    Reader comments on Tibet: Cry of the Snow Lion

    Subject: Truth in Tibet
    Date: Sep 22, 2004
    Sender: H YangPrevious | Next

    Comparing with the European people treated the American Indians, the Chinese treated the Tibetans too kind. If Chinese eliminate the most Tibetans in 1750(Chinese first conquered Tibet in Qing Dynasty in late 1750, not communist) just like the Europeans eliminated American Indians 200 years ago, none will drum for Tibet independence now. In Tibet, the Tibetan race got high chance to go to the university than Chinese race, the Tibetan race got subsidy that Chinese race don't have, the Tibetan race got less years in Jail for murdering than Chinese race. Is Chinese Government spoiled the richness of Tibet and its people? Chinese didn't receive one cent tax from Tibet 40 years ago. Chinese subsidy 3/4 of the food consumption and revenue in Tibet. Chinese build the roads network for Tibet. There is not a signal mile bituminous macadam before the communist came. As late as 1953, of the area's population of 1.25 million, more than 700,000 were serfs, and the others are monks and landlords. In the other world, Chinese saved Tibet from the dark age. In the ages of culture revolution, that is not only the disaster for Tibet culture, but it's the disaster for all Chinese culture. However, comparing with the other areas in Chinese, Tibet got the less destructions. At least, they can still have religions. The americans and western people always blame the Chinese occupied Tibet, but how many innocent people they killed in Vietnam, Cambodia 30 years ago, and how many innocent people are having been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq now. When Osama bin Laden made 911 in NY, they call him Terrorist. When Dala Lama ordered his people to kill innocent Chinese residents and burn their houses in Lhasa street in 1989, they call him "Sadhu". No offend to anyone here, just put some truth. Personally, I don't like the Communist Party ruling China and myself are educating in a western country. But in my opinion, if u really wanna know about Tibet, go there and have a look. Don't judge it by a jaundiced documentary.

    Cry of the Snow Lion

    This documentary is such a powerful one that President of US should watch it with a sense of urgency rather spoiling $$$ and human life in Irag and Afganistan. What a documenty that this couple made with truthfulness. As a Nepalese citizen, Tibet and Tibetans are very much close to us. It is the Chinese Government that is spoiling the richness of Tibet and its people.
