Beijing & Dharamsala: Propaganda from Both Sides

 

http://www.zonaeuropa.com/02155.htm

 

This is an excellent blog posting by a Chinese-American commentator on the Tibet issue.  It’s very long but highlights the dramatic divide of opinion between the East and West, as well as the role of the propaganda machinery of both Beijing and Dharamsala (Dalai Lama’s residence in India) that distort the history of Sino-Tibet relations.  That’s why there are only two views on Tibet – both mutually antagonistic and extremist - and both presenting drastically different interpretations even on the most basic facts.
