Translator’s Note: The racist Trump Administration continues its highly aggressive attacks upon China’s self-determination with a multi-dimensional offensive which includes a policy to dismember the Mainland by removing Tibet, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan from its sovereignty. The exiled 14th Dalai Lama is a capitalist-supporting criminal currently employed by the CIA. As such, he is an agent of US racism, and no longer represents Tibet. When he chose to betray China and take the side of foreigners, he lost any relevance he may have once had. This is why the US ‘Tibet Support Act (2019)’ is nothing but a sham document with no power or importance for Tibet or China. When the Dalai Lama finally passes, his corrupt interpretation of Buddhism will die with him, as will his treachery and deceipt! In the meantime, the people of Tibet (both ‘lay’ and ‘monastic’) are going about the lawful business of administering the TAR! ACW (4.2.2020)
