Wire pullers behind fiery deaths (2)

(China Tibet Online)

08:54, December 13, 2012

The 14th Dalai Lama, who allegedly retired from his political roles early last year, has periodically done away with his facade of "non-violence" and tacitly approved of self-immolations.

The so-called "spiritual leader" of Tibetan Buddhists has refused to condemn self-immolations and turned a cold shoulder to the lives lost.

On one occasion earlier this year, he gave an abrupt, "No answer," to a journalist's question on whether Tibetan monks should stop their self-immolations.

Rather than denouncing and calling for an end to the suicidal acts that deviate from the tenets of Buddhism, the 14th Dalai Lama has praised the "courage" of those who self-immolate.

The 14th Dalai Lama's attitude is anything but surprising. Under the Dalai Lama's rule in old Tibet, the lives of ordinary Tibetans were considered to be of little or no value.

The monk has allegedly been fighting for the rights and interests of Tibetans since he fled China in 1959. Such claims, however, are merely meant to appease devout Tibetan Buddhists who still have faith in him and to persuade his Western patrons to continue to support his "Tibet independence" movement, which aims to eventually separate Tibet from China.

With this in mind, it is not hard to figure out who has been behind the scenes pulling the strings that have resulted in these fiery deaths. After all, self-immolations and losses of lives have served the 14th Dalai Lama and his followers well by attracting wider international attention, which they hope will help them achieve their goals of an"independent Tibet."
