It is still unclear what impact the crisis in Tibet will have on the prospect of talks between the Dalai Lama and China’s leaders.
What is clear, though, is that the options are changing. Many Tibetans are deeply frustrated. After decades of waiting, they see little sign of progress.
I love now the monks are planning on using the Olympics to piss off the Chinese. Anything that pisses off the Chinese is good, although the Chinese do make excellent pirates.
