Najib Razak Malaysian Prime Minster: Hello Najib here.
John Kerry: Good, look buddy I …
NR: Who’s this?
JK: It’s Kerry, listen bud ….
NR: It’s 2am here!
JK: Look, we need to make sure that this bloody plane debacle doesn’t blow up any more than it already has. You are…
NR: We’re trying to get to the bottom…..
JK: Listen, Sunny, you remember what happened to Saddam for selling his bloody oil for f..n Euros, that sob.
NR: Yeah, he copped it badly, so did his country, 1.5 million dead and counting.
JK: Don’t get smart with me, sunshine, Malaysia’d be a pushover, believe me.
NR: We are cooperating as you’ve instr…
JK: Look, remember that desert fox Gaddafi, he proposed a Gold backed Dinar, some kind of an Islamic Currency, just the same crazy stuff your predecessor has proposed.
NR: Yes, we think that this would be…
JK: Do I have to remind you what happened to that bloody sob and his country, hu? Now they’re back tending sheep, Bedouin style, out in the desert, (laughter ensues) we almost completely turned that bloody upstart country back to desert. Serves him right, look buddy, anyone challenging the dollar will get it smack dab in the bulls eye.
NR: I understand, but what’s that got to do with….
JK: You just follow the script, we’ll deliver it to you every day, get that? Now at tomorrow’s press briefing over that darn plane don’t spill any more beans or (sniggering) you might deeply regret it. You know nothing, you need to check first, you will enquire, but don’t blather out any more compromising stuff.
NR: Our customs and religion don’t allow us to tell…
JK: F..k your customs, like I’ve said, you make one false move and basta. Those bloody CIA and Mossad spooks f…ed up again, just like 911, and you should know how credible that story turned out to be, we need to nip any truth emerging in the bud right away, get that?
NR: Well, that satellite ping is a dead giveaway, of cour….
JK: Just let our boys write the script for all your pressies and don’t answer any queries you can’t handle.
NR: There are always probing questions from the press and the Chinese are livid and are giving us a really hard…
JK: Just let me handle the Chinese, they’ve got the money but we’ve got the military, what do you think wins wars, hu?
NR: Money can buy anything.
JK: Not if you’re dead or living in caves, get that?
NR: It’s really late and I need…
JK: You be a good boy and we’ll look after you, we can just print off a few millions and no one will ever know (hysterical laughter) let the boys know your Channel Island account, ok!
NR: We really don’t work that way, it’s against…
JK: Well, look what happened to Chavez and his country or Assad in his desert, well, it’ll soon all be desert after we’ve finished, hmh well our proxy guys have finished with that upstart country. You know, that cancer of that Chavez guy, well how would YOU like to go then, we can give you any dose you like, cancer, incurable syphilis, ah sorry you Muslims guys don’t go for the loose ladies, do you, shame, Ebola and some really nasty stuff which kills you slowly, or a heart attack with a high energy pulse…
NR: Ok, ok, it’s breaking my heart but for the good of Malaysia I’ll cooperate with….
JK: That’s my boy, you know, the Israelis really want to use that twin plane for their false flag attack, these crazy guys really want Iran destroyed, and we have to do it for them, (sigh) well at least the defence industry will do very well out of it, I’m heavily invested, so should you Najib.
NR: Don’t really like to profiteer from death and destruction….
JK: One day you’ll learn how the world really works, you guys over there in Asia are off the planet, you’ve gotta make hay while the sun shines, get it? Paradise my arse, money’s no good up there (sarcastic laughter). So listen, you don’t know nothing, you will first check and no impromptu answers, just can’t trust you darn guys.
NR: We’ve lost a plane a lot of people, our image is tarnished, we’ve fallen out with our friends and now you..
JK: That’ll teach you to hold show trials finding our guys guilty of War Crimes; you know Bush, Blair, Netanyahu and that Aussie bloke Howard are seething and baying for your blood.
NR: We follow our conscience, we want a fairer world, that’s our cust….
JK: Listen Naji boy, does Allende, Gaddafi, Saddam, Correa, Assad, Castro, Chavez, Maduro, Ayatollah, and 60 others, mean anything to you, see we get some of them, and the others will always have to look over their shoulders, don’t be one of them sunny.
NR: We kept most of the stuff secret, but our opposition leader blurted out things about the radar which should have picked…..
JK: Don’t worry about that, our press, worldwide, is keeping quiet about anything inconvenient or revealing, zilch, nada, nothing. It’ll die a natural death, just like that decoy plane in the Gulf of Thailand, don’t worry my boy, that’s what we own the press for. (Laughter) We just can't have you finding that plane or the whole darn plot turns to custard and the Israelis will have to unload their copy.
NR:Who’s we, Kerry?
JK: I’ve gotta go now, the boss wants me to brief him on the war preps, and don’t forget to buy into Halliburton or Blackstone and Carlyle, (sarcastic laughter)
Ciao now, Naji, or whatever you say over there. (click)
Now for a serious analysis of all the known facts on the disappearance of MH370 click here:
The disappearance of MH370 is fraught with so many inconsistencies, retractions, denials and then reconfirmations it begs for a closer analysis and alternative answers to the official story line offered.
First, below a rough timeline of key events:
8th March 2014
12:41 Take off
1:07 to 1:37 ACARS off between these times
1:19 Last Words
1:21 Disappears from Radar
1:21 Transponder off
1:38 Other aircraft in area were asked to contact MH370 but received unclear reply due to “a lot of static”!
2:14 Malaysian Military radar tracks plane near Phuket
8:11 Last ping signal received by Satellite
There are several known facts which lend credence to a theory that the plane has been hijacked and flown to a destination for whatever reasons yet to be fully explained, but we’ll attempt to cover them.
MH370 shadowed SQ68 from Igrex Waypoint all the way to Pakistan/Afghanistan undetected by the pilot of SQ68 then veered off and landed on an unidentified airstrip under Taliban control, all undetected.
This has been soundly debunked as the plane would have to have flown all the way closer than 150m to the leading plane to be undetectable by radar. Radar resolution is good down to less than that and any deviation from such a close shadowing would have revealed the existence of two separate planes.
Also turbulence from the leading plane would make such an endeavour very difficult to maintain for many hours.
Pakistan has dismissed such a claim out of hand.
Terrain mapping by the pilots; flying low and hugging the terrain to evade radar detection to get to a point where it could shadow another plane. This has been soundly debunked as implausible for a jumbo sized airliner with a radar signature some 50 times the size of a jet fighter which could possibly fly as low as 50 to 100m above ground and dodging trees, hills and High Tension lines strung across valleys in familiar terrain!
All theories involving a scenario of a catastrophic failure, fire, bombs, missiles, decompression etc fail on various points: No Black Box signals have been detected, which should automatically be emitted in a crash and emergency; the plane quite evidently was spotted in various locations enacting very deliberate manoeuvres and had clearly someone fully in charge of the aircraft commandeering it either from the cockpit or remotely.
Despite sightings of a burning aircraft in the sky at the last known radar contact, “nothing was found” bar some oil slicks which were dismissed as not from the MH370 Boeing 777.
This last point remains one of the great mysteries as the sighting of a burning aircraft was very credible and corroborated by at least two other witnesses.
Possible scenarios given all these know facts:
• Plane disappears from civil radar but not military. The ATC's passive or primary radar should still detect a signal bouncing off the plane just as military radars rely on the same principle of echo location, but are more powerful. If passive radar can locate flocks of birds, as ATC personnel regularly complain about, it would certainly locate a 777.
• Thai military radar apparently tracked MH370 "intermittently", as one spokesperson commented:
“The unknown aircraft’s signal was sending out intermittently, on and off, and on and off”.
What he meant was that the radar echo location signal was received intermittently. This again points to radar blocking in an attempt to stealthily fly the plane towards a predetermined destination.
• Plane made deliberate manoeuvres like climbing to 45,000 feet, possibly to kill all passengers through asphyxiation, indicating someone was in charge either on board, unlikely, or remotely, much more likely.
It also made several turns following Waypoints in a clear predetermined path.
• Requested communication, by Vietnamese ATC, between MH370 and other aircraft in the vicinity was completely incomprehensible and had a "lot of static", as if under the haze of a electronic blocking fog. This would explain why no distress calls from the pilots, or any emergency communication was received.
• Reports of a burning plane at the location of last radar sighting with corresponding oil slicks.
• Unprecedented number of retractions of statements made, only to be reaffirmed immediately since they were too obvious to deny! (invisible hand guiding the narrative?)
Possible Scenario 1:
MH370 was remotely hijacked by an AWACS plane with radar blocking capability with the intention to fly it to Diego Garcia for its Cargo, the passengers, or both, plus to further use the plane for a False Flag Op.
To cover this hijacking a decoy plane was shot down/exploded at the location of the hijacking to create witnesses and have the case closed as a catastrophic accident in midair.
However the planners forgot about the pings sent to a satellite, the fact that military radar still tracked the plane and various visual sightings, so the decoy ploy had to be abandoned and immediately quashed.
If we take Inmarsat’s calculations of the possible arcs and crash location at face value and as true, then the plane was simply put on autopilot once out of radar range in the open Ocean and sent off into the vastness of he southern Indian Ocean to crash once out of fuel.
Inmarsat has yet to release all the Ping arcs they said they've calculated.
Their story is being portrayed as one of true pioneering and clever application of Maths , the Doppler Effect, and data mining to extract possible arcs of the pings received. It is even claimed to have been peer reviewed, all lending incontrovertible credence to the veracity of their conclusions!
However a Physicist in NZ has attempted to recalculate their findings (highly technical) and has concluded that they are at best incorrect but is frustrated by the lack of the actual Ping Data from Inmarsat, which would allow verification of their findings. Unless they release a full set of data and it has been independently recalculated and verified we'll have to treat it as 'official data'; to be viewed with caution.
Includes all the above, as in Scenario 1, with the plane being flown into the southern Indian Ocean and crashed once out of fuel, but with the twist that the plane should never be found. This would have been the speculation of the plotters and be very probable, were it not for the oversight that the plane kept emitting pings, making it possible to track its flight path.
It would then be claimed, as has been by the Zio Media, hat the plane was abducted by Iran, or some Muslim ‘Terrorists’ , to be used in a terror plot.
The Ping oversight would foil the second part of this scenario.
There apparently is, inexplicably or maybe not, an identical twin plane to the MH370 777 in storage in Tel Aviv, see below, which could then have been used to perpetrate a False Flag Op by the Zionist State to blame Iran and to get their long desired war against their imagined Persian nemesis.
They could have quite credibly then been able to claim that it was the missing MH370 Boeing 777, since they’re identical bar the serial number, and we’ve seen from 9/11, TWA800, etc how easy it is for ‘authorities’ to falsify, lie and deceive.
Malaysia has been very vocal and asserted itself as an independent nation outside of the hegemony of the US.
• Malaysia called for Israeli leaders to be tried for War Crimes
• Former PM Mahathir suggested a Gold Dinar Currency, something Gaddafi did, and we know what happened to him and his country.
• Malaysia hosted a Tribunal which found Bush, Blair and Howard guilty of War Crimes in their criminal wars against Iraq and Afghanistan.
• Mahathir calls for Bush, Blair and Howard to be tried for their war crimes.
Malaysia thus made itself a target for retribution, something leaders like Saddam who had the audacity to sell Oil for Euros, or Gaddafi who suggested a Gold backed Dinar could authoritatively talk about if they were still amongst the living were it not for the Crimes against them and their countries by the global Zio Matrix in power.
Other points to consider:
• Hi Tech personnel on board with an outstanding patent, which has since been granted.
• Executive Personnel on board from China etc.
• Supposed mystery cargo on board
But the most damning fact remains 911.
The Zio Apartheid State has long hankered and lobbied for a war against Iran, and given the unspeakable audacity and callousness of 911, will stop at nothing to get their warped, vile aims fulfilled.
Also see the Israeli connection below
In a separate development, the narrative has, as of now, shifted to vilify the pilot as the culprit; a dejected husband whose wife just moved out of the family home and who was “in no way fit to fly”, as one mystery, anonymous friend supposedly said; anonymous because he doesn’t exist?
We might conclude that the perpetrators of this hijacking misjudged the complexity of the operation, even with experience from 911, and had to ad hoc on the go: deny, suppress, then reaffirm when there were too many witnesses protesting, cover up, now vilify etc.
The abrupt declaration that the plane definitely had crashed in the Indian Ocean after running out of fuel, based on the Inmarsat data, despite no positive wreckage of MH370, is yet another piece of the puzzle which doesn’t fit well with a fact based narrative we would expect from ‘authorities’ in charge of such an investigation, and no it’s not Malaysia who is in charge.
Malaysia has taken a lot of flack for it’s supposed ‘mishandling and incompetence’, however the picture emerging is more one of pressures put on them to fit a certain narrative, which was impossible to maintain with all the oversights and continuously emerging facts.
The story is not finished yet, we still don’t know enough to shape a complete picture of what really happened but a best guess is an AWACS hijacking gone awry, for the purpose of vilifying Malaysia, a false flag op with this plane or the identical one in storage in Tel Aviv, or for the people/cargo on board or any combination of these.
From what is presently known the Israel/Iran scenario looks the most likely contender to be closest to the truth.
The Israeli Connection
According to records on plane registration an identical Malaysian Airlines sister airplane Boeing 777-200 was previously sold to GA Telesis which was re-registered and flown to Tel Aviv on 4 September 2013.
According to Bollyn.com:
Malaysian Air 777 manufacturer serial number 28416 registered as 9M-MRI was sold to GA Telesis on 21 Oct 2013 and now registered as N105GT. So the image below shows this aircraft still registered as 9M-MRI and stored at Tarbes Lourdes Pyrenees on 04 Oct 2013, and then on 04 Sep 2013 it’s re-registered as N105GT and stored at Tel Aviv.
The last time that this Malaysian Boeing 777 had been seen was in November 2013 when it was landing in Tel Aviv. Since then that airplane had never been seen again.
It was stored for dissembling but then was obviously NOT dissembled but it was spotted when flying to Tel Aviv in November 2013.
Since then, the 777 Malaysian Airlines has not been seen.
And this from Yoichi Shimatsu
The Israeli military and intelligence presence on Diego Garcia is so massive that long-distance phone operators offer a special discount card for calls to Israel. The Israeli Navy's nuclear-missile capable Dolphin submarines refuel and are serviced at Diego Garcia, saving the time and expense of going to Elat on the Red Sea.
Israeli media and authorities are rife with speculations that the 777 was hijacked by terrorists, from Iran of course, to be used against Israel or the US!
The remote Hijacking of an airliner is not phantasy but present day reality. Boeing fits now all their aircraft with Uninterruptible Autopilots which can be remotely activated and commandeered and which can't be overridden from onboard, neither by pilot nor any Hijacker.
According to 21stCenturyWire:
Perhaps the most unsettling information in regards to the missing Boeing 777 comes from retired 35 year Delta pilot, Field McConnell, who states that since 1995, Boeing Uninterruptible Auto Pilots have been equipped in Boeing planes. This information was apparently not released until March of 2007, following a subsequent lawsuit by McConnell. The modification was reported to the FAA, NTSB and ALPA ( airline pilots association). According to McConnell’s documents, Boeing is said to have stated that by end of 2009 all Boeing planes would be fitted with the BUAP - making them impossible to manually hijack within the plane but susceptible to remote control by the military, according the flight veteran.
26 March 2014
If it is positively confirmed that wreckage from the MH370 Boeing 777 has been found in the southern Indian Ocean it would most likely confirm that the plot to hijack the plane to Diego Garcia was abandoned due to the fact that the Pings would have incontrovertibly exposed the plot.
Or the Inmarsat data is completely fraudulent and the plane did land in Diego Garcia and was later flown remotely to this location to crash while running out of fuel, still a very plausible hypothesis.
Beijing 26 March 2014
Malaysian officials told Chinese relatives in Beijing that there is “sealed evidence” which can’t be released.
The sealed evidence included air traffic control radio transcript, radar data and airport security recordings.
An incredible admission to grieving relatives which all ads to the mystery and the antagonism towards Malaysia by the Chinese! Perhaps all by design?
