Under pressure from the Chinese, who now own America and were honored in America with their flag being raised at the White House and the Empire State Building bathed in red and yellow lights, President Obama will not be meeting with the Dalai Lama who is the spiritual leader of Buddhism and Tibet. Since 1991, the Dalai Lama has met with every sitting president. President George W. Bush honored the Dalai Lama with the Congressional Gold Medal. The Dalai Lama has also received the Nobel Peace Prize. But Obama would rather please the Chinese than give this man the respect he deserves.
The Indian Express puts it this way:
In an attempt to gain favour with China, for the first time since 1991 the US President will not meet Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama when he visits Washington this week. President Barack Obama who is scheduled to undertake his first visit to China next month has apparently decided not to meet the Dalai Lama son as not to annoy Beijing.
“The US pressured Tibetan representatives to postpone a meeting between the Dalai Lama and President Obama until after Obama’s summit with his Chinese counterpart, Hu Jintao, scheduled for next month,” Washington Post reported.
The US decision to postpone the meeting appears to be part of a strategy to improve ties with China that also includes soft-pedaling criticism of China’s human rights and financial policies as well as backing efforts to elevate China’s position in international institutions, such as the International Monetary Fund, the report said.
So I wonder how the peace loving liberals who practice Buddhism feel about this? Is Obama still your man since he promises to bring the whole world together? One day, these people on the left will realize what an empty suit of broken promises Obama really is and jump off of his bandwagon. Obama supports China rather than human rights. And really, he has left himself little choice. The government, including past presidents have left him little choice. We are beholden to China, who is our enemy as long as they continue to be Red China, because they own America. But then again, Obama would love to follow the path of China’s leadership.
