    The PRC is very PC, right?

    Hong Kong they got because the treaty time expired and the British had to leave. Tibet they invaded, Taiwan they say is part of China. Taiwan says that too though.

    And North Korea, they just don’t want to have to deal with that…

    Chinese claims to Tibet are not exactly new or terribly different from the way others operate. It’s kind of like the 19th century US take over of the territories of Native Americans. That doesn’t make it OK, of course.

    It’s always a good technique to know your own faults while never openly acknowledging them. Then you quickly accuse others of those faults.

    Get the mutual mud on the other side first and then keep piling it on to keep them off balance and on the defensive.

    And what about Xinjiang (Chinese for “New territory”), where the Uyghurs, a non-Chinese Turkic people used to be the majority?

    Hmm. Honey has learned something from Duke. Very disturbing…

    Is she ever going to get rid of that Mao suit?
    Someone wrote a book about how Nixon opened trade with China by agreeing never to attack China over Tibet, but I’ve been unable to recall who the author was.

    “and what about Xinjiang . . . the Uyghurs”

    Yes, the Uyghurs of Sharqi Turkistan, have been treated as badly by the Han as the Tibetans have been. But they have no celebrities defending them . . .

    It’s hard to feel sympathy towards Tibet, they were much worse off under the Dali Lama. And to top it all off, that slave owning tyrant gets to parade around the world and act like a pious saint for fun and profit.

    China only wants contiguous territory, as defined to be in continuous enlarging development. Or, in the old style,“All under Heaven…” China as the engulfing amoeboid form of political action.

    Actually the British only had to turn over the New Territory to China. They decided to turn over all of Hong Kong on the condition that it would remain autonomous from Beijing and that democracy would eventually be instituted.

    Well I certainly don’t condone imperialism, or war for any reason other than to save innocents. However, if we went back and returned all “illegally” conquered lands to their original owners, Greece would pretty much still rule Europe, etc – a historian would be better suited to write this post. The point is, I’m not sure whether that would have been a good or bad thing.

    Yeah Squoop, the undocumented immigrants would hate the Apaches more than Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