What evidence is so secret that it can’t be revealed and why even tout that there is ‘evidence’ Malaysia is not allowed to release?
Perhaps Malaysia is sending signals to say that there are higher powers who are controlling the news flow/narrative.
28 March 2014
After re-examining radar data authorities investigating the disappearance of MH370 concluded that it was flying faster and lower than previously thought and thus would have run out of fuel faster, prompting them to shift the search area 1,100km northeast from the present area, closer to its starting point.
The derived plight path from the pings, according to the image on the right, should have Indonesian radar detecting the plane flying south across and past its territory.
We are constantly bombarded with Satellite images showing ‘credible leads of debris’ in various locations roughly in line with the Inmarsat Ping arcs, yet suddenly the ‘area of interest’ shifts by a whopping 1,100km based on radar data, which could only come from the Malaysian and Thai radar, tracking MH370 heading west into the Andaman Sea.
It leads to speculation that the plane might never be found and that some invisible hand is directing the chaotic procedures to fit their narrative/plot.
Or the plane will be found in a location where probable plotters have dumped/crashed MH370.
There is only one nation powerful enough to coerce a nation, any nation, to comply with its directives and make a fool of itself in doing so! Malaysia is garnering a lot of flack and ire from the Chinese and is vilified by Western Media for its ‘incompetence’, however it is apparent that they are as much in the dark as anyone else bar the perpetrators of this crime.
28 March 2014
Maldives residents who spotted a low flying plane with matching livery to the Malaysian Airlines 777 expressed outrage that their sighting was completely dismissed out of hand.
Authorities were quick to dismiss their reports as false.
29 March 2014
The FBI cleared the Pilot after examining the Flight Simulator saying they found nothing suspicious.
This is very significant since the FBI could very well be construed to be just a cog in the power structure which might be involved in the disappearance of MH370.
30 March 2014
It has been disclosed that MI6, CIA and Chinese Intelligence Agencies are involved investigating the disappearance of MH370, fueling speculation that terrorism is high on the list of possible causes for the mysterious vanishing of the Boeing 777.
This from "Jihad Watch"
A fortnight ago the Sunday Telegraph disclosed that an al-Qaeda supergrass had previously warned secret services that four to five Malaysian men had been planning to take control of a plane, using a bomb hidden in a shoe to blow open the cockpit door.
The terror plot was hatched, said the supergrass, in an Afghan terror training camp by the mastermind behind the 9/11 attack on America.
Giving evidence earlier this month at the trial in New York of Sulaiman Abu Ghaith, Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law, Badat said: “I gave one of my shoes to the Malaysians. I think it was to access the cockpit.”
Badat told the court that he believed the Malaysians, including the pilot, were “ready to perform an act.”
Badat, who spoke via video link and is in hiding in the UK, said the Malaysian plot was masterminded by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the principal architect of 9/11.
Mastermind of 9/11? Well that explains it all then!
An explosion powerful enough to blow open the cockpit door would also blow the plane to shreds at high altitude, where the external pressure is a fraction of the inside pressure; an implausible supposition, obviously designed to push the Muslim terrorist narrative.
31 March 2014
The "Daily Mail / Mail Online" appears very much in the forefront of pushing the 'official' line and seems to be a covert outlet for planting the narrative of TPTB in an attempt to vilify the pilot.
Earlier it reported that in an interview with police the daughter of the pilot had disclosed how much 'distressed and remote' her father was in the weeks prior to the disappearance of flight MH370, and how he didn't talk to any family members while living in the same house, spending most of his time with his Flight Simulator.
However Malaysian police angrily rebuked media for reporting such stories as unsubstantiated, irresponsible and from unreliable sources.
The daughter now too has slammed the tabloid for 'making up" the story out of thin air.
Adding, in her Facebook posting: “May God have mercy on your souls. You can bet your ass I will not forgive you”
The missing passengers which did not fly
Originally on the 10 of March the head of Malaysia's Department of Civil Aviation, Azharuddin Abdul Rahman, confirmed reports that five passengers who had purchased tickets and checked baggage did not board the flight.
He said Malaysia Airlines had removed those passengers' baggage once it learned they did not board the plane, in accordance with standard procedure.
However on the 11 of March Malaysian Airlines in their 12th Media Statement announced that four passengers with valid tickets did not check in and hence there was no need for offloading any baggage.
On the 12 of March MAS Group CEO Ahmad Jauhari Yahya said that the four seats were taken by standby passengers, this despite there being 55 empty seats.
He also said that only one women, who phoned in to cancel her flight did not check in and board.
Employing Occam's Razor, it is usually safe to assume the initial statement as the one closest to the truth, the one without the time to contemplate, scheme and forge to fit a certain narrative!
Search area as of 1 April 2014
A rather 'inconvenient' location to crash a plane, on top of a very deep trench. It makes the narrative emerging now that the plane 'may never be found" very plausible.
We're sure this is purely coincidental and does not involve a sinister plot, like the idea that the plane should never be found since it just landed in that deep trench.
2nd April 2014
Secret Text Message sent?
In an intriguing twist, one passenger on the flight has supposedly managed to get a text message out, posted to a message board, with an accompanying picture attached.
The message reads:
"I have been held hostage by unknown military personal after my flight was hijacked (blindfolded). I work for IBM and I have managed to hide my cellphone in my ass during the hijack. I have been separated from the rest of the passengers and I am in a cell. My name is Philip Wood. I think I have been drugged as well and cannot think clearly."
The most interesting part is the EXIF data embedded in the picture, which includes the Camera, Exposure, Aperture, Focal Length, Date, but most importantly with the iphone 5, the coordinates of the location of where the photo was taken.
These coordinates correspond to a location on Diego Garcia.
The investigative journalist Jim Stone who broke this story now says that within hours of the story being posted on his website, this photo was hacked along with his site.
If this should prove to be a genuine text and photo from the passenger Philip Wood, this could be the smoking gun and a very hot potato, and unsurprisingly someone would want to destroy this evidence.
We’ll have to see how this pans out, but it is a very interesting piece to the mystery of MH370 and the journalist Jim Stone has some interesting stories in his body of work.
But then again false plants are part of plots to discredit, ridicule and mislead; we shall reserve our judgment.
Update on this story is hat some now claim that Philip Wood and his supposed girlfriend are in fact CIA/FBI assets and have taken part on 'role play', read faking scenes such as the Boston bombings. Either that is shilling to smother and discredit the story or it has merit.
Fly by Wire
In a another twist of intrigue, the technology pertaining to the Fly by Wire which Boeing employs in their aircrafts, including the missing 777, is patented and the USG immediately enforced the ‘Invention Secrecy Act’, and the details of this patent have been under lock and key ever since.
It pertains to the safety of their FBW technology, the prevention of hacking and remote hijacking.
The patent is called “Probabilistic mitigation of control channel jamming via random key distribution in wireless communications networks”.
It is dated 5 March 2013, suggesting that this technology has not been deployed on this aircraft, making it very vulnerable to hacking and remote hijacking.
3 April 2014
In an analysis of the Inmarsat ping arcs Conor Myhrvold concludes that the plane could not have flown to the derived location by means of autopilot alone. He writes:
“What does this all mean? Autopilot is out of options. You see, here is the simple problem--none of the possible paths can be reconciled with a geodesic (Great Circle) which means that the plane turned at multiple points. How could it turn? Well, the plane was “flown” to its final location--either manually by a human, or by a program entered into the flight management system. These results strongly suggest that wherever MH370 is, the odds are that someone wanted it there.”
This conclusion is lending further credence to the theory that the plane was deliberately flown to a destination where it will never be found so that the identical plane in storage in Tel Aviv can be used for a false flag terror op, blaming Iran for it in an attempt by the Zio Warmonger State to get its long desired war with their perceived nemesis, peaceful Iran.
Inmarsat refuses to release raw Ping data
Scientists attempting to recalculate and verify the Inmarsat conclusion for the arcs according to the last known ping are frustrated by the refusal of the company to release their raw data, providing only their graphs they claim to have been calculated from the data.
Why the secrecy, why the refusal to release innocent data which could possibly not reveal any secrets? This lends to speculating and questioning whether there even is such data.
In a further twist to this saga scientist Duncan Steel concludes that he can’t exclude the northern route for MH370 based on the information at hand. This casts more doubt on the Inmarsat assertion that they conclusively arrived at the southern route based on their data, which they refuse to release.
It questions the whole ping data scenario which remains shrouded in secrecy.
4 April 2014
In a stunning revelation, Malaysian opposition leader Mr Anwar Ibrahim expressed bewilderment as to why the sophisticated Marconi radar system which he authorised as finance minister in 1994 had failed to immediately detect the plane’s deviation.
He said it was “not only unacceptable but not possible, not feasible’’ that it could travel across “at least four’’ Malaysian provinces undetected, adding: “I believe the government knows more than us’’.
“We don’t have the sophistication of the United States or Britain but still we have the capacity to protect our borders,’’ he stressed.
This remarkable revelation all adds credence to the picture that the plane was hijacked under the cloak of Radar Blocking and flown remotely to a destination we have yet to determine.
What Mr Anwar is not aware of is that of course the Malaysian Government is not part of a plot, does not hide any information, and could in fact not track the plane as it was, most likely, under radar blocking by a foreign power with AWACS planes capable of such a plot.
But if it transpires that there is information the Malaysian Government is sitting on it is most likely under instructions to do so by the only one nation capable of exerting such onerous pressure.
Shades of 911.
Op Edge on RT
In a powerful Op Edge journalist Tony Gosling argues for the very hypothesis explored here, that MH370 was hijacked by the US military and flown to a destination suiting their plot.
He links the 777 disappearance to 911, and expounds other aspects of sinister plots by the USG, like assassinations.
5 April 2014
The Chinese ship Haixun 01 reportedly picked up a signal at 37.5 kHz with its ‘Black Box Locator’ at 25 degrees south latitude and 101 degrees east longitude.
The identity of the source has yet to be verified.
6 April 2014
Malaysian official said that from radar and ping data it appears abundantly clear that the plane took a deliberate course to avoid radar detection; the location of crossing Malaysia and then skirting deliberately around Indonesia before heading south.
This again lends credence to the hypothesis that the entire operational gist of this hijacking was to remain undetected, either to fly the plane to a destination, such as Diego Garcia, or to dump the plane in the southern Indian Ocean with the assumption that it will never be found since its official flight path was heading in the exact opposite direction, north into the South China Sea.
The believed plotters would have assumed that that’s where the search would be conducted, were it not for all the failings of this apparent plot: the radar sightings, the pings, the visual sightings, and just plain common sense to realize that a jumbo jet sized modern day plane equipped with triple redundant electronics and Flight Management Systems just can’t disappear without a trace, without it being carefully planned and plotted to do so.
The pilot is not a candidate for such an operation, not with radar blocking seemingly an obvious part of the plot.
Are the confusing and haphazard detection of acoustic and electronic signals a deliberate plot to confuse and mislead the searchers by planting emitters of such signals at the bottom of the ocean?
One might be forgiven to think so after this contracted and incredibly chaotic, contradictory and haphazard search, starting from day one.
Who is this person really
This lady is seen on many networks opining that her supposed boyfriend Philip Wood is still alive and is being held hostage somewhere.
There has been a lot of speculation that this person, and Philip Wood are in fact'crisis actors', or better described as CIA/FBI assets employed to fake scenes, such as in the Boston Bombing or at Sandy Hook. This could be shilling or real, but not that material to the overall plot.
Yet more intrigue and mystery.
Revisiting the mystery of the connecting phones
It appears the authorities investigating the MH370 crash have not seriously investigated the fact that passengers’ mobile phones connected and clearly rang several times but obviously weren’t answered. Some relatives say that the calls were ‘hung up’ on them while ringing.
On the 9th March China.Org.cn reported the following:
When asked about why the phone of a passenger on board was reachable but then hung up, Ong Ming Choy, representative of Malaysia Airlines, replied that he dialed that number several times but no one answered. Relevant departments have been informed of the matter and an investigation is under way.
Nothing more has been forthcoming on this vital piece of evidence easily traceable and verifiable.
The first point is a ruse, since at that time the plane would have been long out of fuel and wouldn’t be flying, unless refuelled. Yes, at 35,000 feet it is unlikely to make a lasting connection to a cell tower, but there is still a slim chance to get at least a very fleeting connection from a phone which has not been switched off or even if it is in flight mode.
The second point could be due to the fact that the phones by that time ran out of battery, or more sinisterly, were destroyed by someone.
It is also claimed that hearing a ringing tone could be due to the network returning a ringing signal while roaming and trying to connect. This does not stand up to scrutiny; the ringing tone indicates connection has been established to the dialled number.
There was live footage shown on Beijing TV showing a family member calling a passenger’s number and the call connecting and ringing.
If we take the relatives at their word, and there are many of them who are adamant they heard ringing tones and in fact 19 of them singed a petition to investigate the mobile phone angle, then this suppression, media disinformation blitz and refusal to investigate this angle adds yet more mystery and intrigue, and also credence to speculations there is a grand cover up of a sinister plot.
It would be a very simple matter of following the trail of the network connections made when the phones connected and rang, NSA surely knows everything that goes on electronically on this planet and stores all information, and so does every network.
But if the calls terminated in, say Diego Garcia, then there sadly wouldn’t be any cooperation forthcoming from our investigating authorities.
In a stunning interview the former high level advisor to former Malaysian Prime Minister Mohammed Mahatir, Matthias Chang, revealed that the US and Thai military were holding exercises, codenamed Cobra Gold and Cope Tiger, at the exact time when MH370 was hijacked.
He reflects on the fact that the very same tactics were employed by the plotters of 911 and the London bombings, where simultaneous exercises were held as cover for their False Flag Terror attacks against their own people.
He also states that the plane must have been hijacked remotely by a nation with the capability, such as AWACS planes, to carry out such an operation!
He further states that the search looks like a deliberate Wild Goose Chase, led by “Western Nations” to mislead the public.
Of Rolls Royce he says:
"So for six hours or more, Rolls-Royce would have kept track of the pings. Rolls-Royce would know where the plane's going. Now I'm told, rightly or wrongly, that in the protocol, Rolls-Royce may be prohibited from disclosing this information."
Chang also notes that the US with its supreme satellite technology and capabilities is conspicuously silent and absent from providing meaningful information to the possible whereabouts of flight MH370.
"Under the cover of the military exercises, something diabolical, something catastrophic, has happened."
We can only concur, and the mountain of evidence gives ample credence to such a supposition.
In another twist, satellite imagery showed a massive smoke plume emerging above the clouds on the 8th of March in the mountains of Kyrgyzstan, at about the time flight NH370 would have reach that point. The location corresponds with the Inmarsat 08:11 ping arc and the range according to fuel. Chinese scientist Kuang Yao speculates it could be the missing MH370 crash site.
We certainly would prefer to conclude that this mysterious disappearance is all just an innocent tragedy, a technical malfunction, a fire perhaps or metal fatigue, this would satisfy and be acceptable to everyone.
But we’ve learnt from 911 and other ‘terrorists’ incidents that rogue states are not beyond the most heinous atrocities against their own people and those of their closest ‘friends’. In the case of USS Liberty, a very well documented, and proven beyond any doubt act of state sponsored terrorism, the Israelis attacked the ship and particularly aimed at the lifeboats to destroy them, even shooting at the lifeboats in the water, full of sailors, all to cause maximum casualties. President Johnson himself uttered the unimaginably treasonous words: “I want that god damn ship at the bottom of the ocean”.
The twin towers were primed with explosives to take them down in a ‘controlled demolition’. But what’s most galling and telling is that the perpetrators from the rogue states, US/Israel, right after the planes’ impacts, set off explosives to destroy the stairs in order to prevent anyone escaping in an attempt to save their lives, all in order again to cause maximum casualties.
Had they fully succeeded with this diabolical plot they might have massacred upwards of 50,000 innocent people.
