Tibet had been a part of China for centuries.

In his speech at the Lok Sabba in 1954, India's Socialist Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru said, Over the past several hundred years, as far as I know, at no time has any foreign country denied China's sovereignty over Tibet.

Back in the 40s, every sovereign nations at the time recognized Tibet as a part of China. That included, USA, UK, USSR, India.

Then, in the 50s because of the Korean war, USA accused China of invading Tibet, i.e. China invaded itself in 1950.

Please see State Department document below:

U.S. Policy Toward Tibet

The United States considers the Tibet Autonomous Region or TAR (hereinafter referred to as Tibet) as part of the People's Republic of China. This longstanding policy is consistent with the view of the entire international community, including all China's neighbors: no country recognizes Tibet as a sovereign state. Moreover, U.S. acceptance of China's claim of sovereignty over Tibet predates the establishment of the People's Republic of China. In 1942, we told the Nationalist Chinese government then headquartered in Chongqing (Chungking) that we had at no time raised (a) question over Chinese claims to Tibet.

There are now 400,000 web pages on Tibet.

Anybody ever ask who is behind it all.

Talking a closer look at these sites, one will find that most of these materials have originated from 3 main sources

(1) The Tibet Information Network (TIN), based in London

(2) Tibetan Center for Human Rights and Democracy, based in India.

(3) International Campaign for Tibet

All 3 organizations receive funding from the U.S. National Endowment For Democracy (NED), a CIA front specializing in psychological warfare. They are currently trying to overthrow the Gov of Venezuela.

For background info on NED please read:

News from these organizations are usually pick up by Reuters and AFP of Europe, Associated press of USA and Sidney Morning Herald in Australia. They eventually penetrate into the secondary markets all over the world.

The London based Tibet Information Network (TIN) also receives funding from the British Westminister Foundation For Democracy (WFD). WFD is a British equivalent of NED of USA. It is London's contribution to the Anglo-American propaganda war effort against China.

Few people will dispute the fact that TIN reports are highly biased, but when they are circulated by the world's leading media groups such Reuters or the Dow Jones (AP is member of DJ group) most readers will accept their reports without too much question.

Many TIN's reports are definitely lies. For example in this report it claimed that Chinese authority is doing house to house search for incense burners. ( It will take an oil tanker to keep all the incense burners in Tibet! This is only one of their more bizzare lies.

Still, people in the west seldom question the motives of people behind these reports.


Dalai Lama and the CIA

LOS ANGELES, Sept 15 (AFP) - The CIA gave the Tibetan exile movement 1.7 million dollars a year through much of the 1960s, including 180,000 dollars for the Dalai Lama, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

The funding was part of the Central Intelligence Agency's Cold War effort to undermine the governments of Communist nations, notably China and the Soviet Union.

How Repressive Is the Chinese Government in Tibet?
