The Death of Tibet

As a python crushes its prey and then consumes it, it China's absorption of Tibet continues, a day at a time.

The Guardian has an article about a new railway the Chinese are building that will connect Golmud to Lhasa, Tibet. Golmud is north and somewhat east of Lhasa.

Its good that China is modernizing, doing impressive engineering projects like this, and taking its proper place as one of the world's great nations. Its good that many of its people have a better life.

But this comes at a price. Part of this price is the slow death of the Tibetan nation. The Dalai Lama remains in exile, while the python crushes the life out of his people.