False Flag Ops such as these are a dime a dozen throughout history, from Nero’s burning of Rome to Hitler’s Reichstag Fire and the dressing up of a few victims in polish uniforms then shooting them to declare they’ve attacked Germany and in announcing the start of WWII uttered the infamous lie: “Since 5:45 we are returning fire, from now on bomb will be answered with bomb”
If we take Hitler as the yardstick of all evil, as is so fondly and fervently practiced in an attempt to project and deflect all present day evil to one single focal point, then our present day leaders, and those in our very recent history, are every bit as wicked and depraved as the bogeyman of all time; all documented beyond any shade of a doubt.
Then there were: USS Maine, Lusitania, Operation Gladio, Gulf of Tonkin incident, Cubana Flight 455, Operation Northwoods planned but canned by Kennedy, Pearl Harbour the invited ‘surprise attack’, the Israeli Lavon affair, Iran Iraq ware engineered by the US by arming Saddam with ‘WMD’ and encouraging him, Grenada invasion justified by the ruse that US students were in danger, the WMD lie to start a war with Iraq, undercover ops of every description and on and on.
False Flat Ops by our governments are commonplace and the utter barbarity and callousness with which these are carried out proves beyond any doubt that they stop at nothing to start a war, wars to profiteer: Banksters Wars.
As was the case to start wars with Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Syria and dozens more, they’re now baying for a war with Iran, perhaps insanely even Russia given all the pathetic vilification and the encirclement of Russia with military and missile bases, this despite all previous promises and undertakings, a false flag op will have to be employed to get the public ‘onside’ for yet another criminal war of aggression and to profiteer by the few, over the corpses of millions, misery and destruction.
A Brlliant Summation
One driver, who found such a bomb planted on his pickup and survived, was told to immediately go to the central police station to report there.
Another was headed for the market.
“The USG is a wholly lawless entity: US is now a Tyranny!”These atrocities are then blamed on ‘Sectarian Violence’!
From Cairo to Baghdad, from Tripoli to Damascus, from Kiev to Bangkok and Caracas, the US has snipers stationed at protests to randomly kill people so as to blame the incumbent Government for the killings and foment unrest, regime change, civil war, mayhem, chaos, and whatever deranged, vile plans they want to visit upon an innocent nation.
Add to this the extrajudicial murder of innocents, by the thousands, of foreign and US nationals by Obama with his illegal Drone program, the suspension of Habeas Corpus, the torture and illegal and unconstitutional incarceration of innocents in Gitmo, captured for bounties, and the wholesale riding roughshod over all constitutional, US and international laws by both, the US and Israel and you’ve got lawless rogue states perpetrating terrorism and crimes against humanity on a unprecedented scale.
It all paints a gruesome picture of barbaric, debauched people in power who’ll stop at nothing to get their aim.
In this light the disappearance of MH370 takes on sinister undertones given all the emerging facts, inconsistencies, denials, back-pedalling and cover ups.
But as MSM ‘debunkers’ and shills condescendingly would sneer in reference to ‘conspiracy theories’, analysing all these events and uncovering the threads of the plots is just an attempt to “make order out of chaos and be comforting to those who adhere to these ‘conspiracy theories”.
Yes indeed, it must be comforting to believe that our governments are all benign ‘do gooders’ and never would dream of harming their own people, and all the documented, witnessed and admitted history of heinous atrocities and false flag terrorism by governments are just figments of vivid imaginations by crazed conspiracy nutters.

For a lighthearted look at what's going on behind the scenes click here.
Gold represents the underlying value in a currency such as the Gold Standard of old, or any form where Currency is directly redeemable for Gold, and where Gold, or Silver, is the actual Money, the entire WS Banking system could not exist, a system invariably described as parasitic, superfluous and destructive.
The present, privately owned Fiat Fractional Reserve Lending, FRL, system allows Banksters to print currency out of thin air and charge interest on it, it allows them to leaver up on depositors’ assets and speculate, gamble and rort the system for their own books with OPM, Other Peoples’ Money, and construct a gigantic casino with derivatives, CDS, CDO, IRS etc, amounting to Quadrillions, all of which serve no purpose other than to defraud the productive citizens and profiteer from OPM.
And therein lays the crux and the banksters’ hatred for Gold and Silver, and also all the structural problems besetting the economy and financial system.
For Politicos it would prevent deficit spending, printing/borrowing currency to fund gigantic war machines and wage criminal wars, funding election promises to buy themselves into office with OPM, and repay banksters with deficit spending, indebting the nation to the banksters for bankrolling their election.
Of course scant regard is given to the trillions invested in the Precious Metals industry by the productive sector and investors; in fact parasitic banksters’ aim is to destroy the entire Precious Metals industry and all the trillions of hard working citizens’ wealth with it.
The vital miscalculation of TPTB in their blind hatred for Gold and Silver, and their Machiavellian destruction crime thereof, is that the BRIICS countries are rapidly re-monetizing Gold now, and have bought virtually all the US’ and West’s Gold; they recognize, as do billions of people around the globe, that Gold is Money and Power!
In order to suppress prices of Gold and Silver the riggers ended up underhandedly leasing, rehypothecating and hocking off the people’s Gold, right into the hands of their arch rival, China, at hugely discounted prices.
The interested parties in the demise of Gold and Silver as Money makes the list of perpetrators a varied and long one:
• The USG is determined to defend the Dollar as the World Reserve Currency, since this allows them to print and buy real goods from around the globe. Print and maintain a war machine and global empire. Print and wage wars and all manners of covert operations to perpetuate their hegemony. Print and make spending promises to get re-elected. Print and subdue a restless populace which has been rendered into virtual submission and economic privation through the very act of all these Fiat FRL enabled shenanigans and Fraud.
All this is of course a circuitous death spiral into the economic and financial abyss.
• The Fed needs to preserve this status quo for the Dollar or the Fed would become meaningless.
• The WS Banksters' entire raison d'être is at stake. See Footnote a
• The BIS is a puppet arm of the USG and Fed and acts on their instructions. The SDRs issued by the BIS is a covert means to ‘demonetize’ Gold, at the behest of the USG.
Secret memos and documents unearthed and published by GATA and other researchers reveals a picture of systematic vilification, marginalisation and the avowed destruction of Gold and Silver as Monetary Metals, euphemistically called, ‘Demonetization’, by TPTB, i.e. CB, WS Banksters, BIS and the USG and its secretive crime unit, the completely unaccountable, top secret ESF!

Flow Chart of the Gold Market and price rigging
Click to enlarge
The idea that a rising Gold price is somehow linked to interest rates, and hence the fate of the Dollar, stems from a paper, Gibson’s Paradox, written by one of WS’ most ardent hacks and onetime Secretary of the Treasury, Larry Summers.
(Summers and Rubin were the architects of the complete deregulation, repeal of Glass Steagall, and ‘de-oversighting’ of the financial markets; a sleight of conniving with WS, which brought about the present intractable financial malaise, but brought unimaginable riches to the few WS Executives he was working for while in the employ and pay of the Taxpayers)
This paper was solely a justification for the very lucrative racket of rigging the Gold and Silver markets, where the riggers are invariably the winners and everyone else the losers.
JPM regularly reports ‘perfect quarters’ where they ‘earn’ in excess of $100m every single day form their ‘trading desk’; read ‘rigged Market Ops’.
Of course this is only possible in completely rigged markets where the mega Banksters collude in rigging markets and loot the other hapless participants of their investments, time and again.
This also explains the complete complicity of the ‘regulators’, the CFTC, in allowing this criminal racket to continue in full view of everyone, and closing both eyes, when everyone is screaming foul and corruption!
The ESF was set up under the 1934 Gold Reserve Act to carry out covert market operations in Forex, Gold, Silver and just about every other market.
Of course there can be no legitimacy in the unilateral suppression and rigging of prices by the US of globally traded markets affecting billions of people around the planet.
The USG is fond of quickly labelling anyone a ‘Currency Rigger’ or the like, if they suspect market operations by a country affects their ability to rig that market with their own secret and illegitimate interventions.
The ESF is reportedly also involved in far more than just these illicit market ops, the range of activities attributed to this ultra secret unit range from Money Laundering to the financing of the CIA’s endless list of Black Ops, Drug running, Covert Wars and every kind of criminal activity carried out without supervision and accountability.
In a truly bizarre twist of conniving, 15 of WS’ top Banksters met in early April 2013 at the WH just hours before the most concerted and vociferous attack on Gold and Silver, revealing complicity and collusion at the highest level in this suppression crime.
Banksters got themselves into a very tight spot and were just hours away from defaulting in their Fractional Gold Market racket, where every single ounce has at least one hundred claims to it.
Their crime of reselling the same asset hundreds to times over, the looting and stealing of Customers’ allocated/unallocated Gold accounts, the re-re-rehypothecation of leased Gold and the gigantic naked short positions which they were called upon to deliver had them resort to ever more aggressive suppression and price destruction, seeking the redoubled assistance of the USG/ESF in this crime.
Not surprising the CFTC declared that there is ‘No Crime’ committed in the Silver market, and by extension in the Gold market, despite a five year investigation and first hand Whistleblower testimony, and the entire planet being able to discern normal trading where sellers maximize their proceeds, and the deliberate dumping of gigantic Naked Short Contracts, intentionally crashing the entire Bid Stack during the quietest trading time of the day!
A medical study in Fallujah found the incidence of
• Childhood Leukemia to be elevate to 38 times to what would be the expected rate.
• Child Cancer rate 12 times
• Breast Cancer 10 times
• Infant Mortality 15 times
• Congenital Birth Defects were deemed scientifically unquantifiable since many mothers give birth at home and often the baby dies at birth and the incidence goes unreported, but it is hugely elevated.
There is also an incontrovertible radiation signature of Enriched Uranium, clearly attesting to some type of new Tactical Nuke which the US is using against civilians, causing widespread radiation sickness and adding to the statistics of all the horrendous radiation induced mutations, cancers and sicknesses cited above.
This same type of new Tactical Nuke appears to have been used in Gaza by Israel, the US’ partner in the Middle East and recipient of Nuke Bunker Busters which they used against Syria, with impunity! This is shown by the radiation signature found in Gaza.
The most horrendous aspect of this radiation pollution is its insidious and enduring maiming and killing, for all intents and purposes to eternity, making vast tracts of land uninhabitable and posing an enormous health hazard for Iraq and the entire planet.
Below are some of the Horrendous Birth Defects caused by the USG use of Nukes in Iraq, and elsewhere!
To perpetrate a spree of massive killing
Obama though’s a shunned old loner
He is the undisputed slyball droner
And always someone else’s blood is spilling
Some thought he was little slimy
Lost six billions with his gambles
His company now’s in shambles
Yet all he said’s “Don’t blame me”
Was charged to oversee the Mart
Had lots of proof of market rigging
But five years later did a little jigging
Turns out he’s just another WS Tart
Yet it’s the absolute and abject lows
A horrendous One-State spree of crime
The worst and utter human slime
But soon one day, it'll reap of what it sows
Money is the colour of honey
Fiat’s like confetti
Invented by a Yeti
With Gold it’s always sunny
Has it all been slyly leased and sold?
“It’s to support my Fiat Dollar”
We hear Shalom Bernanke holler
A traitor in the worst ol’ Bankster’s mould
Now’s mankind really sound and safe?
Forged and printed by the trillions
To raze and slaughter women kids civilians
Satan’s tool to plunder rape enslave
They fight and kill to keep this pot of honey
They print and forge it by the Trillions
Charge even interest to us foolish minions
This fiat fraud’s now headed for the ‘dunny’
Where real Gold is leveraged to be awed
It’s more than just a hundred times to one
This Crimex system everyone should shun
Thoughts of getting real Gold are truly flawed
Defying any logic or sound reason
Our Gold, that’s save we’re falsely told
Has all been leased and slyly sold
Fort Knox’s been void for many a season
He wants the world to Zio-rearrange
He set his sights on Iran/Syria
Already razed Gaddafi’s Libya
It’s all for Zio shekels in exchange
It’s got that glow and hue of Honey
It is the banksters’ sworn old foe
Never liked that shiny honest glow
With Gold as dough they just can’t racketeer
Loot and pilfer, steal or profiteer
But Fiat is the definite parasitic racket
Where people’s wealth ends up in Banksters’ pocket
A tale of two kingdoms; Aurelium and Fiatistan.
Any similarity with living individuals and existing kingdoms is entirely unintended and coincidental!
In the kingdom of Aurelium the people were busy and working hard to extract a beautiful yellow metal, which they liked very much and treasured above all else since they could shape into jewellery, many ornaments and also exchange it for goods and services amongst the population of the kingdom. Soon the king decided to standardize the trading of this yellow metal and started to mint coins of defined weights and denominations. Thus Money was born and commerce really started to flourish and grew at a steady pace equivalent to the amount of the yellow metal people were able to extract.
Since the people who extracted the yellow metal paid a royalty to the king for the privilege of being granted a mining licence, and the fact that they took their yellow metal to the royal mint to have it minted into coins and then spent that money into the economy in wages, supplies and many other costs, all the money in circulation was debt free, everyone earned it through their hard labour and no one had to borrow any money ‘into existence’.
It was a fair, peace loving and just society built on ‘Reward for Effort’ and this ensured an orderly and gentle society, where everyone respected the rule of law and knew and appreciated the value of effort and labour.
In kingdom Fiatistan a group of hardnosed gangsters who were very shy of work and which had a parasitic bent went to the king and smooth talked him into granting them the sole right to issue currency, solely printed on paper, which everyone in the kingdom was forced to use, since it was decreed at the same time that any other form of currency was illegal and citizens had to pay their taxes with this paper currency. They called their currency the Dullard.
Having obtained the sole right to print currency meant that every single unit of currency in circulation was a Debt by some citizen owed to these gangsters, now called Banksters, who had to borrow it into existence through loans or credit card purchases.
It was an onerous system where this group of Banksters had the right to print money out of thin air, something everyone else was severely punished for, as it was called counterfeit if done by ordinary people!
Through this incredible, some citizens of Fiatino called it a crazy, outlandish, unnatural and iniquitous system, these Bankster soon accumulated immense wealth, since every currency unit in circulation carried interest payable to them. And the currency to pay that interest also had to be borrowed into existence, so the currency supply had to permanently increase at an every increasing clip, till one day it would go hyperbolic.
With the accumulation of wealth inevitably came immense power over the king, his ministers, the economy and everyone in the kingdom.
First US Fiat Paper Currency, the ‘Continental’ of 1775, backed by nothing than promised tax revenue! It soon suffered the fate of all Fiat Currencies and became the epitome of worthlessness in "Not worth a Contintenal"
The Banksters would in fact run the kingdom as they pleased, and to the sole benefit and advantage to themselves.
With all that wealth they bought all the media in the kingdom to control the entire news flow and minds of its citizens, they bought large swathes of the economy and had their representatives on every board, in every council and they also literally appointed all their own ministers to the king’s cabinet.
These Banksters in fact were the state within the kingdom, and the king was a very unhappy man for having granted them this right to print currency.
Needless to say that the citizens in the kingdom of Fiatistan became more and more unhappy, unhealthy and grew ever more alienated from the natural flow of life, nature and family.
Fiatistan was also constantly at war with every other kingdom since the Banksters simply could print more of their confetti currency to finance these wars. But the wars in themselves were a scheme by the Banksters to enrich themselves; by creating more interest bearing debt for the kingdom and financing the war industry which they all owned.
Other kingdoms which didn’t have the same Fiat Currency system and refused to use Fiatistan’s Dullard currency were first vilified with lies, then blamed for false flag terrorism and then attacked, destroyed and occupied.
The Banksters schemed all along that they had the power to indebt the kingdom, and every citizen, to them by printing excess currency so that people would borrow more and more and buy assets which inflated in price until it became apparent that the price was unsustainable and the asset bubble would burst.
This accorded the Banksters the means to scoop up assets at hugely discounted prices from distressed borrowers. And so the Banksters, under its leaders Al Greenbridge and later on Hi Barnacle, created boom and bust cycles with ever increasing frequency by excessively loosening and then tightening the currency supply, which made the Banksters very, very rich and the citizens very poor.
