  • Tibet was a sovereign nation

    Ancient Tibet was a sovereign nation for many years prior to China's original annexation of Tibet which ended in 1912. There are treaties that support this fact. Also, Tibet was a sovereign nation from 1912-1950 when the newly communist People's Republic of China illegally invaded the peaceful nation of Tibet. You can prove that Tibet was sovereign because of diplomatic relations it had with bRitish India as it negotiated borders etc. China's invasion of Tibet was illegal under international law and China is still responsible for that violation today because it is still a one-party state. Next, Tibet was an extremely an isolated nation for hundreds of years due to political and geographical reasons. Political: Tibet was surrounded by huge powerful nations; British Inda, Communist China, and Communist Russia. So isolation for Tibet was the only way to ensure its sovereignty. Geographical: The Himalayas. Yes, Feudalism was a major aspect in Tibet and it was wrong however the Chinese government does a fantastic job of exploiting the system to appear to be more ruthless than it actually was. Read "Tibet: A History" or "Bhuddas Warriors." Also, keep in mind that during the cultural revolution the Chinese government killed millions of its own civilians so it's no angel. Finally, it is every nation's and persons moral obligation to fight for freedom in Tibet. It was a sovereign quiet but structured nation that was illegally invaded by China. China committed genocide and cultural genocide inside Tibet. Tibetans are currently outnumbered in their own nation. Tibet experienced its first famine in recorded history after China invaded. China destroyed monasteries, temples, shrines, manuscripts, and etc. China is destroying Tibet. Also, the Tibetan government in exile functions better than many nations today.

  • Tibet should be an Independent State

    I think that Tibet should have the option of becoming an independent state. If the people of Tibet wish to become independent of China, they should be allowed to. The people of Tibet has a different culture from most of China, and have a rich history. These reasons are why I beleive that Tibet should be able to be an independent state.

  • Yes, Tibet should be independent. The people who live there have expressed this preference strongly.

    Tibet should be an independent state because the people who are indigenous there desire it to be so. Tibet is not tied to China by heritage, religion, or culture. The way that China has tried to co-opt the process of choosing the next Dalai Lama simply underscores that China desires to control Tibet, not allow it to flourish in its own way. The scores of monks who have self-immolated recently shows how strongly Tibetans desire to be independent.

  • Yes, Tibet has been mistreated by China for decades

    I believe that Tibet should be an independent state because the region has suffered through countless attempts of oppression by the Chinese government over the last 50 years. Tibet is a small, peaceful country which could perhaps thrive with its strong draw for tourists and foreign visitors. The people of Tibet deserve independence from the harassment of China.

  • Tibet Has No Strategic Value

    Tibet has little strategic value to China. The area has no oil, no mining, no gold. The only value it serves is a buffer between China and India. Since the world is at peace, China has little threat from India's democratic government. There won't be any invasions anytime soon. Tibet should be free as it is ethnically very different from other parts of China.

  • Tibetan independence is only plausible, for those who don't think about the matter critically.

    Tibet in the 1950s was as advanced as Feudal Age Europe, with a pathetic 35 years of life expectancy, 90% enslaved population, and absolutely no educational institutions nor women rights whatsoever.

    Only with China's rule did Tibetans, for the first time in their civilization, have their own language and scripts taught to them in schools, something Tibet never really had and not being ruled by aristocrats who treated their own people like beasts of burden. Many people view Tibet as a peaceful region needlessly oppressed by Chinese invaders whereas factually, Tibetans have invaded and attacked the Chinese and have even accumulated huge sums of debts acquiring arms and troops. Thus the argument of Tibetans being needlessly oppressed by China is unrealistic.

    The view of Tibet under China's rule has been completely destroyed by rather one-sided and irrational media and journalism.

  • No, i don't think tibet should be independent

    Why? Tibet was a theocracy prior to 1950, and the Dalai lama wants to claim back all the "mythical lands" for Tibetans, which isn't possible right now, no matter the pressure from the UN or "Human rights" watch. And I'm thinking about the poor half-bloods (Han or Tibetans), if separated, where would they live? Like another one said, tibet free, will be another Israel in Mid-East. And if freed, the Mongols, the Manchus will not be happy about it... Because Tibetans owe them lands... And tibetans aren't 100% native tibetans, at least part-han, part-tibetan. So yeah.

  • It will be a disaster worse than the Creation of Israel

    One thing people don't know is, that Tibet had been a part of China for almost 900 years. During this 900 years, Many Tibetans had emigrant out of their homeland and non-Tibetans had immigrant into Tibet.
    The "Tibet" that Dalai Lama claim, is based on the greatest expansion of Tibetan Regime in about 800AD, only about 40% of its population are ethnic Tibetans, and many of them are not "pure" Tibetans-they having one parent and another non-Tibetan parent. Some towns that Dalai Lama claim to be a part of "Tibet" only have 3% of its population being Tibetan.
    Dalai Lama's government had repeated said "Tibet belongs to Tibetans only" and that they will "give Tibet back to Tibetans" and remove all what he consider "non-Tibetan". That will be a disaster worse than the creation of Israel- because independence of Tibet will not only mean many people will be forced to move out of their homeland but also many families will be separated.

  • Yes because right to freedom😊

    I see some concerned people out here who are worried that Tibet won't fare well without the supportsupportof china.Don't you see what the chinese are doing to the Tibetans.Do you think it's right harassing women men children and old in such a way??Leave alone the people they don't even spare the animals.They have gone around killing the Lhasas the sacred dog of Tibet😖.How cruel can one get.I wish to slam those people right on the face.Heights of of cruelty.And for all those doubting the abilities of the tibetians..Remember that no nations started big.They all had to go through pits and falls to finally emerge into a grand nation.China sure has got will and power but without a "heart".Free Tibet.Peace out😊✌
