China Calls Dalai Lama "A Monster"

China will stop at nothing to regain control of Tibet. If the governments control over Tibet is undermined that could undermine it's control over other parts of China. This was a great opportunity to try to get China to change through a boycott of the Olympics in Beijing, a boycott of it's product but instead Western leaders just issued lame statements about the situation in Tibet.

The hardline leader of Tibet has branded the Dalai Lama a “monster” as it emerged that Tibetan students in Beijing have been ordered to effectively renounce any allegiance to their god-king.

Zhang Qingli, the Communist Party Secretary in Tibet, said that the struggle to crush the unrest in the deeply Buddhist Himalayan region involved nothing less than the stability of the entire country.

That battle by China to reassert control over its restive Tibetan population has now drawn in students attending schools and universities in Beijing.
The demand that students effectively denounce the Dalai Lama, declared only on Tuesday by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao as an enemy of China, highlights the nervousness among Communist Party authorities at the continued influence the 14th reincarnation of the Ocean of Wisdom still wields among Tibetans.

Mr Zhang, addressing a meeting in Lhasa, issued a blistering tirade against the 72-year-old monk, who has lived in exile in India since he fled Lhasa in a failed uprising against Chinese rule in 1959.

“We are in the midst of a fierce struggle involving blood and fire, a life and death struggle with the Dalai clique."

The hardline party boss, launching a campaign to restore Chinese authority in Lhasa after a deadly riot last Friday in which Tibetan mobs stabbed, hacked and burnt to death several ethnic Han Chinese, is presiding over house-to-house searches for those involved.

He said: “As long as we... remain of one heart, turn the masses into a walled city and work together to attack the enemy, then we can safeguard social stability and achieve a full victory in this intense battle against separatism."
