The Dragon in Lhasa - Tibet's History & China's Invasion

The general population of Lhasa were out and about in large numbers a week ago in the splendid, sunlit boulevards of the Tibetan capital. Which implied that China's security strengths were out, as well, however the occasion group were serene as they thronged Potala Square to watch services denoting China's National Day. In the shadow of the Dalai Lama's vacant winter castle, Chinese warriors saluted the red PRC banner on the 51st commemoration of Communist Party guideline. From a legal standpoint, Tibet has not lost its statehood. It is an independent start under illegal occupation. Neither China’s military invasion nor the continuing occupation by the PLA has transferred the sovereignty of Tibet to China. As pointed out the Chinese government has never claimed to have acquired sovereignty over Tibet by conquest. Indeed, China recognizes that the use or threat of force (outside the exceptional circumstances provided for in the UN Charter), the imposition of an unequal treaty, or the continued illegal occupation of a country can never grant an invader legal title to territory. Its claims are based solely on the alleged subjection of Tibet to a few of China’s strongest foreign rulers in the 13th and 18th centuries. As the book addresses this crucial issue quite deftly, it is hoped that it would prove to be a source of great information for the reader.
