Tibet- Another Perspective

The time for protests was when China attacked and conquered Tibet. The international community including our own government allowed it to happen without a murmur. In our case we didn’t want to disrupt the flow of cheap toys, etc. to America.
There is falseness to the current turmoil. It was started to bring pressure on China as the Olympics nears. All it will do is irritate and take away from the joy of competition by the athletes and the spectators. President Carter denied our athletes from going to Moscow. He was wrong.
It was also wrong for China to take over this peaceful country. They should have felt the wrath of all peace loving nations. I would still hope that their sovereignty could be restored. There is little chance for that unless extreme financial pressure was brought to bear. In the interim, let the games begin.
