On Thursday, the spokeswoman of the Foreign Ministry of the People’s Republic of China, Mao Ning, demonstrated Beijing’s support for the addition of Palestine to the UN. ⠀

The spokeswoman also called for the United Nations not to delay the decision any longer and to take action to stop the genocide and end the bloodshed as soon as possible. ⠀

On the other hand, the United States said it will not accept Palestine’s request until a comprehensive agreement is reached with its ally, Israel.

      You do realize that 95 percent of Tibetans were serfs and slaves who served feudal lords before the arrival of the Chinese communists, right? I’m sure they’re just dying to return to independence.

        And you do realise that a people do not automatically revert to the state they were in the last time they were independent, right?

        If Scotland were to gain independence I highly doubt they’d revert to their 17th Century feudal state.

          Liberals are always calling for balkanization. You’re completely missing the point. Tibet has been a part of China for centuries. Tibet was liberated by the PRC and reunified with China. All of this free Tibet energy is an invention of the west. There’s hardly anybody in Tibet asking to be freed.

        Question: is a country sovereign and independent if no other country recognizes it’s independence and it lacks the powers of de facto independence?

        If so, then I guess I really could declare that my house is independence and have a bunch of freedom fighters show up to my door…
