the utter cowards!
kapidhwaja, you are right, we are about to bend over and grease up for the chinaman.
note the irony: nov 18th, 1962 -- the last stand of 13th kumaon in chushul, fending off chinese invaders
nov 20th, 2006 -- the chinese dictator is an honored guest in india. he is the man who was responsible for the latest pogroms in tibet, as he was the military administrator there, for which he was promoted to be chief communist
we insult the memory of our poor soldiers who died with honor. honor, an alien concept to the Old Left and the Congress.

Friends of Tibet Condemns 'Deportation Threat'
(Bombay, November 13, 2006)
In anticipation of Chinese President Hu Jintao to India, the Indian Government
served Tibetan poet and General Secretary of Friends of Tibet, Tenzin Tsundue,
with an order forbidding him to leave the territorial jurisdiction of
Dharamshala Town until November 25, 2006 and threatened with 'Deportation to
Tibet'. The letter, issued by the Office of the Superintendent of Police,
threatens Tsundue with prosecution under the Foreigners Act of 1946 if he fails
to obey the order. The pressure on Tsundue is the result of his high profile
protests during the visits of Chinese Prime Ministers Zhu Rongji and Wen Jiabao
in 2002 and 2005. Hu Jintao will visit India from November 20-23, 2006.
India is committed to a democratic and pluralistic Constitution. It ought to
act with responsibility by protecting those who are engaged in the protection
and preservation of their religion and culture, a legacy, which the Tibetans
inherited from India. Indians should be proud that they have an opportunity of
not only protecting but also receiving their legacy from the Tibetan people,
who have kept it alive at great sacrifice and chosen to seek shelter on our
soil and return this legacy to India once again.
Friends of Tibet condemns the undemocratic manner in which Tenzin Tsundue was
handled by the officials. We believe that this is an attack on the freedom of
all those who are living in a democratic country and disrespect to those who
struggled for India's freedom.
