
example for the world.
While China is buying our
silence with their money,
their inferior, dangerous
products threaten our children,
our pets and our society in
Can you say RECALL!
In the meantime, America is
losing not only the respect
of the rest of the world, but
her own people as well.
