As some of you may now i am an active advocate for those who are living under the thumb of oppression. I am going to take a stand and fight for Tibetan rights, because our government would rather support a peoples that want us dead (such as iraq).
I became inspired and well educated when Lamas (Tibetan monks) ccame to visit my city. I became friends with the lamas, and soon realized that a people of peace are being slughtered with destructive mechanisms, such as torture and prolonged prison sentences for minuscule reasons.
My question is, why has the US intervened with foreign conflict for so long (the war in the Philipines, the spanish-american war, the current war in iraq) but we fail to stand as an ally against Chinas Imperialist rule in Tibet.
i have a few answers for that:
The US sees no benefit for supporting Tibet in their time of need. The US sees that although Tibet is rich in natural resourses, we trade with other countries with little hassel.
The war in iraq is a big step in the US's original 'anglo-saxon' imperialist movement. The US has tried to annex many self-suffiaciant, independant countries (Hawaii is one, well the US already has them though) mainly because of the resourses that they had to offer. The US sought an oppourtunity with Cuba, thus the spanish- american war, to annex Cuba because of the sugar-cane trade.
The war in iraq at this point is most apprently futile, but the US still keeps on pushing for a democratic government when in reality the US is just looking for another country to trade with without being looked down on by the rest of the world stealing resourses (such is the case with China)
i have many more reasons..........
this post is not a debate post, nor is it to bash China as a whole. it is intended for the sole purpose of educating the peoples of the world on Tibets suffering peoples and the imperialist governements of the US and China.
oh gotta go, the bell rang

If you want to educate wouldn´t you need other opinions to make this more a more neutral text?

I don't know where you posted this originally, but does the China forum not make sense for a discussion about Chinese matters? The Chinese have considered Tibet a part of China for centuries; saying "free Tibet" to them would be like telling Americans to "free Massachussetts."

The human rights violation is the biggest Chinese issue that is quietly swept under the table. China is a huge power, both economically and militarily, and America, who has already spread her vast resources too thin, needs all the allies she can get. Getting on China's back right now for Tibet's sake, or for the sake of human rights in general, could dissolve an economic and political partnership that is currently extremely benefiticial (especially considering the current six-point talks with Korea). I'm afraid you have the wrong impression of how foreign policy works; it's never been about doing the right thing, or helping out the underdog. It's about protecting our interests.

Also, I'm surprised at how bitterly you take a simple administrative action to correct your mistake. The entire reason we have subforums is so discussions can be held in the appropriate place. This "screw you guys, I'm going home" attitude is childish and overly dramatic. Do try to grow up a bit before you decide to come back.

Don't get arsey because you posted in the wrong forum. If you notice the music threads have their own forum and are posted there. If they are posted in the wrong forum they are moved to the correct one. Same goes with any other threads, which this was one.
Another piece of advice. Lose the attitude just because you made a mistake.

oh jeeze i really did it this time....today is a good day, yesterday i felt like everybody was attacking and trying to drag me by the hair right into a volcanoe of problems. no real reason to post some asinine vent session.
Mycernius: no i was not mad because you fixed some minuscule problem, well not even a problem really. no offence to you at all.
nice gaijin: GROW UP!! says who?:wave: i could improve on my social skills a bit though.
the main reason i posted this thread was to educate, what i know, and to recieve feed back. so i can learn and exchange information and blahblahblah.....
i get overly antsy when i post and put thought into something i am really passionate about, and it seems my voice goes unheard.
i don't expect everybody to take interest. just a little guidance and wisdom from others.
listening to others can have a mild, or huge, impact on ones perseption.

i have many emotions heating up the kettle and i am wondering why it is so important for me to apologize and try to justify my reasoning....
although we are all lands away, it matters to me that i manage to maintain amity, thus i am the libra (a very unbalanced one at that) i feel obligated to please, without destroying my dignity with bouncing betties.
well not really please, but i tend to think that it is important that people hear me. and of course i will have to work really hard to bring out any significant change and to be a part of the jref forum community, not just a regular visitor.
