The Red Dragon – Occupier of Tibet
SPECIAL FRONTIER FORCE CONFIRMS NIXON’S VIETNAM TREASON:
In an article published by Common Dreams, Professor Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman claim that the right-wing columnist George Will has confirmed President Nixon’s(37th president of the US – 1969-1974) Vietnam Treason after studying the extended versions of Nixon’s papers. I establish President Nixon’s Vietnam Treason without studying any version of Nixon’s papers. The United States may like to conduct its foreign policy with utmost secrecy but in reality such secrecy is not possible for the US has established its connections with other countries who need to know the US Policy and who need to play a significant role in the fulfillment of that Policy. I am personally aware of President Nixon’s Vietnam Treason for I belong to a military organization called Special Frontier Force which came into existence in 1962 during the presidency of John F. Kennedy(35th president of the US – 1961-1963) who gave shape to the military alliance between the US, India, and Tibet that was originally formulated during the presidency of Dwight David Eisenhower(34th president of the US – 1953-1961). I am indeed aware of the US foreign policy in Southeast Asia from my early childhood due to my family connections and later when I was granted Short Service Regular Commission in the Indian Army Medical Corps and was posted to serve in Special Frontier Force which reports to the Prime Minister of India through the Directorate General of Security which includes the Research and Analysis Wing(RAW), the Indian equivalent of the US Central Intelligence Agency or CIA.
KASTURI – SARVEPALLI – MYLAPORE – MADRAS – INDIA – TIBET- US – CONNECTION:
On behalf of “The Living Tibetan Spirits” also known as “Spirits of Special Frontier Force”, I posted a comment on the article titled ‘GEORGE WILL CONFIRMS NIXON’S VIETNAM TREASON’ published on August 12, 2014 by Common Dreams. My maternal grandfather’s younger brother, Kasturi. Seshagiri Rao married Ms. Rukmini, daughter of Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan of Mylapore, Madras(Chennai). Dr. Sarvepalli. Radhakrishnan’s youngest daughter still lives in Mylapore in the house owned by her father. During the Cold War Era, the diplomacy was very secret and India had a tough time for it had openly professed the policy of Non-Alignment. However, China’s military invasion of Tibet posed a huge threat to India. From 1950 to 1959, His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama had some freedom of movement and he had visited India during Buddha Jayanti Celebrations of 1956 apart from his earlier visit with China’s Prime Minister after the initiation of Panch Sheel Agreement of 1954. Both India, and Tibet had recognized that China was not willing to loosen its military grip on Tibet. India’s first Vice President, Dr. Sarvepalli. Radhakrishnan(1952-1962, two terms) conducted secret diplomacy to resolve this problem. He had visited the US during October 1954 and met with Vice President Richard M Nixon who had served as Vice President for two terms during Eisenhower’s presidency. They had established support for the Tibetan Resistance Movement and the training of Tibetan Freedom fighters at Camp Hale, Colorado, USA apart from support at other locations in Nepal, and India. Later, Dr. Radhakrishnan visited Peking in 1957 and found that China was totally unwilling to give any role to the Dalai Lama Government(the Ganden Phodrang)of Tibet founded by the Great Fifth Dalai Lama in 1642. Then, the US, India, and Tibet intensified the Struggle for Freedom and it culminated in ‘The Tibetan Uprising of March 1959’. This revolt against Communist China’s occupation of Tibet failed as the CIA underestimated China’s military capability inside Tibet. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama had arrived in India with some assistance from the CIA. The US Congress provided financial assistance to help the Tibetan Exile community in India and the Tibetan Government-in-Exile was established at Dharamshala, India. In 1962, China had retaliated against India for the US has continued its support for the Tibetan Resistance Movement. India got immediate assistance from President John F. Kennedy and China was forced to declare unilateral ceasefire on November 21, 1962. During Dr. Radhakrishnan’s presidency(1962-1967), Special Frontier Force was founded and its military mission aims to evict China from Tibet. Dr. Radhakrishnan had visited the US during June 1963 to thank President Kennedy for his support during the 1962 War. During President Johnson’s time, the US was fighting a bitter and bloody battle in Vietnam. India was giving some logistical assistance to the US. The CIA wanted to open a second battle front against China and wanted Special Frontier Force to attack China inside Tibet. I was serving in Special Frontier Force(1971-1974) and we were ready to fight that War even if it meant a certain death. We were fully willing to die to fight America’s battle against Communism as