This worked for a very long time, far too long it seemed to all the poor suffering citizens of Fiatistan, until one day the debt of the kingdom, combined with the collective debt of the citizens, was just too great to be sustained any longer and the whole Fiat Currency system …………
Stand by for the continuation of this tale of two unequal kingdoms!
In Aurelium the Monetary System grew out of a natural progression, and everyone accepted this Money since they knew it was valuable and difficult to get; only through hard work and effort. So their system lasted to this day and there is no sign that it could ever collapse, change, or be rejected by the citizens of Aurelium. It is a natural emanation of the free market, and a just, fair and equitable system, and these are the essential qualities to its infallibility and enduring nature.
Now with internet banking the king instituted an electronic payment system where the gold can be deposited in secure, audited vaults and payments can be made in units down to nano grams of gold. Thus it is as convenient as any modern funds transfer system, except this is an Honest Money System, which can’t be printed out of thin air and has no counterparty risk; the gold IS the Money, and ownership always is vested with the Citizens, the actual owner, not any Bankster!
In Fiatistan the currency system was a parasitic, artificial construct, and moreover implemented by devious machinations by a clique of gangsters who had their game plan all set out in advance.
As one of their ancestors, Crimsonplaque, sinisterly quipped: “Let me issue a country’s currency and I care not who makes the laws”!
These gangsters understood all along that only money is real power and with that power one can control everything and seize ever more wealth from productive citizens. The citizens didn’t wake up to that fact until it was far too late and their kingdom was in such a parlous state of decline and their freedoms had been all but obliterated.
They looked with heavy hearts and more than a touch of envy across the border to Aurelium and sworn to themselves that for the next monetary system they will copy their natural system and never again let any parasitic gangsters take total control over their monetary system, lives and the entire kingdom!

A closer examination of the impact Tibetans experienced due to their encounter with the Han Chinese.
The Chinese government declared the 28th of March ‘Tibetan Serfs Emancipation Day’, an annual holiday when the Tibetans are to celebrate their ‘liberation from serfdom’ by the Han Chinese.
When in 1950 the Chinese PLA invaded Tibet, they repeatedly told the Tibetans that the 'Han People’ had come to liberate and assist them. See Footnotes: i
This begs a closer examination of the encounters and experiences by the Tibetans with these ‘Han People’, and what cause for celebration they might have on this day.
Ever since ancient times the Han people would view ‘border people’, and in fact all other races, as barbarians and see them as beasts beneath the noble, superior Han race.
These ‘border people’ were referred to with the added characters of dog for the people of the north, a reptile for the Min and Man people and a sheep for the Qiang, etc.
The Tibetans were referred to in various terms, including ‘fan’ or ‘barbarians’; ‘t’u-fan’ or ‘agricultural barbarians’, and ‘hsi-fan’ or ‘western barbarians’; an attitude which primarily shaped their conduct and interactions with these other races.
These racist attitudes harboured by the Han people is best expressed by Wang Fuzhi, a contemporary of the late Ming and early Qing dynasty, in the following missive:
“And the Barbarians you may exterminate them and it will not be cruel, you may loot and plunder their lands and it won’t be unfair and unjust, you may deceive them and defraud them and it won’t be unrighteous; because all these notions only apply to man of verbal intercourse, and do not apply to different species.”
 Propaganda and Reality
Exhibitions assembled by the CCP to commemorate the ‘Tibetan Serfs Emancipation Day’ depict all manner of torture instrument, photographs, documents, relics of bones and skulls, etc. to ‘prove the barbarity’ of the old Tibet.
The CCP has made this part of a diplomatic offensive designed to quash any questioning of the legitimacy of the Han nation ‘owning’ Tibet.
The Chinese, in newly found confidence over their economic success, are displaying supreme self assurance, and their bullying and cowering into compliance with their view of the world is taking on an ever more sinister and menacing degree, meted out to nations large and small.
CCP propaganda paints a picture of a downtrodden Serfdom and an exploitative and cruel Aristocracy, who ruled over the ‘Serfs’ as a class of slaves in brutal oppression.
In order to justify the ‘liberation’ of Tibet, the Chinese need to portray Tibetan society as “Hell on Earth” and turn it into a “Class Struggle”, which clearly is not borne out by historical facts, but is essential in the Marxist/Communist/CCP doctrine, where class is the nemesis of the egalitarian society and takes precedence over national identity.
We shall revisit “Hell on Earth” again later.
See Footnotes: ii
The type of social strata practised in Tibet in fact was a benign form of peasant / landowner relationship, with the landowners most often not much better off than the labourers themselves.
Indeed, there was a kinship amongst all of the population which was unique to Tibet, and bonded landlord and peasant in a much deeper sense than just their common economic fate. Peasants often had their own plot of land they could cultivate, and paid the landowner in service of labour or produce as their circumstances afforded them.
Tibet as a country was very poor but content, with very little difference between rich and poor.
The workers were not bonded to the aristocrats and could move on to work for other landowners if they felt they could improve their lives by doing so.
In “Tibet through dissident Chinese eyes”, Yiu Yung-chin and others express the sentiment that by contrast, China was a much more iniquitous society, where there were huge disparities of wealth, and widespread cruelty between the landowners and the peasants, with torture, beatings to death and rape of peasant tenants commonplace.
Gompo Tashi Andrugtsang, one of the main leaders of the Tibetan rebellion, commented on this in his memoirs by stating:
“Critics of the Tibetan agrarian and social system are apt to overlook some very relevant factors which countered its apparent faults. In spite of differences of status or material possessions, there was no great gulf between the rich and the poor. The landowner was more a patriarchal head of household than an exacting or oppressive master. The universal belief in the principles and teachings of Buddhism encouraged, on the one hand, generosity and desire to improve the lot of the less fortunate and, on the other, the absence of envy or resentment on the part of the
Han Chinese propaganda repeats ad nauseum the allegation that in the old Tibet there were no schools, however there were several governmental efforts establishing public schools, many private schools were available, and the thousands of monasteries provided education to anyone, regardless of background or social status.
In his “Memories of life in Lhasa under Chinese rule” Tubten Khétsun relates his experience with schooling in the 1940s, first at one of the many private schools and then college at the Drepung monastery.
“This type of school suited the needs of the society at that time, and drew students from all social strata. .….. There was no set fee to be paid as a condition of attending school, and students paid different rates according to their means. …….the school gave exactly the same instruction to all students, regardless of the offerings they had made. ……. In Chinese Communist propaganda distributed both internally and externally, it is forcefully stated formerly only the Tibetan aristocracy had the opportunity of a formal education and that this was completely denied the ordinary people. Some foreigners have been misled by this without checking the facts for themselves and the allegation has been repeated in some foreign publications, and although the younger generation of Tibetans do not necessarily believe it, the fact that some foreigner has said so makes them doubtful, and if they lack determination to seek the truth, they do not bother to question those of us with direct experience of Tibetan society at that time about what it was really like.”
Catriona Bass writes of education pre Chinese occupation in her book “Education in Tibet: policy and practice since 1950”:
“Wealthy landowners or traders would make arrangements with religious or lay scholars to educate their sons and daughters in basic literacy and numeracy. Some families would gather a number of children together, sometimes educating the children of their servants, and, in the towns of Lhasa, Shigatse and Gyantse, small schools were established on this basis.”
Born in 1935, the current, fourteenth Dalai Lama, then still a teenager, also made many reforms in the short time he had as head of state. He established a reform committee which was charged with overseeing wide ranging reforms from the Judiciary, Public Education, Communications, Transport and other aspects of Tibetan society which the Dalai Lama intended to modernize and reform.
He quashed the practice of Debt Inheritance, breaking the chain of debt from one generation to the next and consequently exonerating the thus affected peasantry of any debt burden which may have encumbered them. He also declared an amnesty on all debt owed to the government, absolving all debtors of such obligations.
He also established an Independent Judiciary among other reforms.
On the agenda was a major land reform which would have seen the larger estates of the land owning families becoming wholly government owned and controlled again, and the land then allocated to the people who worked and cultivated it at the time, however the Chinese occupation terminated such efforts.
Even Goldstein argues that a link between the peasantry and feudalism is not only untenable, but that the peasantry were not serfs in the context of Tibetan society, but were often free to exonerate their obligation to the landowner and buy their own plot of land, and or / move to other estates, and even have their own employees working for them.
The many contemporary accounts from travellers, who had extensive first hand experience of Tibet as it was prior to the Chinese invasion, depict a country which was poor but content.
They consistently lack any such absurd descriptions as the CCP now tries to misrepresent, and foist on the old Tibetan society in an attempt to divert from the illegality of their occupation of the country.
What such travellers highlight though, is the gratuitous cruelty and barbarity the Chinese inflicted upon the Tibetans during times of military incursions and limited control they managed to exert at times over Tibet.
Certainly not the sort of onerous ‘serfdom’ CCP tries to portray Tibetan society before their occupation.
■ The notion of “Han” is in itself an invention which based its justification on the concept of a common people opposed to Manchu rule, and included all the people of very different cultural, linguistic and ethnic background and were earlier part of the Ming Dynasty.
The revolutionaries needed more than the term ‘yellow race’ which had wide currency at the time, and which of course by its very nature included the Manchu people.
This term ‘yellow race’ was used widely in the nineteenth century in the extensive process of self-victimisation and self pitying, namely the yellow race being ‘oppressed’ by the white race, in the course of blaming all ills of the late Manchu empire on these external influences.
Zhang Bingling, who morphed from being a Reformist to a fervent Revolutionary, introduced the term ‘Hanzhong’, Han race, which based its foundation in common surnames carried by this ‘Han race’. Historian Sima Qian, who purportedly lived between 145 and 90 BC, provided a basis for this with his mythical account of Chinese history, which credits Huangdi, 黄帝, or Yellow Emperor as the founder of the Chinese nation, and bringing order and structured government to earth, plus inventing just about every aspect Chinese civilization.
He was credited with having some 25 children, but here the numbers vary, and different accounts claim varying numbers of progenies, and sons.
Zhang Bingling made the mythical figure of the Yellow Emperor, who supposedly lived between 2697 and 2597 BCE, the arch ancestor of all Han people, which was based on the common surnames from the descendants of Huangdi.
It served the revolutionaries of the latter part of the fading Qing Empire to unite the disparate people under Manchu rule and foment the antagonism and common purpose required to overthrow the Qing rulers.
Today the notion of Han is deeply rooted in the psyche of the 'Chinese' and provides them with a sense of one race, one purpose and one nation.
Though genetically, nor culturally or ethnically, the Han race does not exist, but the term is used here for the purpose of identifying the people for whom the label is relevant in the context, and who now identify themselves to be of the 'Han race'.
The South African Ambassador Ndumiso Ndima Ntshinga reportedly opined: ” Obviously, the quality of the life of Tibetans have changed dramatically since 1959. It is quite encouraging to see that the survivors of that horrible system of feudalism lived through”.
The Chilean Ambassador Fernando Reyes Matta is quoted as having voiced his opinion “that it is essential to put together such documents, photographs and various references so that foreigners had the chance to learn more about the truth and the reality of Tibet.”
• In the aftermath of the financial crisis, western countries have succumbed to prostrating themselves to the Han nation in ever more indecorous manners.
In another development but patently related in its acquiescence to Chinese demands, the British Foreign Secretary David Miliband overturned a longstanding position of Britain to regard Tibet, implicitly, as an occupied country by not recognising China’s sovereignty over Tibet.
Miliband slyly included this bombshell buried in a statement on the ministry’s website: "Like every other EU member state, and the United States, we regard Tibet as part of the People's Republic of China."
China’s response was an intensified recalcitrant and harrying demeanour towards the Tibetan delegation which was to resume ‘negotiations’ with Chinese officials over Tibet, and blasted the exiled Tibetans and the Dalai Lama with ever more contemptible rhetoric.
 Tibet and the Qing Dynasty
It is noteworthy that this Agreement was entered into well before the Manchus had conquered the territories of the Han, which did not occur until 1644.
Therefore this Agreement was solely between Tibet and the Manchus and did not include the Han in any way.
This Agreement did, however, not preclude subsequent Manchu rulers and administrations from endeavouring to usurp the spirit of this Chö-Yön relationship, and seek to increase their power way beyond the agreed principles set out therein.
This, for one, led in 1728 to the establishment of the office of the Amban, the Emperor’s envoy in Lhasa. The Manchu Emperors though, without exception, appointed Manchus to the post of Amban, thus emphasizing the fact that this relationship was unequivocally between the Manchu Emperor and the Tibetan Dalai Lama, and that the Han, which under the Manchu Empire made up the majority population, were not part of this relationship.
With the issue of the “29 Point Ordinance for the Efficient Governance of Tibet“ in 1793 by the Qing Emperor Qianlong, who at the same time appointed Fu Kang’an as Amban, the Manchus sought to further increase their influence in Tibet.
Thus, they insisted, among other points on the adoption of parts of the Manchu judicial system and punishments.
Xiaoming Zhang, a CCP writer, confidently proclaims in his book ‘China’s Tibet’: “…….The basic principles formulated in the 29-Article Ordinance remained the standard for the administrative and Legal System in Tibet for more than the next hundred years.”
The Manchu presence in Tibet saw the introduction of such uniquely Han practises as “Ling Ch'ih”, known as ‘Death by a Thousand Cuts’, Boiling to death, the Cutting off of Limbs, the penetration of the Ear with an arrow, ripping asunder by horses or other means, lighting fires beneath suspended victims, etc. These were all alien forms of punishments to the Tibetans and instilled a deep loathing and abhorrence of the Manchu and Han presence among the population.
Wherever the Qing forces managed exert any power over Tibetans, they meted out these peculiar forms of Chinese ‘justice and punishments’.
Dr. Albert Shelton explicitly describes the “cooking of forty to fifty Tibetans” by the Han invaders, who witnessed their skeletons after the bodies were fed to the dogs.
The Manchu and Han used these forms of torture, such as “ling ch’ih’ and forced the Tibetan populace to witness such acts of barbarism in an attempt to cower them into submission and as a powerful deterrent to resistance, wherever they managed to exert any influence.
“Na-p’od-pas and Lum-pa-nas were done to death by the slicing process (ling-ch’ih), the two churchmen were slowly strangled, the remaining thirteen were decapitated by three cuts of the sword.”
He contends that this terrible scene, which the Tibetans were forced to witness, made a deep impression and traumatised the Tibetans for years thereafter.
Before being lynched in these uniquely Chinese ways, the condemned men were first paraded naked on their way to the execution ground, the ‘Tent of Death’ to further humiliate and dehumanise them.
Flora Shelton further relates accounts of such Han barbarities of “Ling ch’ih” by the notorious Zhao Erfeng, who managed to invade and occupy eastern Tibet between 1908 / 10. Erfeng used it with great indulgence to terrorise the Tibetan population there in this, and other barbaric ways peculiar to the Han Chinese.
In his book Journey to Lhasa and central Tibet by Sarat Chandra Das, writes:
“The Chinese punishment of the cangue is now adopted throughout Tibet, the criminals wearing it being also heavily chained.”
An American missionary wrote the following in a foreign press journal in Shanghai on his long time observation in Eastern Tibet:
“There is no method of torture known that is not practised in here on these Tibetans, slicing skinning, boiling, tearing asunder, and all… To sum up what China is doing here in Eastern Tibet, the main things are collecting taxes, robbing, oppressing, confiscating, and allowing her representatives to burn loot and steal.”
The Tibetans viewed these Han practises of judicial punishments as so barbaric, inhumane and completely alien to them, that once they had fully regained power over their own affairs they wasted no time, and under the guidance of the Great Thirteenth Dalai Lama decreed the Death Penalty as illegal, reformed the legal code and banned all forms of cruel corporal punishments such as mutilation.
In fact, Tibet maintained a code of conduct which dates as far back as Songtsen Gampo in the 7th century, based on Buddhist principles and forbade the mistreatment of peasants, or any member of Tibetan society, and the administering of any form of corporal punishment was the sole preserve of the central government.
