O Tibete e os estereotipos

Aí está um texto que subscrevo. Kent Ewing recentra o debate.

"Once again, Chinese and Western leaders have shown us that when things get really tough in China - and the separatist-inspired riots targeting not just the central government but also innocent Han Chinese now living in Tibet and nearby provinces qualify as just that - both parties revert depressingly to form. The Chinese government has attacked the Western media, the Dalai Lama and all those taking part in the protests in language reminiscent of the Cultural Revolution while Western powers, led by Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, have used the violence in Tibet as yet another excuse to demonize China's leaders".

"Tibet, China and the West: Back to stereotypes", Kent Ewing no Asia times.
