This is a reference to a Monty Python song. But apparently the Chinese government likes the German government less these days, because Angela Merkel met the Dalai Lama.

Angela Merkel, democratically elected chancellor of Germany, meets the spiritual leader of a major branch of Buddhism (who’s also a Nobel Peace Prize winner) and this upsets the Chinese government…

I’m still undecided whether it is a good idea to hold the Olympic games in Beijing in 2008. Hopefully, it will help to lift the sanctions on the media and help to improve the human rights situation in China. Still, I find it highly irritating that China should be awarded the honor to host the world’s best athletes.

Please consider supporting the Team Tibet.