Thus, Tibet was one of the very first countries in the world to outlaw Capital Punishment in 1898, a practise which is now extensively used in the CCP ruled Han nation, indiscriminately meted out to thugs, petty criminals, regime critics, Tibetans for ‘splittist activities’, and Falun Gong practitioners alike, so that some estimated Ten Thousand, (10,000) hapless people are exterminated in this way annually by the CCP.See Footnotes: i
Hence, what many early writers actually described, and today the Han CCP in their propaganda drive of demonisation depict as Tibetan barbarism, were in fact Chinese forms of torture and cruelty, executed by, and imposed on the Tibetans, by the Chinese themselves.
■ Today China runs, what they term Re-Education through Labour Camps, but in reality they are nothing more than slave labour camps, where the captives are imprisoned for mostly regime critical activities, such as exercising their constitutionally guaranteed freedoms of expression or practising their religion, and there they are worked and mistreated to death in large numbers.
Today, the CCP also runs a very lucrative Organ harvesting programme where kidneys, corneas, hearts and other organs are removed from executed convicts, but mostly from live victims in this 'Laogai' system, Falun Gong members, regime critics and Tibetan disappeared, and sold to paying recipients.

 Tibet and the RoC - Republic of China 1912–1949
During the reign of the Manchu empire, i.e. the Qing dynasty, the Han Chinese were forced to wear the Manchu style pigtails from the time they were conquered in 1644, and once the 1911 revolution gathered pace the Han would cut off their pigtails to show their “Freedom from Manchu Oppression” as Mao himself described it.
The revolution of 1911 was unequivocally an uprising by one race against another; by the Han against the Manchu.
The revolution even flew the white Han flag, which bore just one character; ‘Han’, in the clearest indication that the revolution was a fight by the Han against their invaders and overlords, the Manchu, which the Han deeply despised and resented.
All the passion and rhetoric by Sun Yat-sen and his co-conspirators at the time was designed to whip up utmost fervour and zealotry amongst the Han against their foreign overlords, the Manchu.
But this racist sentiment and loathing of their 'alien overlords', the Manchus, soon caught up with a realization that the hegemonistic aspirations of the Han race, essentially expounded and formulated by Sun Yat-sen, were exactly synonymous with what the much hated Manchus had done almost 300 years earlier; conquering the Han, and then ruled over them continuously ever since, which of course gave rise to the very reason for the revolution.
See Footnotes: i
Thus, in order to justify the conquest and subjugation of the other Nationalities’ indigenous lands and territories and ‘claim’ them as part of the new Han Nation, Sun Yat-sen, in an inspiration of thinly veiled duplicitous racism, changed tack.
Instead of continuing to fly the Han flag, the most visible and ostensible sign that the Han now were in control, he declared the ‘Republic of China’ a “Multiethnic State, composed of Han, Mongols, Tibetans, Uighurs and Manchus”.
In reality though, it was, then as it is today, solely the Han who hold all the power, in this ‘Multiethnic Nation’.
With this declaration the Han Chinese sought to legitimize their claim to the territories of all the other nations, comprising over 60% of today’s China, in spite of the fact that none of these nations were remotely willing participants, or had any share in the economic, military or political power.
And neither does any of these minorities today.
In fact, first in late 1911 Mongolia, and then in 1912 Tibet had just reasserted their independence. This of course was a catalyst to change tack for the Han Chinese, who sought to dominate all the territories of their erstwhile overlords, the so much loathed and despised 'alien' Manchus, (and of course much more by additionally including Tibet).
This stroke of racist genius by Sun Yat-sen, by enunciating the ever latent hegemonistic aspiration of the Han race, more than anything else, unites the Communists of mainland China and the Nationalists of Taiwan today in celebrating him as the ‘father of modern China’, though he wasn’t even in the country for the best part of the revolution!
Thus, he is credited by both sides for laying the foundations to the greater Han Empire of today; though no consideration to any legitimacy is ever entertained, given the forcible and involuntary inclusion of the other Nationalities.
The fact that the Manchus were considered an ‘Alien, occupying race’ and had to be overthrown and expelled belies any notion that the Han Nation could ever claim legitimacy to all the Manchu Empire’s territories now occupied, let alone Tibet, which never was under Manchu control.
See Footnotes: ii
Indeed, Sun Yat-sen’s conviction of the racist supremacy of the Han was such that he made the proclamation that “the Han had the rightful authority to rule all of ‘China’ and that all these territories were bestowed to the Han race”, even though, in the same breath, he proclaims that the Manchu were an ‘Alien Race’.
In a logical extension, the Tibetans, and the other Nationalities, must be counted amongst these ‘Alien Races’, nevertheless the Han assumed the ‘inalienable’ right to rule over them and their territory, along with the other three minorities, the Mongols, Uighurs and the Manchus. This is manifestly an extension and continuation of the century old racism, condescension and hegemonistic attitudes towards other races harboured by the Han race.
The ordinary people of the Manchu race paid a very heavy price, as once the Han had established themselves as the new power to be reckoned with, and the Manchu reign had collapsed, widespread ethnic cleansing took place and an orgy of Manchu slaughtering spread throughout the new republic. See Footnotes: iii
■ Sun Yat-sen, in a most bizarre show of deference to Han superiority, even went to the Yongle Emperor’s ( 永樂 / Perpetual Happiness, third emperor of the Ming Dynasty) tomb and addressed him as though he were present:
“The policies of the Manchus have been one of obdurate tyranny, motivated by a desire for eternal subjugation of the Han. The Manchus have governed the country to the everlasting detriment of the people. Today, the Han race has finally restored the government to the Han people. Your people have come here today to inform your Majesty of the final victory.”
■ The first president of the new republic of China, after the ‘provisional president Sun Yat-sen, Yuan Shikai, ‘invited’ Tibet to join the republic and asked for the acceptance thereof by Tibet.
The thirteenth Dalai Lama replied as follows:
“The Republic has only just been proclaimed and the national foundations are far from strong. It behoves the President to exert his energies towards the maintenance of order. As for Thibet, the Thibetans are quite capable of preserving their existence intact and there is no occasion for the President to worry himself at this distance or to be discomposed. The reason why the Thibetans do not approve of the Central Government is entirely due to the excessive ill-treatment inflicted upon them by the Chinese troops in Thibet. Their indignation has been roused. How many, to take an instance, of the temples and shrines have been set on fire or demolished by the Chinese troops, while the officers in command have been quite powerless! How could the Thibetans fail to oppose China?"
■ Dr. Sun Yat-sen wrote in his
“The Manifesto of the Military Government of the Revolutionary Brotherhood”:
1. To drive away the Manchus
“……… Now is the time to raise an army and overthrow the Manchu government and regain the sovereignty of our country. Such Manchus and such Han in the Manchu army as repent themselves and surrender to us will be pardoned. We will kill those Manchus who oppose us, and also all Han who traitorously helped the Manchus.”
2. To restore “China” to the Han
The Chinese state belongs to the Han; her political institutions should be administered by Han alone. We must drive away the Manchus and restore our China to the Han. If any are bold enough to support the foreign tribe, like Shih Ching-tang and Wu San-kuei of old, it is the duty of all Han to see that they are killed.
3. To establish a Republic
“……. A constitution will be promulgated for the Republic and every citizen will be obliged to obey it. If anybody plots to restore despotism in China, we must kill him.”
Such firebrand racist rhetoric would hardly be deemed befitting of a National Hero by most other Nations, but would rather condemn him as a felon and an odious racist, yet for the Han it strikes at the core of their world view and ‘values’; the noble, superior Han, versus the rest as barbarians who don't deserve to be treated as equals or even as humans.
Sun Yat-sen must shoulder the preponderance of the responsibility for the ensuing litany of racist crimes and the wholesale slaughter of Manchus under his watch.
 Under PRC Occupation
When the Chinese invaded independent Tibet in 1950, the Tibetan economy was flourishing, with trade thriving and taking place with India, all its neighbours, and countries as far as England and the rest of Europe.
There were as many as 2,500 to 3,000 monasteries in Central Tibet alone and over 6,000 in whole of the Tibetan Plateau.
Theoretically the government owned all the land in Tibet and shared it out to the monasteries, estates and peasants. In practice the land was mostly passed on hereditarily and so the monasteries cultivated somewhere between thirty five and fifty percent of the arable land, while the larger estates held a little less than a quarter and the government also about twenty to twenty five percent, with peasants and nomads cultivating the balance in their own right. Peasants also cultivated about half of the land as their own plots on the estates they worked on and paid rental in produce or labour to the manor.
An other group, the 'Tsongpa' made up a large section of society and earned their living as traders and craftsmen and various skilled trades.
There was also a section of society which pursued vocations which were seen as less desirable, butchers, tanners, beggars or travelling entertainers, and also ferrymen or itinerant labourers.
Monks at that time numbered about ten to fifteen percent of the male population, so the close interconnection between the monasteries and the general population was very widespread and permeated the whole of society, from peasantry to gentry.
The monasteries acted also as financial institutions, and extended loans to peasants and aristocrats alike, besides financing social projects for the benefit of the whole society, as well as loans to the government and larger trading companies.
They were the banks and treasury of the Tibetan economy and provided the necessary capital for all commerce and trade.
It is important to understand the close interactions and connections the whole Tibetan society had with the monasteries through monastic family members, where almost every family had a member in the ecclesiastic community.
This provided access to finance and resources through the monasteries, which cared for the welfare of all of society.
A close knit society with the fabric woven and steeped in Buddhism and kinship, forged by the harsh conditions the land imposed on its inhabitants!
This can bee seen in the profound and deep rooted reverence and veneration monks were held, and the monastic society as a whole, by all of Tibetan society. See Footnotes: i
Monasteries also took care of the supply of food staples and maintained granaries to store the harvest and distribute it as needed, and in times of shortage would see to equitable distribution.
They also held deposits in valuables of whatever nature, from gold, silver and anything of value borrowers would deposit, besides a vast accumulation of treasures of a proud heritage stretching back millennia, plus scriptures, texts and artworks of incalculable value.
All this amounted to virtually the total sum of Tibetan wealth, treasures and equity the country had accumulated through sweat, trade and industrious production over many millennia.
The monasteries also represented the social and religious hub and focal point of Tibetan society, the place of learning and education as they also acted as schools, the place to meet, to seek solace; the spiritual home for every Tibetan of whatever standing.
After the invasion, and particularly after the 59 uprising the Han Chinese went about to systematically destroy all the monasteries in Tibet, but not before they had looted them of the entire store of wealth, even all the granaries were looted to feed the Han invaders, every single scrap of valuables was stolen and taken back to China.
And what wasn’t of any immediate or obvious value in the eyes of the Han Chinese, like Buddhas or scriptures, pictures or artefacts was wantonly destroyed.
The entire population in turn was forced to hand over their personal valuables as well.
Anyone caught hiding anything deemed of value was severely tortured, brandished as a ‘reactionary’ or ‘counterrevolutionary’ and faced incarceration, life in a Laogai, or execution.
Most of the higher ranking lamas were tortured and killed, countless monks were incarcerated and disappeared in the many slave labour camps (Laogai) and were never seen again.
Out of the 6,000 monasteries, almost every single one, bar about six, was reduced to rubble by the Han Chinese, long before the onset of the Cultural Revolution.
Thus the Han Chinese looted the entire wealth of a sovereign nation, destroyed the entire heritage of a proud independent people and pursued the very last piece of meagre possessions even the poorest of farmer and peasant might have owned.
Every house was visited and looted, and even life stock and equipment was forcibly taken from every Tibetan.
As late as 1962, convoys of trucks were observed laden with this loot, taken from monasteries and forcibly appropriated from the Tibetan population, heading back towards China.
The so called “Agreement of the Central Government and the Local Government of Tibet on Measures for the Peaceful Liberation of Tibet” had this to say in point thirteen:
“13) The People’s Liberation Army entering Tibet shall abide by all the above-mentioned policies and shall also be fair in all buying and selling and shall not arbitrarily take a single needle or thread from the people.”
Countless tons of artefacts crafted in gold and silver were thus looted and molten down in china. Brass, wooden and other artefacts were either sold on the international market, molten down or destroyed.
In essence, Tibetan society was dispossessed of its entire assets, every possession, the entire cultural heritage; the whole fabric of Tibetan society was smashed, looted and destroyed.
This obliteration and looting of the entire inventory of temples is equal to any aggressor invading a country today, say Canada, the UK, US, China, or any other country, and pilfering the entire wealth from all the people, looting the treasury and all the banks, and destroying every bit of community assets, like town-halls, government buildings, schools, Universities, every single vestige of their entire civilisation built over thousands of years, wantonly destroyed. And simultaneously massacre all the clergy, administrators, public servants, teachers, educators, plus large section of society in addition.
Virtually nothing would remain, and the people would be left destitute and without any economic means for survival.
Tsering Dorje Gashi, in his book “New Tibet - Memoirs of a Graduate of the Peking Institute of National Minorities”, which was published in 1980, remarks:
"Priceless works of art, literature, and religious relics and works that were a model of Tibetan artistic perfection and achievement were taken out of the Potala and the various monasteries.
Idols and images made of gold, silver, brass and precious stones and metal were taken to China and eventually they found their way into the markets of Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo where antique-collectors from the West bought them for exorbitant prices. A rough estimate of the foreign exchange earned by China from the sale of Tibetan religious and art objects is more than 80 billion American Dollars."
This was in 1980, yet does not take into account all the gold and silver artefacts which were molten down by the Han, plus everything else they've looted.
In 1962, well before the onset of the cultural revolution (1966-76) the Panchen Lama stated that “china’s democratic reforms in fact had already reduced the number of monasteries by some 97 percent and decimated the monastic population by 93 percent.
Of the estimated 600,000 ecclesiastic population prior to the invasion, over 120,000 were murdered, executed and tortured to death, plus many more were forcibly defrocked, forced to publicly copulate with the opposite gender and were subjected to many more forms of depraved humiliations and barbarities.
It was in fact a wilful and systematic annihilation of an entire heritage of a once proud and independent country.
As early as in their 1959 report on Tibet the ‘International Commission of Jurists’ has accused China of Genocide, and the numbers of deaths in Tibet under Chinese rule would qualify for such claims:
1.2 million dead, which is broken down as follows:
36% in combat, 28% starvation, 14% in prisons and labour camps, 13% by execution, 8% through torture, 1% suicide.
China violated the ‘Convention for the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide’ in every aspect.
Violations include such acts as:
• Mass killings, indiscriminate aerial bombing and shelling of monasteries and villages, the deportation of several tens of thousands of children to China, murder, indiscriminate imprisonment, systematic rape, forcible marriage of monks an nuns, torture and cruel and degrading treatment on a large scale, violations of rights of privacy, forcible transfer of family members, indoctrination of children and turning them against their parents, large scale deportations of Tibetans, confiscation and compulsory acquisition of private property, suppression of freedom of thought by acts of genocide against Buddhists to eradicate Buddhism, freedom of expression through the destruction of scriptures, the oppression and arbitrarily imprisonment of members of the Mimang Tsongdu movement, cruel punishments to anyone just expressing a desire for Tibet as an independent country, the banning of all assemblies of a few people other than the Chinese organised sessions for the purpose of indoctrination, public vilifications and denunciations, denial of economic, social and cultural rights where all economic resources are used for supporting Chinese forces and new settlers, etc.
After the invasion the Han invaders sought to break resistance to their presence by intimidation and “re-education”.
They ordered meetings called “Thamzing” (批判鬥爭大會 or in short 批鬥大會) "Struggle Sessions", and everyone in every village had to attend.
These meetings amounted to nothing more than sessions of denigration, persecution and torture.
Children would be forced to denounce their parents, and often ordered to torture or kill them.
Nuns and monks would be forced into sexual intercourse in public and forced to marry.
Peasants would be ordered to torture their former landlords, or their revered Lamas, and often forced to execute them in various hideous ways imposed by the Han.
These hapless peasants would be primed for weeks by indoctrination and told all manner of fabricated lies to encourage them to perform this public castigation and retribution as a showcase to encourage others to follow suit.
Victims of such persecution were not only the obvious targets of former landowners or Buddhist Lamas, but anyone who didn’t completely acquiesce and showed any resistance to Han presence and dictate.
