LoYawn, you are crazy, so I don't expect you to get this, but your
silly tactics amount to little more than
1) If the US government does it, it's evil.
2) If the Dalai Lama does it, it's evil.
3) If the Chinese government does it, it's OK.
Your lies have been refuted again and again, but you keep on repeating
them. You are one crazy loon!