it gave us the only opportunity to confront the military might of Communist China. North Vietnam was fighting a proxy war on behalf of China and the Soviet Union. When Nixon became the 37th US President, the Vietnam War continued with US forces making numerous sacrifices in life and limb. Nixon utterly failed to direct the war effort against China. Nixon ordered invasion of Cambodia during 1970, ordered invasion of Laos during 1971 and even ordered saturation bombing of North Vietnam while he totally ignored Communist China’s role in Vietnam War and failed to treat the Enemy as the Enemy. Special Frontier Force is appalled by President Nixon’s visit to Peking during February 1972 while the US was bleeding in Vietnam. Nixon’s efforts to befriend Communist China made no difference and it was of no help or of any consolation to the US troops who continued to get killed or injured in Vietnam. At Special Frontier Force, we are of the opinion that President Nixon could have won in Vietnam if he had sanctioned the new battle front against China inside Tibet. Special Frontier Force is willing to fight this battle against China without asking the US to participate in the ground battle. I must concede that India was not fully willing to openly support the US in its Vietnam War and India was unwilling to send its troops to fight in Vietnam. It does not mean that India is not willing to fight the threat posed by Communism in Southeast Asia. From 1950s, India befriended the US to meet the security challenge posed by China’s military invasion of Tibet. If not in Vietnam, Special Frontier Force wanted to accomplish the US foreign policy objectives in Southeast Asia by taking action against China’s military occupation of Tibet. To win its Vietnam War, the US had no option other than that of fighting China and stop its support to North Vietnam. It could be a difficult task and may demand much human sacrifice. I am not blaming Nixon for not using the US Armed Forces to extend its military operations against China. There is a better way to fight China. We should not let the Enemy decide the Battle that he wants to Fight. With no cost to the US lives, Special Frontier Force could have chosen a battlefield and would have compelled China to reduce its support to North Vietnam. Nixon conceded the battle to the Enemy during War. For this reason, on behalf of Special Frontier Force, I confirm Nixon’s Treason in Vietnam. His presidency must account for the most humiliating defeat that is ever experienced by the US Armed Forces in their entire history.

George Will Confirms Nixon’s Vietnam Treason
President Nixon, with edited transcripts of Nixon White House Tape conversations during broadcast of his address to the Nation, on April 29, 1974.
Richard Nixon was a traitor.
The new release of extended versions of Nixon’s papers now confirms this long-standing
belief, usually dismissed as a “conspiracy theory” by Republican conservatives. Now it has
been substantiated by none other than right-wing columnist George Will.
Nixon’s newly revealed records show for certain that in 1968, as a presidential candidate,
he ordered Anna Chennault, his liaison to the South Vietnam government, to persuade
them refuse a cease-fire being brokered by President Lyndon Johnson.
Nixon’s interference with these negotiations violated President John Adams’s 1797 Logan Act, banning private citizens from intruding into official government negotiations with a foreign
Published as the 40th Anniversary of Nixon’s resignation approaches, Will’s column confirms
that Nixon feared public disclosure of his role in sabotaging the 1968 Vietnam peace talks. Will says Nixon established a “plumbers unit” to stop potential leaks of information that might damage him, including documentation he believed was held by the Brookings Institute, a liberal think tank. The Plumbers’ later break-in at the Democratic National Committee led to the Watergate scandal that brought Nixon down.
Nixon’s sabotage of the Vietnam peace talks was confirmed by transcripts of FBI wiretaps.
On November 2, 1968, LBJ received a FBI report saying Chernnault told the South Vietnamese ambassador that “she had received a message from her boss: saying the Vietnamese should “hold on, we are gonna win.”
As Will confirms, Vietnamese did “hold on,” the war proceeded and Nixon did win, changing forever the face of American politics—with the shadow of treason permanently embedded in its DNA.
The treason came in 1968 as the Vietnam War reached a critical turning point. President Lyndon Johnson was desperate for a truce between North and South Vietnam.
LBJ had an ulterior motive: his Vice President, Hubert Humphrey, was in a tight presidential
race against Richard Nixon. With demonstrators in the streets, Humphrey desperately needed a cease-fire to get him into the White House.
Johnson had it all but wrapped it. With a combination of gentle and iron-fisted persuasion, he forced the leaders of South Vietnam into an all-but-final agreement with the North. A cease-fire was imminent, and Humphrey’s election seemed assured.