Peasants became targets in the same way, for not handing over their meagre possessions, for instance such as farm animals, ornaments, coins or anything else of value, or for not denouncing their landlord, lama, relatives or family members.
In order to inflict maximum terror, and as a deterrence to any resistance, the Han conducted these Thamzing sessions all over occupied Tibet, in every village and town.
They employed the whole arsenal of tortures known to them.
Some had urine or excrements forced down their throats, others were hung from their wrists with their hands tied behind their backs and had fires lit below them, or were torn asunder by horses or dragged behind a horse till they succumbed to their horrific injuries. Or they were tied and thrown into a river, had their tongue ripped out or buried alive.
Others were forced to inflict barbaric beatings against their own family members, parents, siblings, or their revered Lama, all under the threat of incurring sever beatings and torture themselves, or being executed for resistance and being a counter-revolutionary.
During, and after these Thamzing session many had their arms, ears, fingers, nose and genitals cut off, burned or mutilated, and the female victims routinely were gang raped by their Han tormentors, time and again and finally killed.
A monk, who begged the Han not to use the Buddhist scriptures they had taken from his monastery as toilet paper, had his arm cut off and mocked to ask god to grow him another one.
Many who did not satisfy the Han in every respect and perform every depravity asked of them, were selected for execution and paraded through the village to the execution ground, or transported into a slave labour camp called Laogai, where they inevitably died a slow and agonising death through deprivation, hunger and lack of even the most basic human needs of sanitation and care.
Once the Tibetan uprising was quashed in 1959, the Han Chinese went on to completely wipe out all Tibetan independence and identity and implemented their own form of slavery through collectivisation, disowned all the Tibetans of their land, and settled the country with their own kin.
Tibetans, farmers and nomadic herders alike were forced into communes, which amounted to no more than labour camps run by the Han, for the benefit of the Han.
Executions and torture was commonplace and the ripping out of the tongue was a practise employed by the Chinese to prevent the Tibetan victims from shouting “Long live the Dalai Lama” or “Free Tibet” before their inevitable death.
Anyone resisting the Chinese occupiers was either executed or imprisoned in one of the many Laogai.
Other forms of torture employed by the Han were: burying and burning alive, beating to death, disembowelling, crucifixion, beheading, etc.
The Han ordered the Tibetans to plant hybrid wheat varieties instead of the traditional barley, which is well suited to the Tibetan conditions, but which the Han didn’t like.
Thus the Tibetans were forced to plant this Han crop, which inevitably failed, leading to food shortages in Tibet.
Tibet never before experienced any famine in its two thousand year recorded history until the Han Chinese forced the Tibetans to plant their ill suited crop.
It was virtually only Tibetans which suffered from these devastating famines as the Han requisitioned the available crop for themselves.
The Chinese never brought any provision with them to support the occupying forces, but requisitioned supplies from the meagre production of food from the Tibetans, and this added to the dire food shortages even in years of relatively good harvest yields.
The same “Agreement of the Central Government and the Local Government of Tibet on Measures for the Peaceful Liberation of Tibet” stated in point sixteen:
“16) Funds needed by the military and administrative committee, the military area headquarters and the People’s Liberation Army entering Tibet shall be provided by the central People’s Government……”
Tibetans suffered greatly from the famine of 1959 – 61 which had resulted from the Great Leap. None of the areas of Tibet had poor harvests at that time, but all food was forcibly taken from the Tibetans for the Han Chinese in Tibet and even the provinces adjacent to Tibet. The Chinese explained that the Tibetans were now part of the Chinese masses and therefore bore responsibility to share the fate of the Han; they must also support the PLA and Han Chinese cadres in Tibet in return for the help which they had provided to Tibet.
In all some 300,000 to 400,000 Tibetans died of starvation as a result of Han mismanagement and the confiscation of their food supplies for the Han themselves.
■ Even under severe torture Tibetan peasants would refuse to denounce or accuse a monk, or physically harm them in one of the ubiquitous Thamzing sessions (so called ‘struggle sessions’, public gatherings where Tibetans were forced to denounce, torture or kill members of the community and often even their own family members) the Han Chinese would hold to inculcate the Tibetans of the “evils” of the old society they’ve come to destroy.
These peasants belie this propaganda smear, and demonstrate that the peasantry held no resentment against the monks, the monasteries, or even the gentry; quite to the contrary.
 The Present Situation in Tibet
Even thought Tibetans are supposed to be allowed more than one child, the reality is that in cities a strict one child policy is enforced, with second pregnancies compulsorily terminated.
Abortions are carried out until full term of nine months, where the baby is killed by injecting it with a poison, which inevitably induces abortion.
Even if the mother manages to evade the attention of the Chinese authorities and gives birth to a healthy baby, it invariably is taken away and killed by the medical staff, and the mother is then told that the baby was still born, even though she could hear the baby’s first cry.
Thus, infanticide is part of the population control of Tibetans by the Han Chinese.
Here is an account of one Tibetan Doctor who had her second pregnancy forcibly terminated:
“First they insert a sort of flexible rubber tube with a pointed end into the cervix. There is no medicine in this. They leave this inside for 24 hours. Because it stimulates the birth canal, which opens up slowly and gives way to the flow of blood, a lot of bleeding starts after two hours. After one day they take it out. It has become bigger inside so it is easier for the knife to get inside. They insert an instrument which has a sort of long handle with a knife at the end. They put this inside and start to move it around, cutting the fetus in pieces…… Once it has been reduced to small pieces it is removed by using a sort of compressor. ……..Besides the lack of proper medical equipment to do that, I was not even given anaesthesia and thus experienced excruciating pain at the time. No words have the power to express the excruciating pain I experience during the operation. There was no medical treatment afterwards…. I do not know what has been damage inside me…My physical and mental well-being have been badly affected. After the abortion I was not well …… I had a period twice a month, sometimes for 15 days at a time…..”
As a consequence of such crude and makeshift ‘medical’ procedures infections, long term excruciating pain and complications, irregular periods and bleeding etc. are the norm and endemic, and in many instances the woman dies as a result of such inept medical conduct, and in at least one report which came to light a woman ended up paralysed.
The Han Chinese operate mobile birth control units which visit every village and town. Everyone must attend or face a fine of equal up to five years salary.
There, Tibetan women are forcibly sterilized by the Han Chinese team, which, under a quota system with financial incentives for them, is highly motivated to enforce as many sterilisations as possible.
These sterilisations are carried out in the same unethical fashion as abortions, with severe complications widespread among the Tibetan victims of such inept procedures.
Tibetan women who resist are threatened with having their valuables or household items confiscated, or face heavy fines, which they possibly could never pay. Loosing their job or other economic sanctions are also routinely used to force Tibetan women to submit to these forced sterilisations.
Women who have forcibly been sterilised by these roaming teams report excruciating pain, with no anaesthetic being administered, and that they literally had their fallopian tubes ripped out from their ovaries during their ‘operation’.
Severe long term complications are a routine consequence of such unethical ‘medical conduct’ for these Tibetan women.
Economic sanctions against Tibetan women who have additional children include permanent demotions and the potential loss of employment for both parents, as well as fines equating up to to 6 years salary.
‘Illegal’ children are denied legal papers which would give them the right to identity, attend school, own property, travel, participate in any legal work, or obtain a ration card.
The economic situation for Tibetans is as dire as all other aspects of their lives.
Many get forcibly removed from their land to make way for settlements for new Chinese immigrants, with no compensation to the Tibetans for the loss of their land. Recently several hundred thousand of Tibetan farmers, herders and nomads have forcibly been evicted from their traditional lands and housed in ghetto style compounds at their own expense without compensation. There they face unremitting surveillance, with armed PAP being constantly stationed outside such dour compounds. These ghettos are most often located in remote areas, too far to commute to any work.
This leaves these dispossessed Tibetans without means of earning a living, having been stripped of their entire economic base, land, farm animals, even being prohibited from gathering wild herbs and fruit on their traditional lands.
The new Han migrants are encouraged through very lucrative incentives to settle in Tibet, a policy designed to sinocize Tibet, and in the process to eradicate Tibetan identity.
This is in an attempt to legitimize Chinese annexation of Tibet, once the Tibetan Diaspora, in their own land, has largely been eliminated.
Annual wages for Chinese employees are some 87% higher in Tibet than in China. Han Chinese entrepreneurs receive special tax exemptions and loans at very low interest rates, whereas for Tibetans to start an enterprise in their own homeland, even just getting a license to do so is virtually impossible.
Han Chinese settlers also enjoy benefits of three months paid vacation back in China, special pension, healthcare, schooling and housing benefits, subsidized food; none of which is available to the indigenous Tibetans. Some of these preferential benefits are escalated the longer Chinese settler remain in Tibet.
Further discriminations against Tibetans include: virginity testing, verbal abuse, preferential treatment for Han workers e.g. grants of leave or promotions not granted to Tibetans, higher wages for Han Chinese, dismissal if a family member is deemed to be a “separatist”, widespread sexual harassment by Chinese of Tibetan women, sexual extortion under the threat of loosing their jobs, etc.
With this background of economic disadvantage and clear discrimination, it is impossible for Tibetans to compete on any level with Chinese settlers.
Inevitably most businesses and shops are owned by Chinese and hiring practices by the Han Chinese favour their own kin, leaving Tibetans unable to benefit from any economic improvement.
Indeed, this so called economic growth is proving a clear disadvantage to Tibetans as the inevitable price increases, the massive influx of Han Chinese, subsidies and development for the benefit of these settlers, leaves Tibetans ever further behind and unable to compete, and as a consequence Tibetans are severely disenfranchised and suffer a much lower standard of living.
The schooling provided for Tibetans in most areas in the TAR is often of very little value to students if any at all, that is if there are schools available.
Very few if any of the primary level teachers are qualified, for middle school about one third are not qualified and for High School only about forty percent are qualified; that is sixty percent have no experience or qualifications to teach.
Reports by students and parents describe a situation where the Chinese teachers would appear some days for a while and then go to run their restaurant in town, leaving the students to their own devices, and of course untaught.
These Han “teachers” only speak in Mandarin, a language foreign to most Tibetan students, and hence they gain very little to nothing from such teachers, even if, in the few instances, they apply themselves to the teaching job they’re paid for.
This is a very widespread situation affecting Tibetan students, relegated to the status of third class citizens in their own country and consigned to ‘dustbin’ classes reserved for Tibetans only.
However, the Han Chinese are closing down large numbers schools run by Tibetans who dedicated themselves to fill the vacuum and meet the need for education for Tibetan children. One such recent casualty was the Vocational Education School, in Driru County, Nagchu Prefecture, which was financed with support from the International Red Cross Society.
The curriculum included English, Tibetan and Chinese languages, it also taught physics, medicine, chemistry, art and mural paintings. The school had over 250 pupils and a staff of 20 teachers.
Thereafter the Han Chinese converted this school into a state run school and dismissed all staff except for the founder teacher, Tenzin Thabkhey, but demoted him to a lowly position.
Today, locals report that no serious learning is taking place there and the teachers just ‘while their time away’.
Many other schools financed and run by Tibetans have been closed down by the Han Chinese, one other example is the ‘Pad-kar School’ founded and built by Lobsang Nyandrak who mortgaged his personal property, and raised donations from local Tibetan people in Nagchu County, Nagchu Prefecture. The school had over 200 pupils and taught a similar range of subjects to eager pupils for free.
The Han Chinese’s program they tout as Affirmative Action or Positive Discrimination in education provides another tool for the marginalisation of the Tibetan people and their culture.
Schools where Tibetan children can get a higher education are not situated in Tibet, but are located in mainland China.
These middle schools are provided after passing examination and are designed to thoroughly sinicize young Tibetans in a process of grooming them for administrative position in the TAR.
The rationale is clear; after these children spent most of their formative years away from their families, Tibet and Tibetan culture in far away mainland China and are exclusively exposed to Chinese indoctrination and way of thinking they can then become trusted leaders and administrators in the Tibetan areas, being of Tibetan ethnicity but with the minds of Han Chinese.
This course of discrimination by inverse action is part of the CCP’s policy of eradicating every aspect of Tibetan culture and identity, controlling the Tibetan People's minds, and leads them to believe they could use such terms as ‘affirmative action’ in their papers, reports and propaganda, which are all one and the same.
The recent series of Earthquakes in eastern Tibet once again brought the institutionalized and widespread Han racism into clear focus.
A number of reports from Tibetans in the affected areas smuggled out all highlight the authorities’ and general population’s racist attitude towards the Tibetan people.
In areas populated mainly by ethnic Tibetans the ‘relief effort’ was anything but an effort to rescue injured and trapped victims, mostly Tibetans but a mere show of ‘heroic efforts by the PLA’ while the cameras rolled and the President and Premier were in attendance.
Any real effort was carried out by local Tibetan people and monks from surrounding areas, and without the benefit of any equipment or logistical support by the state.
In fact these volunteer rescuers were systematically harassed, threatened and their tireless rescue work hindered and thwarted by every means; and with the arrival of the state media circus and Hu Jintao’s appearance on the scene they were hounded away and threatened with arrest if they’d returned.
Instead of genuine rescue workers, the affected areas were swamped with PAP, People’s Armed Police, whose only task appeared to be the hindrance and prevention of any unofficial relief efforts such as the ones carried out by local volunteer monks and ordinary Tibetans.
The following are excerpts of one such letter, translated by "High Peaks Pure Earth", reporting on the relief efforts:
More than two hundred monks left the monastery for Kyegudo to rescue the people who were buried underground …
As we contacted the local rescue office in the town to identify the location where we could start our work of saving people’s lives, we were told that the office was already closed for the day and they suggested that we contact the office the next day.
We knew it was urgent so we just ran to all the places where there were people likely to be trapped underground after the earthquake.
When the monks used ropes to remove the broken beams and tilestones, a soldier appeared before us and asked “What are you doing?” We replied “there is a student down there in the ruins.” He took a glance at the scene and said “ha ha, this student is already dead, his head is smashed, and it's dangerous to stand on the rubble.”
However, in order to save the life of the student, a monk told the Chinese man "I have no regrets if I can save the life of the student by entering into the hole.” But he was refused to do so and we could not do anything but just try to dig the rubble from the front side of the building with the Chinese soldiers.
When we were working so hard to get close to the bottom of the rubble, the soldiers were just staring at us in a surprised manner. After a while, the media arrived at that spot and another surprising incident that occurred was that a man who was said to be the leader of the region grabbed the shoulder of a monk and rudely said “get out of here, get out of here.”
When we were leaving that location, all the soldiers picked up the digging instruments and the ropes and pretended to be rescuing the lives of the people underneath while the media were taking pictures of them.
All the soldiers left after they had co-operated with the filmmakers and they were said to have gone to another rescue location in the town.
While the soldiers were going to have lunch, a young boy was begging with tears in his eyes that the soldiers come back to rescue his people as soon as possible. By seeing this scene with my own eyes, I felt so sad and suffered tremendously. The rescue team of the armies went back to their camps for meals whenever they were slightly hungry.
After thinking about this for a while, I realised that all the TV programmes confused my mind and each of the people shown on TV was a perfect actor.
All the TV programmes are saying that the people from different nationalities are united and working side by side and the touching moments of helping each other can be seen everywhere. But, in reality, there is more disappointment and anger amongst the people of China and the Tibetan people.
One of the unfair, sad, and disheartening things is that they claimed that all the rescue work done by the monks and ordinary Tibetans were counted as the merit of the Chinese rescuers. The truth is that the whole city was guarded by heavily armed police. I was thinking of how it would be useful if the government sent more rescue teams instead of sending more security forces to control the people in the region. After I got another moment to think about the policy of the regime, I wondered what the target was of the guns carried by the soldiers? When I realised that the real targets of the guns are the people of Kyegudo who had just lost their loved ones, tears started to fall from my eyes.
I had heard Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao arrived in Kyegudo. Although Wen said “your loss is our loss and your suffering is our suffering”, which allegedly moved many people in the region. However, the effect of his visit was obviously that all the corners of the town were blocked and the rescue workers turned into actors of the state TV news.
