If Tibet had Oil, or Fuel, I am sure the world would of sent the troops in then to help the tibetans.



But they do. Qiangtang has enormous oil & gas reserves.

Hmmm - probably not with China's nuclear capability.

I doubt it, their armies are on the point of collapse already. Not long ago the government was advising the Chinese against allowing independent trade unions, as if the Chinese workers got decent wages and conditions, they wouldn't be selling their goods so dirt cheap. That's how concerned they are about human rights.

China is a bully, and this country has helped it to become powerful by sending work over there to be done on the cheap .
Its hard to find anything that is not made in China now.
Also I hated seeing the Chinese torch ''minders'' on the streets of London.
It made our police force look fools .
My father had a saying he often quoted
When the sleeping dragon awakes, the world beware.

One of Nostradumus's supposed predictions was that at the end of the last century the Chinese would overrun the world.

They may not have done it militarily, but they are doing their best to do it economically. ;D