But at the last-minute, the South Vietnamese pulled out. LBJ suspected Nixon had intervened to stop them from signing a peace treaty.
In the Price of Power (1983), Seymour Hersh revealed Henry Kissinger—then Johnson’s
advisor on Vietnam peace talks—secretly alerted Nixon’s staff that a truce was imminent.
According to Hersh, Nixon “was able to get a series of messages to the Thieu government
[of South Vietnam] making it clear that a Nixon presidency would have different views on
Johnson was livid. He even called the Republican Senate Minority Leader, Everett Dirksen, to complain that “they oughtn’t be doing this. This is treason.”
“I know,” was Dirksen’s feeble reply.
Johnson blasted Nixon about this on November 3, just prior to the election. As Robert Parry of
consortiumnews.com has written: “when Johnson confronted Nixon with evidence of the peace-talk sabotage, Nixon insisted on his innocence but acknowledged that he knew what was at stake.”
Said Nixon: “My, I would never do anything to encourage….Saigon not to come to the table….Good God, we’ve got to get them to Paris or you can’t have peace.”
But South Vietnamese President General Theiu—a notorious drug and gun runner—did boycott
Johnson’s Paris peace talks. With the war still raging, Nixon claimed a narrow victory over Humphrey. He then made Kissinger his own national security advisor.
In the four years between the sabotage and what Kissinger termed “peace at hand” just
prior to the 1972 election, more than 20,000 US troops died in Vietnam. More than 100,000 were wounded. More than a million Vietnamese were killed.
But in 1973, Kissinger was given the Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating the same settlement he helped sabotage in 1968.
According to Parry, LBJ wanted to go public with Nixon’s treason. But Clark Clifford, an
architect of the CIA and a pillar of the Washington establishment, talked Johnson out of it.
LBJ’s close confidant warned that the revelation would shake the foundations of the nation.
In particular, Clifford told Johnson (in a taped conversation) that “some elements of the
story are so shocking in their nature that I’m wondering whether it would be good for the
country to disclose the story and then possibly have [Nixon] elected. It could cast his whole administration under such doubt that I think it would be inimical to our country’s best
In other words, Clifford told LBJ that the country couldn’t handle the reality that its
president was a certifiable traitor, eligible for legal execution.
Fittingly, Clark Clifford’s upper-crust career ended in the disgrace of his entanglement
with the crooked Bank of Credit and Commerce (BCCI), which financed the terrorist group
Al Qaeda and whose scandalous downfall tainted the Agency he helped found.
Johnson lived four years after he left office, tormented by the disastrous war that
destroyed his presidency and his retirement. Nixon won re-election in 1972, again
with a host of dirty dealings, then became the first American president to resign in

SPECIAL FRONTIER FORCE VS THE EVIL RED EMPIRE – RED CHINA :
I have a great pleasure in sharing the blog post titled “CHINA’S OPENING TO RUSSIA” by Dina Badie published by Huffington Post on April 27, 2015. It clearly exposes Dr. Henry Alfred Kissinger, PhD as #WholeVillain WholeVillain, Whole Villain for he formulated the US-China relations without any concern for values that define United States of America. Red China’s opening to Russia will compel the United States to define its national values while it defends its security interests in present day world.
WHAT IS EVIL ?
The term “EVIL” describes conduct regarded as morally bad, morally wrong, wicked, depraved, causing pain, or trouble, harmful, injurious, offensive, disgusting, threatening, and bringing misfortune and misery to those affected by it. Red China is Evildoer for it does evil actions habitually. Red China is Evil-Minded for its disposition is malicious. Red China is the Evil One, a term used for The Devil or Satan.

CHINA’S OPENING TO RUSSIA
Posted: 04/27/2015 3:12 pm EDT Updated: 04/27/2015 3:59 pm EDT
When Henry Kissinger returned from a secret meeting in China in 1971, he laid the groundwork for a historic diplomatic opening after more than 20 years of rejecting the Communist Party government. Within a year, Richard Nixon visited Mao Zedong in Beijing, the Shanghai Communiqué was signed, and the process of normalizing Sino-America relations began. Since then, most scholars and analysts have considered Nixon’s opening to China to be a resounding foreign policy success. In the midst of the Cold War, it successfully exploited existing divisions within the communist bloc and improved the U.S. strategic position vis-à-vis the USSR. Rather than three powerful states existing in isolation of one another, it was now 2 against 1: the U.S. and China vs. the USSR.