On the fifth day after the earthquake, President Hu Jintao visited the earthquake region and greeted the rescue soldiers by saying “you must be very tired now and I want to express my sincere thanks to your great efforts.” He did not utter a single word about the fifteen thousand monks and nuns who were tirelessly working on the ground. On the contrary, a lot of incidents of abusing and torturing the monks and nuns were taking place and the work they are doing is threatened by saying “it is time to restrain.”
I can confidently say here that we did a better and more efficient job than what the soldiers did and we did not do anything illegal.
The road towards the town and all the roads inside the town were closed for more than 11 hours while Hu Jintao was visiting.
All the artificial political show and senseless action of the officials indeed delayed the time to rescue the people who were crying for help from underneath the rubble as well as distributing food to those who were starving and dying. However, since the Chinese are good at acting and propaganda, it seems that the Chinese government has drawn the eyeballs of the international community.
Performing political drama on the stage built above the lives of thousands of people is another tragic scene and an inhumane action.
Repercussions of the 2008 Uprising
The racist repression has sharply intensified since the closure of the Olympics and the gaze of the world media has turned elsewhere and has taken on a disturbingly sinister and particularly callous nature, with a sharp increase in arbitrary arrests, prosecution on purely trumped up charges, torture and extrajudicial killings.
Since then the Chinese Government and its authorities have been executing their own avowed version of ‘Pay back”, (秋后算帐) ‘Settling accounts after the autumn harvest’, and have been targeting the elite of Tibetan society, where scores of prominent business people, writers, artist, musicians, bloggers and others have been arrested and charged with sedition and other purely invented charges; to list just a few examples:
Kalsang Jinpa, Jangtse Donkho and Buddha, sentenced on the 28/10/10 for inciting ‘splittism’ to 3 and 4 years jail.
Sonam Tsering, sentenced to death for leading a protest on the 14/3/08. Seven others were sentenced to 7, 7, 5, 5, 5, 4, and 1 years for aiding the evasion of his arrest.
Lhawang Dekyi and Nordon sentenced to 3 years jail in January/2010 for leading a peaceful protest.
Earlier they were paraded through their town along with 13 other Tibetan prisoners, shaven, chained hands and feet, to intimidate the population.
Tashi Dhondup, sentenced to 1 year seven months for producing ‘subversive songs’.
Thupten Nyima, sentenced in September 2010 to 2 years for leading a peaceful protest on the anniversary of the 08 uprising.
After the 2008 uprising the CCP propaganda went into damage control, and one party of journalists who was given their carefully stage managed and controlled tour was suddenly interrupted by a group of 14 Tibetan Monks, joined by one Monk who acted as guide for his English language skills, at Labrang Monastery, who implored them and related their plight and warned them not to believe their hosts’ propaganda.
Most of these brave Monks were arrested; Thabkhe Gyatso was sentenced to 15 years jail and Tsultrim Gyatso to life imprisonment for their courageous stand in front of the world’s public gaze.
The arrested have been severely tortured and two, Jamyang Jinpa and Sangey Gyatso, have died of the horrendous beatings and torturing suffered at the hands of their Han tormentors.
Racist massacres are carried out on a regular basis against Tibetans.
Every protest gathering by local Tibetans is a prime target for the Han authorities to open fire on peaceful protesters, and to inflict maximum carnage, and as a deterrent against opposition to their illegal rule.
Since the closing of the Olympics well over 200 Tibetans have been massacred in this way and thousands seriously injured, scores have been tortured to death and about a thousand Tibetans have simply disappeared after being arrested by the Han authorities.
But these racist ‘incidents’conveniently go by and large unreported in the so called respectable western press.
 Religious Freedom
The Han CCP is proclaiming that Tibetans enjoy full Freedom of Religion and that they support and assist monasteries financially and otherwise.
Recently the Han Chinese have installed CCTV cameras in most monasteries to control the monks’ every activity, they maintain a tight security presence around the clock, and even opened Police stations inside, or right next to many monasteries.
Not only are the number of monks and nuns strictly controlled and limited, the curriculum and extent of the teachings is also controlled and prescribed by the Han Chinese with many aspects of traditional teachings banned for being deemed to be “too politically sensitive”.
These restrictions and transformations render the Buddhist teachings almost meaningless, to the point of having become an instrument of Han CCP indoctrination and brainwashing.
Monks must pass exams in political ideology, denounce the Dalai Lama and are required to swear allegiance to local communist party authorities, or be expelled from monastic life.
Politics is one such subject prescribed, and monks must undergo such political indoctrination, pass exams in patriotism, prove their ‘love for the motherland’ and denounce the Dalai lama, or they forfeit the right to be a monk.
As an example, the correct answer to one of the political questions is:
"The Dalai is the head of the Serpent and the Chieftain of the separatist organization conspiring for independence in Tibet and he is the root-cause of all social instability in Tibet."
This psychological terror strikes at the very heart of Tibetan identity and their most treasured principles.
Such willful humiliation is what compels many monks into committing suicide rather than having to renounce and pervert their deepest and most sacred convictions.
Reports list literally dozens of monks who commit suicide annually rather than become a lackey to the Han Chinese and betray their very own Tibetanness and convictions.
If a monk is expelled he will almost certainly be unable to find work, and will thereafter be treated as a criminal by the Han authorities.
The teaching of Buddhism is also an ongoing process of learning and investigation.
However, the Han Chinese have prohibited the studies towards, and examinations for a Geshe Lharampa Degree for 15 years, which is equivalent to a PhD in Tibetan Buddhism.
It has now been ‘reinstated’, not out of any concern for religious freedom or human rights, but as a tool to further humiliate and indoctrinate Tibetans, pervert their religion, and in the process prevent the true spirit of Buddhism from re-emerging.
Now candidates are required to study, and pass exams on six political ideology books written by the CCP.
All this clearly is designed to render the teachings of Buddhism unattractive and meaningless, and in doing so the Han perverted it into a tool for the indoctrination, humiliation and oppression of Tibetans.
In a clear exploit of scheming and fomenting the chasm which has plagued the exiled Tibetan community over the propitiation of Dorje Shugden, the Han Chinese are favouring and rewarding monasteries, which follow this practice, with money taken form other monasteries.
Monks report that often donations of money they received for the monastery had been confiscated by the Han Chinese.
They also report a climate of fear and mistrust, as probably every monastery has been infiltrated by paid undercover moles posing as monks, to the point of monks even mistrusting their own superiors, as they have all been selected by the Han authorities on grounds of their ‘trustworthiness’ and ‘loyalty’ to the Han nation.
Tourists report that they were arrested for relics they had taken into Tibet and given to some monk in a monastery, such as photos of the Dalai Lama and tapes of his teachings. Later, these same monks were usually present at the police station to identify the unwitting tourists.
Monks also report that prostitutes regularly appear in monasteries sent by the Han authorities to tempt them into breaking their vows of celibacy.
Further restrictions monks face are bans on the use of the internet, mobile phones, DVD’s and Videos.
The following is but a very small sample of recent cases, providing a glimpse of what monks, and Tibetans in general, have to endure in arbitrary arrests on trumped up charges, and the repression of their basic rights and freedoms of expression:
• Abbot Khenpo Jinpa was arrested and subsequently imprisoned for three years for the alleged distribution of leaflets in support of independence and the Dalai Lama.
• Rongye Adrak was sentenced to eight years in prison for inciting “separatism” by calling for the return of the Dalai Lama.
Three Tibetans who witnessed his arrest and had concerns over his fraudulent trial were themselves arrested for allegedly attempting to provide information to foreign organizations.
They were subsequently sentenced to ten, nine and three years in jail for the “crime” of “leaking intelligence” and “endangering national security”.
• A village leader, Penpa, was arrested and imprisoned for three years for allegedly being in possession of material relating to the Dalai Lama’s Kalachakara teachings.
• Choeying Khedrub was jailed for life for allegedly “endangering state security” and “supporting splittist activities”.
Many other monks were sentenced to life for the same alleged “crimes”.
• Tenzin Delek Rinpoche was framed and sentenced to death on trumped up charges, his supposed co-conspirator was executed immediately. Rinpoche was a very popular Lama and was a thorn in the side for the Han authorities for his independent mindedness, conservationist stance, assistance to nomads and support for Tibetan identity.
Anyone who is familiar with the conditions of prisons in Tibet and the treatment Tibetans are subjected to once incarcerated by the Han Chinese, for whatever trumped up charges, will be aware of the abject horror that awaits these hapless victims of Han racism.
The 11th Panchen Lama, Gedun Choekyi Nyima, identified by the Tibetans as the reincarnation of the previous Panchen, was abducted by the Chinese in 1995 at age 6, along with his family and teachers, and none of whom has ever been seen since.
The Han Chinese have installed their own puppet Panchen Lama, and use him for their propaganda purposes.
On his rare ventures out of Beijing to Tibet, monks in monasteries he visits must attend his audience, and they are sometimes bribed with 100 yuan, in propaganda stunts for footage of smiling monks ‘adoring their Panchen Lama’, to show how much he is ‘revered and respected’ by the Tibetan monks.
However he is simply referred to as the ‘Han Panchen’, and Tibetans wish nothing more than the return of their real Panchen Lama, if he is still alive, and of course the return of the Dalai Lama.
See Footnotes: i
In monasteries where tourists are likely to appear, there are plainclothes PAP in constant attendance. In remoter areas armed PAP is there in full regalia, ever present and controlling every activity day and night.
Monasteries are completely under the control of the Han CCP through their Democratic Management Committees, and their every activity and finance is regulated, controlled, and permissions have to be sought for any activity monks might want to undertake.
As part of true Buddhist teachings, monks will cultivate the Four Immeasurables, and thus after long and arduous training will transcend the mundane mindset of referential thinking and be detached from such follies of likes, dislikes, hate, anger, sorrow and attachment.
This is one aspect which can not be regulated, as it is part of meditation practices, and just requires the utmost undivided focus and attention.
Thus, a monk will be able to forgive and see their tormentors as ‘teachers’ who provide the ultimate ‘test’ for the application and realization of the Four Immeasurables.
This explains how monks, even after thirty years of constant torture and torment at the hands of their oppressors, bear no grudge or animosity towards their tyrannizing captors, and keep their smiles, as though their lives were one of constant bliss under Han occupation.
See Footnotes: ii
Some other measures to oppress Tibetans and their religious freedom include:
• Indoctrination sessions, which monks have to endure on a mostly daily basis, and these have now also been extended to business and government employees.
• A strict prohibition on pictures of the kidnapped 11th Panchen Lama and the much vilified 14th Dalai Lama, at the threat of very lengthy prison sentences.
• Permissions have to be sought from the Religious Affairs Bureau, RAB, for any activity a monastery wishes to undertake, or for a monk to travel outside his district and give teachings.
• A recent refusal by the RAB to grant permission for an annual religious event at the Tsodham Monastery in early 2010 is but one example of the RAB’s rigorous control and flagrant denial of religious freedom for Tibetans.
• Some 500 monks who originated from outside the TAR were expelled from monasteries in Lhasa and have never been allowed back since 2008.
Tibetan Monks and lay people, in an attempt to avoid the repressive controls and interference by the Han authorities have built new quarters known as Gars for the purpose of teaching and practising their religion. However they have drawn the same unwelcome attention as the traditional monasteries and have been closed down and demolished.
One of these, Larung Gar Religious Institute, which was situated in the Sichuan province was destroyed by the Han authorities. It had some 1,000 quarters for students of Buddhism, and at its peak had over 10.000 practitioners from Tibet, including a thousand from China, plus many from all parts of the world.
■ Gyaltsen Norbu, an exiled Tibetan monk now living in India provides the following testimony:
"In 2003, the Panchen Zuma visited our monastery. Everyone who came to visit him was given 100 Yuan and a Khata [offering scarf]. Pictures were taken of him giving head-touching blessings to the local people. It was like a show. Honestly speaking, no one was happy with that, because we have no faith in him. But it was ordered by the Government and we had to do what we were told."
■ Here is an account of one monk released after 33 years of continuous Han Chinese abuse:
“I became a Buddhist monk when I was ten. When the Chinese invaded Tibet in 1959 I was twenty-nine years old. The Chinese arrested me for putting up posters that Tibet is an independent country. Because of this “crime”, I spent thirty-three years in Chinese prisons and labour camps."
The monk shared some of the details of his life in prison. He said that the Chinese guards wanted to see who would survive their torture and who would die.
"In the name of this “curiosity” they repeatedly tortured and humiliated prisoners. They would tie rope around the prisoners’ necks and pull back their arms, dislocating shoulders and elbows. The guards would lash the prisoners to beams and beat them with metal pipes and wooden boards studded with nails, until the prisoners could no longer control their bodily functions.
In the summer’s heat, the guards dangled their prisoners above a fire, or they dripped boiling water onto the prisoners’ naked bodies in the cold of winter. The prisoners were yoked to ploughs and forced to till the prison lands.
Because they were given only a cup of soup a day, they stayed alive by eating leather, grass, bones, mice, worms, insects, and, on rare and fortunate occasions, food that was meant for the pigs."
The monk told how the guards knocked out all his teeth and beat his head so he became deaf in one ear.
They split his tongue with a cattle prod, broke his nose with metal pipes, and tried to rip out his eyes. He showed us scars on his wrists from self-tightening handcuffs and rope burns on his neck and arms.
His arms could no longer extend.
 Denigration and Vilification
An exhibition in the Potala “Wrath of the Serfs” depicted 106 clay statues in various situations of ‘horrors’ which the serfs purportedly had to endure.
This display of distortion and denigration made all manner of outrages claims, such as monks burying children alive in the foundations of new monasteries.
This exhibition was categorised into the sections:
“Serfs Rise in Struggle an Yearn for Liberation”
“Feudal Estate Owners’ Manors: Miserable Infernos on Earth”
“Lamaseries: Dark Man-Eating Dens”
“Local Reactionary Government of Tibet: Apparatus of Reactionary Rule”
The exhibition was required viewing by tourists for many years, even though it had the effect of eliciting incredulity and amusement, and exposing the Han Chinese as manipulators of the historical facts, rather than the Tibetans as the villains it attempted to portray, for it was so outrageously histrionic and melodramatic.
In 1963 the Chinese released the movie “Serf” which was shown all over China in an attempt to vilify and depict the old Tibetan society as cruel and backward, in an underlying theme almost beyond any credibility.
This had a profound impact on Han Chinese who, after millennia of such dearly nurtured attitudes, would have had very little good sense to question the portrayal of the Tibetans in such demeaning and condescending terms. This propaganda flick at the same time portrayed the PLA as compassionate and benevolent, who altruistically came to help the Tibetans to improve their lives, and even called the soldiers an army of ‘Bodhisattvas’.
This is a Buddhist term denoting a Being seeking Enlightenment and practising altruistic compassion and benevolence; a truly bizarre twist of duplicitous propaganda, given the CCP’s relentless demonising of the Buddhist religion and its adherents.
See Footnotes: i
But the systematic denigration and vilification is not just confined to media such as movies or exhibitions, it permeates every aspect of communication and also appears in subtler and more insidious forms: Novels, TV, History Books, the reporting of News, even Sitcoms, Plays, Textbooks, News Papers, in fact every aspect of communication is employed.
Scenes of burning shops and cars were shown ad nauseam around the clock, underscored with the most vitriolic and inflammatory commentary to instil utmost resentment and odium amongst their only real constituency, the Han, against the Tibetans. They were constantly portrayed as ungrateful and ‘biting the hand that’s lifting them out of their backwardness’, with most Han Chinese referring to Tibetans as “white-eyed wolves”, inferring their ungratefulness at all the ‘help they’ve received from the Han people’.
In the aftermath of the protests, the Han Chinese arrested several thousand Tibetans, perhaps as many as six thousand, of which some one thousand are still missing, with their whereabouts unknown. Reliable sources report them as being surreptitiously moved to Qinghai, a known centre for organ harvesting.
Read more on the Laogai system here.
Tibetans who have been arrested after the protests report a sinister underlying attitude by the Han Chinese of “This is our chance” and “Settling accounts after autumn harvest” (qiu hou suan zhang)”; a mindset of overt and unmitigated racism, which goes some way towards explaining the gratuitous brutality routinely experienced by detainees at the hands of the Han Chinese.
