OBAMA DIDN'T PLAY DUMB...HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING.....SO HE MUST BE DUMB...

what about DELIBERATE? I SUSPECT DELIBERATE IS THE RIGHT adjective! Obama acted deliberately! I learnt as a kid that if threatened, act in a deliberate way and then take it from there. Give them something to worry about if you will. Obama has forgotten the meeting, teeth are chattering in China.....now, who is dumb?

Ball is in China's court. If they have one to play with that is
No, I live above Sunset Plaza, it's a little house I rent and it's a little rundown but has a beautiful view, what about you?

Seems like China doesn't have a grasp as to the importance of the DL in american society.

If china didn't make such a fuss, no one would even connect the DL with china.

For americans, the DL is just a spiritual leader.  Its not about politics.

Its about this fantasy that we hold of eastern philosophies as being 'wisdom'.  If there was a figurehead for Confucianism, he could have an equal place with the DL in terms of respect.

Has nothing to do with the politics on why the DL is popular here.  Nothing at all to do with china or tibet.

Its just mind-boggling that china gets so upset about these meetings.

That makes china look bad, not the DL.

If china  ...

  So do you think Tibet is part of China or not? Do you think DL is Chinese or not? Please answer the two questions.

  The Chinese are contemptuous of DL because he is a dissident trying to sow the seeds of hatred between Han Chinese and local inhabitants living in Tibet, which is part of China. And only you would think he is a spiritual leader. Don't know know that  serfdom used to be preached and eulogized by such "spiritual leaders" like DL in Tibet?

  Martin Luther King , the crusader of racial equality,  would have told DL to take a hike for this reason.   It's sheer madness for a black president like Obama to meet a man who grew up in a family known for having flocks of serfs.

  Don't tell me that you are a big fan of slavery or serdom like your spiritual leader DL.

If Obama can meet with the head of the Catholic Church......


Why is it a problem for Obama to meet with the head of Tibetan Buddhism?


You may not like or believe in Tibetan Buddhism.........but what is wrong to meet the monk?



You so racist one meh?

  Nah. Monks are supposed to shy away from politics.  You know church and state? Once monks like him opt to use his influence to persuade his devotees into contumacious dissidents, then  such monks are no longer monks but political operatives.

  If monks are allowed to get involved in politics, then there is no reason for people to take umbruage at Islam radicalism, given that disciples of Islam radicalism could argue that they do all the things in order to defend for  own religion.

  We all know Islam radicialism is terrible, right?