At the time, however, Nixon’s policy did not come without criticism. Mao Zedong’s brand of communism along with his brutal implementation of a “cultural revolution,” made him an improbable target for U.S. policymakers looking for diplomatic partners. Given the importance of the “democracy and capitalism” narrative of the Cold War, trading the recognition of the old Kuomintang government in Taiwan for the Communist Party state in the mainland was a contentious move. Yet, Nixon and Kissinger looked beyond ideology to open dialogue for strategic purposes.
Today, the U.S. is on the other end of an opening.
American and European statesmen are currently boycotting, sanctioning, condemning, and isolating Russia as punishment for its Ukraine policy. In the way that the U.S. picked off China after recognizing the Sino-Soviet split, China is now picking off Russia given the American-Russian split. The Ukraine crisis indirectly created an opportunity for China to expand a “strategic partnership” with Russia as the only major power not taking part in the sanctions regime. This is not to say that Russia and China had no diplomatic relations prior to the Ukraine crisis; rather, that Western policy toward Russia is creating an opening that China can easily exploit. As far as Russia policy goes, the further the West goes, the closer China comes.
While it is easy to criticize China’s noninterference policy and neutrality on Ukraine, it is not significantly different from Nixon and Kissinger’s decision to look beyond ideology in the 1970s. Pursuing a tangible national interest over ideological considerations, China has been able to deepen economic ties with Russia to ease the impact of Western sanctions. To address its growing energy needs, China is working on a second pipeline project with Russia to import much-needed natural resources. And next month, Xi Jinping will be the guest of honor at Russia’s WWII commemorative parade, which American and European leaders plan to boycott.
China’s strategic opening should come as no surprise to the U.S. There remain significant differences between Russia and China but the more Washington pushes and pivots, the closer Moscow and Beijing will become. Rather than continually isolating Russia over its actions in Ukraine and denouncing China for remaining neutral, the U.S. would be best served to once again cast off ideologically motivated policy in favor of real politik.
DOOMSAYER OF DOOM DOOMA – BEIJING IS DOOMED:
#DoomsayerofDoomDooma – #BeijingIsDoomed:
I respectfully dedicate this post to the memory of Ronald Wilson Reagan, 40th President of the United States.
Trusting in God, I made my ‘Journey to the United States in 1986 during the presidency of Ronald Reagan.
I identify myself as Doomsayer of Doom Dooma(#DoomsayerofDoomDooma) and my prediction is, Beijing is Doomed(#BeijingIsDoomed). I would share my connection to Doom Dooma, Assam, India, Beijing(Peking), China, and the United States and describe the reason for predicting a catastrophic event that will destroy Beijing’s power and wealth in an apocalyptic event.
Doom Dooma, Tinsukia District, Assam is in Northeast India, popularly known as Tea City.
I was living in a military camp at Doom Dooma airfield built by US Engineers who came to India during World War II to checkmate Imperial Japan’s invasion of India. My affiliation with the United States was discovered by a Chinese spy who lived in our Special Frontier Force military camp. He reported my presence to Beijing and my photo image shared for their records. At Doom Dooma during 1972, Beijing registered my existence and my affiliation with a military organization called Special Frontier Force or Establishment No. 22.
My affiliation with Special Frontier Force is based on values which defined the national character of the United States.
President Reagan stated his belief in God using terms that I can easily understand. If the United States has a national motto that states, “IN GOD WE TRUST”, I share that feeling of trust in making decisions about my life’s journey.
President Reagan clearly articulated the core values which are pillars on which the national entity called the United States proudly stands.
President Reagan suggested that the answers for all the problems men face are found within the covers of The Bible. The problems of man do not always need human interventions like insurrection, rebellion, warfare, and other forms of physical force that man uses to resolve conflicts.
President Reagan shared a hope that human struggle for Freedom, Fairness, and Justice could be resolved without using bombs, rockets, armies, or military might. In the last book of The New Testament called ‘REVELATION’ I discovered a hidden prophesy that graphically described the downfall of The Evil Red Empire.
In human history, evil empires have risen and evil empires have fallen.
The Book of Revelation describes in great detail the downfall of an Evil Empire which it code-named as “BABYLON.” In present day world, there is no evil empire called Babylon for it got wiped out long before The Book of Revelation was written by Saint John. Revelation, Chapter 18 describes the scenario of a catastrophic event which is very similar to K-T Event, a major extinction event that wiped out existence of Dinosaurs that ruled planet Earth over millions of years.