At least ten, but possibly many more, extrajudicial killings have come to light, that is Tibetans who have been so severely tortured and beaten that they died as a result, either while in custody or after their release, in connection with arrests after the 2008 protests.
The Chinese have sentenced scores of Tibetans to death and many received sentences ranging from lengthy terms to life imprisonment.
In the case of two Tibetans condemned to death, Loyak and Lobsang Gyaltsen, Xinhua opined that these two “must be executed to allay the anger of the people”.
The Nangpa La Pass Incident on the 26th September 2006 is but a small illustration of the process of vilification and inversion of the facts by the Han Chinese. It is also a clear demonstration of the deep rooted racism, condescension and contempt the Han reserve for the Tibetans.
While the whole world was witness to the true events thanks to this video below, Xinhua, the mouthpiece of the Han CCP first denied any such incident occurred, then was forced to admit that ‘an incident’ had occurred, but claimed that the border guards first tried to persuade the Tibetans to return and go home, but then were attacked by them and so they had to defend themselves and in the process shot and wounded two people.
See Footnotes: ii
Everything Tibetans are allowed to hear, see or read is tightly controlled and prescribed by the Han Chinese.
No Tibetan Textbooks are allowed to originate from Tibetan authors, any that do exist in the Tibetan language are translations from Mandarin.
Newspapers are mainly translations of the CCP’s own mouthpiece, Xinhua, and according to reporters who have worked in the media in Tibet, ninety nine percent of what’s published is form such predetermined sources.
The strict control of all media in Tibet is run by Han Chinese, mostly CCP members, and heavy penalties are meted out to anyone transgressing the limits of censorship. One Tibetan journalist who escaped to India summed it up as follows: "We were all afraid. Anyone who defies the censors can expect the worst".
Recent convictions of Tibetans for ‘infringing’ CCP censorship in connection with the internet and writings alone include:
• Dasher, sentenced to 10 years for allegedly sending photos and reports of the 2008 riots via internet abroad.
• Kunga Tseyang, sentenced to 5 years for posting material on the internet.
• Kunchok Tsephel, sentenced to 15 years jail for allegedly divulging “state secrets”.
• Tseyang, sentenced to 5 years prison for allegedly writing “separatist” articles and posting them on the internet.
• Tsephel, a well know intellectual, writer and founder of the internet site Chodme was sentenced to 15 years jail for content on the site.
• Gyaltsing, sentenced to 3 years in prison for allegedly ‘communicating information to contacts outside China’, after he was intercepted downloading photos of the Dalai Lama.
• Norzin Wangmo, sentenced to 5 years in jail for talking about the situation in Tibet over the phone and internet.
• Migmar Dhondup, a passionate conservationist, sentenced to 14 years in prison for “espionage”. His charity work included working with impoverished communities, protecting the environment and encouraging Tibetans to preserve what’s left of Tibetan culture and language.
• Dhondup Wangchen, sentenced to 6 years imprisonment for his brave attempt of giving Tibetans a voice and letting them express their views on the Olympics in this short movie, "Leaving Fear Behind" which can be viewed here.
• Dolma Kyab, sentenced to ten and a half years in prison for alleged “espionage”. Dolma, a passionate teacher and writer wrote a book, unpublished of course, about Tibetan history, religion and geography.
In a letter smuggled out of prison he wrote: "Chinese officials think that what I wrote about nature and geography was also connected to Tibetan independence. This is the main reason of my conviction. But according to Chinese law, the book alone would not justify such a sentence. So they announced that I am guilty of the crime of espionage."
This is but a very small sample of the repression Tibetans face on a daily basis at the hands of the Han Chinese.
In all it is estimated that over 50 Tibetans were arrested and sentenced to lengthy prison terms just in connection with disseminating information about the 08 riots alone. But other activities such as downloading pictures of the Dalai Lama, posting Tibetan language poetry, blogging about life in Tibet, or just communicating with the outside world reaps Tibetans lengthy jail terms on the usual trumped up charges of “espionage” or “revealing state secrets”.
But thousands more Tibetans are being incarcerated, for exercising their constitutionally and UN Charter guaranteed rights of freedom of speech and expression, on such trumped up charges.
Most Tibetans imprisoned experience degrading treatment, severe beatings and torture on a routine basis and suffer extremely harsh conditions, affecting their physical and mental health as a consequence.
In addition to the heavily censored media content, the Han Chinese are jamming all broadcasts from outside the Han nation, such as Voice of Tibet (VOT), which is funded by Norwegian NGO’s, Voice of America (VOA), etc. violating UN resolutions and even its own Constitution by doing so.
The internet is also tightly controlled and monitored, every internet café gets visited every day and every pc scrutinised for content viewed over the internet, so that even in public access to the net Tibetans are sure to be surveyed at every moment of the day. It would be unthinkable for a Tibetan to attempt downloading such banned material as pictures of the Dalai Lama in his own home, as every connection is closely monitored and would lead to instant arrest.
In the latest twist of repressive measures, Tibetan internet café owners must install filtering and surveillance software on their PCs together with scanning soft and hardware, and every user of the internet at publicly accessible points must swipe his ID card, and so have all his details and activities monitored and recorded immediately.
The Han Chinese have installed a CCTV surveillance system, SkyNet Project, all over Tibet to strictly monitor Tibetans in every public place, street corner, and alleyway, covering every village, town and city on the entire Tibetan plateau.
Han CCP propaganda has managed to turn their destruction and looting of Tibet into an act of benevolence and selfless munificence in the eyes of their Han constituency, and even the wider world at large, and the oppression and brutal subjugation of the Tibetan people into a ‘liberation and empowerment’.
As a result of such incessant propaganda and calculated denigrations, Han people view the Tibetans as ‘white-eyed wolves’, inferring that they are an ‘ungrateful bunch of howling wolves’, and don’t appreciate all the ‘selfless investments and aid’ the Han people have poured into Tibet.
The reality is that any investments made in Tibet are solely for the benefit of Han Settlers, the movement of their Military, the extraction of mineral wealth from gold to copper and many other mining activities, facilitating logging, the building of hydroelectric power stations, and in so claiming the country of Tibet for the Han Nation.
The looting of all the precious artefacts, silver and gold stolen in the fifties and sixties from the Tibetans alone amounts to many multiples of what the Han Chinese so conceitedly tout as having ‘invested’ in Tibet, alas not out of altruistic motives or to any benefit to the Tibetans, but for purely egocentric purposes.
But of course since then the country of Tibet has continually been ransacked for most of its ancient forests, mineral wealth, and today the rapacious looting and extraction continues at an ever accelerated pace.
■ Wei Jingshen, a well known Chinese dissident writes that when his parents learned of his girlfriend’s ethnicity, a Tibetan, they threatened to disown him, unless he immediately terminated this relationship. Although his parents never met any Tibetans, they thought that Tibetans were half human, half animal. This racist stereotype is farily typical amongst Han people, and is a result of a society which through the ages has unremittingly harboured such incongruous bigotry, and which under the CCP has further been thoroughly conditioned with relentless vilification and denigration of the Tibetan people.
This attitude towards the Tibetans is as ancient as it is contemporary, with writers through the ages portraying the Tibetan race in these condescending and denigrating terms; denying them any form of culture, learning, or even products of value to the superior Han.
Successive Ming Emperors sought to expand their influence over other territories by sinicizing bordering ‘barbarian’ races by way of converting them into some second rate honorary Han. This, they thought, could be accomplished by bestowing them with honorific titles, which they liberally issued to mostly low ranking lames. Most Tibetan lamas were invited by the Emperors for such purposes, however, many just simply ignored it, but lower ranking ones would often accept these invitations. But the real reason though they would make the long and arduous journey to the Ming court was that they would receive gifts from the Emperor, which they could sell at a respectable profit back in Tibet.
So for these lamas this was a lucrative enterprise, and a small price to pay for displaying some expedient deference to this foreign ruler.
These envoys in turn would also carry some gifts for the Emperor, which by CCP writers now is reinterpreted as ‘tributes’, however, this was just a reciprocal exchange, of gifts and honorific titles; customary at the time throughout Asia and a show of mutual respect.
However court chroniclers recorded that the Ming Emperor and his court held the view that these ‘barbarians’ in reality had nothing of value to offer to the Emperor, only curios, artefacts and handicraft for his amusement, despite them often being exquisitely crafted artefacts.
A clear indication that this was not a ‘tribute system’ as modern CCP writers would now have it, but a lucrative revenue racket for the Tibetan lamas, is that these envoys of lamaseries were so numerous that the court would issue an edict and restrict each monastery or Lama to one visit every three years.
■ A recent study of Tibetan refugees arriving in India by “BMC International Health and Human Rights” concluded that most of the refugees in the study had experienced torture.
With the most common torture techniques being:
Beatings (73%), electrical torture (43%), being forced to provide blood (19%), and being kept naked (25%).
These refugees also were further traumatised by sleep deprivation (36%), witnessing murder (37%), kidnapping of family and friends (37%), and disappearances of family and friends (13%).
They conclude as follows:
“Our findings demonstrate that torture is commonly reported amongst Tibetan refugees, and that those who have experienced torture often suffer significant psychological effects.”
The examination of the complex relationship between the Tibetan Nation and the Han people throughout history reveals but one consistent underlying theme, that of racism in all its unpleasant forms and guises.
But it is by and large a story untold and unknown, denied, suppressed and falsified by the victors who get to write the history books.
And also today by the political powers that be; pusillanimous politicians and diplomats all around the world, the Western Press, and despite the many good books on Tibet, by many authors too timid or downright fallacious to confront the truth, but all kowtowing to the masters of the most populous nation; afraid to jeopardise their lucrative trade, cosy arrangements or relationships in whatever form they may be, with these autocrats of the Han empire.
Today the CCP employs the same thinly veiled tactics as Sun Yat-sen did after the 1910 revolution, where he duplicitously called the ROC a "Multi-ethnic" nation.
Thus in order to clad their racist regime in a veneer of ‘legitimacy’ the PRC is called a "Nation of 56 Nationalities", with the inference of ‘inclusiveness’ and ‘communality’ amongst the races.
This of course bears no semblance to any reality, where only the Han CCP holds all the power, and where all UN conventions, and even the PRC’s own constitutional guarantees and rights, are flagrantly disregarded in respect to the rights of minorities and indigenous peoples.
This construct of the nation of 56 Nationalities serves the sole purpose of cloaking the occupation and sinicizing of all of these minorities’ lands in some tenuous legitimacy.
In the CCP’s calculation this would validate the intended eradication of the cultural and hereditary claim these people legitimately have over their ancestral lands once and for all, and in turn pervert any claim to self determination under UN Conventions signed up to by the PRC by joining the UN.
The old South Africa offers little comparison to the Racism perpetrated in Tibet.
The racism in SA was of a candidly overt nature, and the regime there made no attempts to gloss over the fact that racism was institutionalised policy.
In Tibet, the Han nation is practising a much more pernicious and intractable Racism.
A covert, veiled and disguised Racism, vehemently denied, and smothered in a plethora of propaganda, that attempts to portray a harmonious, inclusive and egalitarian society, the very opposite to the reality of their policies.
In many ways the Racism perpetrated in Tibet is much more insidious, and for the victims of a far more heinous and callous nature.
The old SA did not arbitrarily arrest blacks, or systematically torture and mistreat their prisoners as a matter of course.
There were also no Slave Labour Camps as in Tibet, called Laogai, where inmates are forced to perform hard labour and are assigned dangerous tasks without adequate protection or standard precautions.
Needless to say the majority suffer longterm ill health and many die as a consequence.
And in the old SA, speaking out on issues of whatever nature, or carrying a picture of Nelson Mandela did not result in a very lengthy jail term, with all the associated horrors of torture and maltreatment, as is the case in Tibet today.
The deliberate and systematic denigration and vilification of the Tibetan people and their history is unique to Han racism.
The complete abrogation of any culture, or even according Tibetans achievements of any merit in their own right, i.e. where all the ‘civilizing and culture’ has come from the Han people over the entire course of their history, is but the grossest form of racism, and without equal.
Han Chinese records and ‘literature’, historical and contemporary, are replete with such condescending and patronising falsehoods and inversions of historical facts, and serves but one purpose, the self-aggrandizing of the Han race at the expense of the Tibetan people, who after all are forever to be kept in their place as ‘barbarians’.
The Han Chinese regime has taken to touring the globe with their sordid exhibition commemorating their duplicitous “Tibetan Serfs Emancipation Day”, ramming their racist vilification of the Tibetan people down everyone’s throat, where no country would dare to refuse to host such blatant racism on their soil for fear of economic retribution, as is always at the forefront of anything the Chinese undertake in international relations.
The mere fact that this regime would go to the extreme of touring the world with such hateful propaganda amounts to the grossest racist depravity, where every other nation would be utterly ashamed and mortified to stoop to such squalid tactics, the Han people evidently have never displayed such sensitivities or even pangs of conscience.
To the contrary, the supreme conceit displayed in their denials of everything they commit betrays a mindset utterly bereft of such common civilities.
But it is the very nature of the PRC, which is exacting the heaviest toll on the Tibetan people, and other minorities; the loss of their Country, their ancestral land inhabited for millennia as a proud, independent nation.
It is in the way the Han nation came into being, by brute force and violent subjugation by the Han race, against the will of the minorities, first by Sun Yat-sen’s RoC and then by Mao’s PRC.
The self appointed rulers over an empire of ‘alien’ races, as the Manchu’s were branded, and by extension all the other subjugated races!
But nevertheless, the Han race sees itself as the ‘rightfully anointed rulers’ over these alien territories, against all Conventions, International Law, and the will of the subjugated people.
The old SA was rightfully ostracised and sanctioned and forced into change and reform; but then it never could match the economic clout of today’s China.
Today the Han nation has the economic and financial muscle to cower even the most ‘principled’ and well meaning politician, ‘respectable’ News Organisation, or Corporation into indecorous acquiescence to their haughty demands.
(Google being a recent and laudable exception; making for a heartening exclusion from such ignominious submission and abandonment of purported principles.)
An independent Tibet has all the ingredients to be a very prosperous and flourishing country in its own right.
An authentic Tibet, not the artificial one duplicitously run by the Han Chinese for the purpose of tourism, would be one powerful driver where the Tibetans could for once genuinely benefit enormously, and attract a much wider audience of tourists in search of a truly unique culture and people on the roof of the world.
Also, the Han Chinese loot Tibet annually of billions of Dollars worth of natural resources, from forests, minerals and gold, to hydroelectric power, without regards for the environment and to no benefit for the Tibetans.
This natural wealth again would afford the rightful owners vast economic benefit and income if they were to be paid fairly for the natural wealth, now being plundered from them.
The Tibetans have all the constituents for a successful modern state, a fact demonstrated during millennia of independence and evidently during the period of 1910 – 1950, where they largely managed to stay out of the turmoil engulfing the world at large, and demonstrated their fierce independence and will to modern Nationhood.
Alas, their efforts to build a modern nation and national pride were brutally quashed by the invasion in 1950, and their country plunged into the darkest of ages by their “liberators”.
Indeed, the “Hell on Earth” of “old Tibet” now depicted by the CCP is more than uncannily reminiscent of what Tibetans suffered at the hands of the Han people over the centuries, but particularly over the last sixty years, and continue to endure today, in the 21st century no less, without the least display of any pangs of conscience, let alone remorse, by the perpetrators.
The racism and contempt the Han reserve for the Tibetan people is evident in the contemptuous violation of all UN conventions the PRC has signed up to, the vicious treatment meted out to detainees on a routine basis, the discrimination, denigration and third class citizen status Tibetans are subjected to, and the complete and contemptible disregard of any human rights, despite countless reports branding the perpetrators for these horrific crimes.
The horrendous suffering will only end when the last Han Chinese has forcibly been evicted from Tibetan soil, like once before in 1910, and the Tibetan people can restore their dignity, live by their cherished culture, and manage once again their own economic, political and social affairs in their uniquely Buddhist and Tibetan approach.
