Occupation of Tibet

Regarding the Opinion page article "Tibet's Shattered Hopes," March 25: Americans and others are likely unaware of the consistent point of view expressed on the question of Tibetan independence in the Chinese media, including the English-language newspaper China Daily.

Two items are especially worthy of mention. First, Beijing's approach to history is that Tibet has really been part of China for a very long time. Second, if in the mid-20th century China did take a more active interest in Tibet than previously, this was to free Tibetans from a cruel, repressive theocracy.

I have from time to time read historical accounts of morbid, inhuman deeds done in the name of this theocracy, written from an official Chinese perspective. David Lawson, Xian, China