The Book of Revelation reveals Beijing is Doomed(#BeijingIsDoomed) and the Scripture, Chapter 18, Verse# 21 reads:
Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said:
“With such violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down,
Never to be found again.”
This is a Prophesy that will come true in the history of Red China which I describe as #TheEvilRedEmpire The Evil Red Empire.
SPECIAL FRONTIER FORCE VS THE EVIL RED EMPIRE:
On Wednesday, April 15, 2015, People’s Republic of China released a white paper to describe Tibet’s Progress and Development. The Tibet it describes is known as TAR or Tibetan Autonomous Region that Red China created in 1965. As such this white paper does not describe the national entity called Tibet. The white paper traces the history of origin of Tibetan Resistance Movement that eventually resulted in creation of a military organization called Special Frontier Force. This Organization aims to evict the occupier of Tibet. China’s white paper describes China’s position on the demand for full autonomy. China claims that it is rejecting the demand for full autonomy as it may lead to Tibet’s full independence. In human history, empires have risen, and empires have fallen. The Evil Empire of Red China will not be an exception and I predict that Beijing is Doomed and its fate or destiny was written long ago and sealed in a scripture called ‘REVELATION’ which describes The Day of Reckoning.
In my view, the occupier of Tibet faces inevitable destruction by an apocalyptic event without the need to fight him in a direct battle. The prophetic vision of this enemy’s defeat is in The Old Testament Book of Isaiah, The Book of Psalms-Psalm 137, and The New Testament Book of Revelation.
They predict a sudden destruction of Evil not through warfare but by a cosmic event which involves the Evil Empire getting hit by an asteroid thrown down to cause its utter ruin.
THE EVIL RED EMPIRE:
I am using this name to specifically describe a political entity called People’s Republic of China proclaimed by Mao tse-Tung or Mao Zedong on October 01, 1949.
In the past, US President Ronald Reagan may have used the phrase ‘Evil Empire’ to describe Soviet Union.
To the Jews of Biblical times, Babylonia became a byword for evil, for she was the nation that had destroyed Jerusalem and its Temple to God. The New Testament Book of Revelation refers to Babylonia and many experts recognize the symbolism of “Babylon The Great.” It is more likely Revelation used the word Babylon as a coded name and it simply intended to predict the downfall of Roman Empire.
Now, world is not facing any danger from former Evil Empires like Babylonia, Rome, or Soviet Union. Those empires wiped out and do not exist any more. For all practical purposes, after the fall of Nazi Germany, the breakup of Soviet Union, the only Evil Empire that exists is that of Red China. Historically, China’s rulers include The Shang dynasty, Chou dynasty, Chin dynasty, Han dynasty, T’ang dynasty, Sung dynasty, Yuan dynasty, Ming dynasty, and Ch’ing or Manchu dynasty, the last one ruled from 1644 to 1912. Red China formulated by Communist Party Chairman Mao tse-Tung is ideologically driven and he and his party is responsible for pain and suffering imposed on millions of people.
THE RED DRAGON:
Dragon is a mythical or legendary animal which combines several features of snake and lizard. It symbolizes force and power that evokes a sense of great fear. In China, and Japan, the dragon may have some benevolent attributes.
In China, from ancient times, dragon was the emblem of the Imperial family, and until the founding of the Republic(1911), the dragon adorned the Chinese flag. In Christian tradition, the dragon symbolizes an evil power and it is thought to be a physical manifestation of Satan or The Devil. Satan symbolizes Sin, Disobedience of God, rebelliousness, recklessness, wickedness and supernatural power which brings people to utter ruination or eternal damnation in Hell.
The Hebrew words “TANNIM” and “TANNIN” appear thirteen and fourteen times respectively in The Old Testament Books. They are translated as Dragon, Jackal, sea-monster, Serpent, Whale, Wolf, and The Beast. These are large creatures with a frightening aspect.
In The New Testament Book of Revelation, Satan is referred to as a dragon in Chapter 12, verse 3: “Then another sign appeared in Heaven; an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads.” The relationship between the Evil Empire called Babylon and The Devil is described in Revelation, Chapter 17, verse 3: “Then the angel carried me away in the spirit into a desert. There I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was covered with blasphemous names and had seven heads and ten horns.” Revelation, Chapter 17, verse 18 describes the symbolism of The Woman on The Beast: “The woman you saw is the great city that rules over the kings of the earth.” In present times, the only great city associated with The Evil Empire is Peking or Beijing. It matches with description of Babylon as the seat of Power and Wealth.
