Tasmanians were not wiped out, they are still around.


Really? Where? Please note im not talking about white Tasmanians.

See this from the descendants of the 'wiping out of an entire race of people'.

Australia cannot be blamed for what happened in Tasmania in the 1800s as Australia as a nation did not exist until 1901. If blame is to be apportioned then it lays, primarily with the administration of Van Dieman's Land and secondarily with the Governor of NSW; ultimate authority and therefore responsibility lay with Great Britain.

Tasmania didn't become a Self-Governing Colony till 1856.

Here endeth the History lesson for the nonce.

Really? Thats your angle? Thats a new low for you.

Low, high or middlin' it's accurate.

No, you s********g w**m, its a pathetic base argument that has been shown to be false, by governments being held responsible for the actions of past governments. Your racism is quite illuminating.

But not their being Indigenous Tasmanians, or do you consider them not to be Tasmanian Aboriginals because they are not dark skinned enough for your tastes?

If that is so, then you have a rather nasty racist attitude.

No Government, nor anyone else, is responsible for something that happened before they came into being, to think otherwise is to shew a basic misunderstanding of ethics, history and law.

Wasn't Tibet a Theocracy before the Chinese invasion?

Yes, and a very backward one at that.

Yes, it was, to the best of my knowledge. Saying it was 'backward', is I guess, something that has to be taken in comparison to its near neighbours at the time, like Nepal, Ladahk [? sp], far western China, and Mongolia. In the years just prior to the Chinese invasion, there had been a program of modernisation begun after many years of isolation; this isolation had been punctuated by the invasion in 1903-4 of the Younghusband expedition.

There was, of course, absolutely no justification for the invasion but China wanted to flex its new found muscles. The Tibetians like the West Papuans were sacrificed on the altar of world indifference.

I guess it just depends on how indifferent we remain.

The problem is that intervention is often worse than the actual conflict.

Yes. I'm not sure that I would advocate intervention in a military sense, but some relentless open dialogue on the issue would be great. Say, along the lines of the talk about Syria going on at international level.

I guess, inevitably, the Chinese government has chosen to accuse Tibetans of murder in the case of protestor's selfimmolation.

It seems the governement of China still has some basic problems distinguishing protest from crime. I guess you get that with totalitarian government.

Quote

"The sentencing in these cases today also amply demonstrates this backdrop of incitement and abetting," foreign ministry spokesman Hong Lei said.

"We hope that through the trial of such cases, the international community can see the role of the Dalai clique behind self-immolations and all of these treacherous and malicious means, and condemn their crimes."

Steve Tsang, a China expert at the University of Nottingham in Britain, questioned whether the convicted men's actions truly amounted to murder or even assisted suicide, and whether their trial had been fair.

"There's no way of knowing if those claims are true or not," he said of the charges.

"The only way it can be found out is through an open trial with members of a jury."

Now we are up to 100 suicides by self immolation by Tibetans, depiste pleas by the Dalai Lama for people not to do this. The latest one was in a cafe next to the stupa at Boddinath.

Hmm. The Chinese have felt the need to atack the Dalai Lama and say it's his fault that people keep protesting against Chinese occupation.

Quote

ZHANG DONGSHENG, DEPUTY DIRECTOR, SICHUAN PEOPLE'S CONGRESS (voiceover translation): You ask why these things keep happening, well it's linked to our long and fierce battle with the Dalai Lama clique.

STEPHEN MCDONELL: These powerful Communist Party officials were impressed by the rousing attack on the Dalai Lama from their colleague.

ZHANG DONGSHENG (voiceover translation): Self-immolation is neither advocated nor permitted by Tibetan Buddhist teaching. Self-immolation is a sin. So I wonder how they learnt to do it. The Dalai clique taught them, for sure.


... right ...

Now we see that Chinese influence has led to Sydney Uni losing all academic courage regaring the Dalai Lama speaking there on campus.

Quote

The university's China Studies Centre boasts of its close relationship with Chinese government and business.

The centre admits it was involved in the discussions about the Dalai Lama event, but says it did not try to block it.

"I think we have to look at what the university stands to lose if the Chinese government or China Studies Centre is displeased," Ms Bouris said.
