Barack Obama cancels meeting with Dalai Lama 'to keep China happy'
here's the full article
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldne … happy.html
It's a slap in the face for human rights. Shows how reliant the US economy is on Chinese relations and yet the 'greatest' nation in the world is denying it's own integrity. Feels a bit like selling ones soul for........... dare I say it!
This left a bad taste in my mouth, what are your thoughts?
The Chinese believe he is a fake and they are a very evolved race so it is possible.
The Chinese believe who is fake - Obama or the Dalai Lama? It's a bit irrelevant what the Chinese think, it's more what Obama is doing in the name of humanity I'm disappointed about. It also shows that the US government succumbs to the bullying tactics of the Chinese in the name of trade.
The same feeling here, I do not like this at all
Did you really expect Obama to be an example of spirituality?
Come on, he has a country to run, and this country is owned by China. They don't really need to bully. They own it.
Yeah, well I sort of hoped Obama would be an example of human ethics Misha. Guess money wins out.
I can't remember the details but our PM Rudd basically told China to pull back with their bullying tactics re trade with Australia, thought that showed guts. China know they are in a good position, but doesn't mean they can ride roughs-hot over everyone. And Obama needs to stop being so darn desperate. China still needs a commercial market to offload their lowgrade merchandise.
Oh, yeah I forgot, they own America as well. Hmmmm? So Obama has nothing to lose, it's gone anyway. So all he has is the humanitarian stance left. Oh dear, this thread is going belly up fast.
He is doing a superb job spirituality, he is making an attempt to bridge the difference between Christians and Muslims, hats of to Obama.He is probably doing more spiritually than the Dalai Lama.
But what about the Buddhists? It's one thing to bridge differences for oil, it's another to do it for humanity.
I have allot of respect for Obama, but this smells bad.
It's money on this topic not the Christians and Muslims.
After his 'strong' reaction to the slaughter in the streets of Tehran, is this any surprise?
Obama didn't cave on this because of trade with China. He's already shown a willingness to risk a trade war to pay back the union bosses for the election favors he owes.
He caved because he has no backbone.
Update and word on the street is that Obama will be meeting with the Dalai Lama, but after talks with China. Has allot to do with the $800b debt China is holding for the USA. A tenuous situation of course. So all is not lost, it's just a game of chess to make sure the USA doesn't sink. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1009/27942.html
Just to keep China happy, US has to mend its traditional policies. Because US is indebted to China...
But on the other side, America pays billions to Pakistan just to keep the Taliban away. That money does not go to the declared purpose, everyone knows that. It is used to run their government, pile up arms against India. Even after receiving such a huge monetary aid, Pakistan seldom keeps US happy. They (Pak) feel that US is indebted to Pakistan also.
Yeah, it's sad that China pretty much owns the U.S. right now. It's funny how a country that has nukes pointed at us is funding our huge national debt. And all that interest they are making off of the U.S. goes to more military stuff to potential harm us.
And Obama doesn't have a backbone. He just tries to please everyone, like he does with his repetitious motivational speeches. I think everyone is starting to understand he is a good talker but has no clue what he's doing after he gives a speech.
As long as Obama keeps spending money, the Chinese will be happy because of the interest they will get in the future

"Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day."-- Dalai Lama