THE FALL OF EVIL EMPIRE: A PRAYER IN THE BOOK OF PSALMS:
Psalm 137 was composed by captive Jews in Babylon. Verse 8 reflects their hope and expectation:
“O Daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction,
happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us….”
People in occupied Tibet are held captive in their own Land and they are all waiting for their release, for liberation, and for salvation that will end the pain, and misery of decades of brutal oppression and tyrannical rule by Beijing. Babylon is a coded substitute for Beijing and the Fall of Babylon is The Fall of Beijing.
THE FALL BY A SUDDEN CATASTROPHE:
God predicts that the Great Queen Babylon(Beijing) will become a harlot, and will be surprised by a sudden catastrophe. Prophet Isaiah reveals the scenario of this sudden catastrophe in Chapter 47, verses 10, 11, 12, and 15:
“You have trusted in your wickedness and have said, ‘No one sees me.’
Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you
When you say to yourself,
‘I am and there is none besides me.’
“Disaster will come upon you that you cannot ward off with a ransom;
a catastrophe you cannot foresee will suddenly come upon you.”
“Keep on, then, with your magic spells and with your many sorceries,
which you have labored at since childhood.
Perhaps you will succeed, perhaps you will cause terror.”
“That is all they can do for you –
these you have labored with and trafficked with since childhood.
Each of them goes on in his error;
There is not one that can save you.”
THE FALL OF BABYLON(BEIJING)- PROPHESY IN ‘REVELATION’:
The Book of Revelation, Chapter 18 gives a detailed account of the Fall of Evil Empire and describes the mechanism for its destruction. The kings of the earth who committed adultery with her, the merchants of the earth who traded with her, every sea-captain, the sailors, and all who earn their earn their living from the sea will stand far off, terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn and cry out:
“Woe! Woe , O great city, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet,
and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls!
In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!”
In one hour, the great wealth and power of Beijing will be brought to ruin as foretold in verse# 21:
“Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and threw it into the sea, and said:
“With such violence the great city of Babylon will be thrown down, never to be found again.”

China calls on Dalai Lama to ‘put aside illusions’ about talks
The Dalai Lama gestures during a public talk and teachings event at St. Jakobshalle, in Basel February …
BEIJING (Reuters) – China on Wednesday urged the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, to “put aside his illusions” about talks on Tibet’s future and accused him of insincerity and covertly pushing for independence, rather than autonomy.
China has ruled Tibet with an iron fist since troops “peacefully liberated” the region in 1950. The Dalai Lama fled into exile in India in 1959 after an abortive uprising against Chinese rule.
Representatives of the Nobel Peace laureate held rounds of talks with China until 2010, but formal dialogue has stalled amid leadership changes in Beijing and a crackdown in Tibet.
In a lengthy white paper released by the official Xinhua news agency, the government said that having failed to use violence to achieve their goals, the Dalai Lama and his supporters had little understanding of modern Tibet and “a sentimental attachment to the old theocratic feudal serfdom”.
“The only sensible alternative is for the Dalai Lama and his supporters to accept that Tibet has been part of China since antiquity, to abandon their goals of dividing China and seeking independence for Tibet,” it said.
“The central government hopes that the Dalai Lama will put aside his illusions in his remaining years and face up to reality,” the government said in the white paper, released in both English and Chinese.
Beijing has been disappointed that the Dalai Lama remains committed to the Middle Way – which he says merely seeks genuine autonomy for the Himalayan region – and this is something China cannot accept as its real goal is still independence, it added.
“None of the negotiations were conducted in good faith – it was always the intention of the Dalai Lama and his supporters to divide China and achieve independence for Tibet,” it added.
The Tibetan government in exile, based in India, said in an emailed statement that condemning the Middle Way showed Beijing’s failure to come up with an alternative.
“The Middle Way Policy seeks genuine autonomy within the framework of the constitution of the People’s Republic of China which is a win-win proposition for all parties and one lauded throughout the world including various governments,” it said.
The Dalai Lama denies espousing violence and says he only wants genuine autonomy for Tibet, though China has repeatedly said he is insincere.
China has recently stepped up its rhetoric against the Dalai Lama. He is being received by fewer and fewer foreign leaders in recent years, because of the anger it draws from China, the world’s second-largest economy.
