China Orders Tibetan Resettlement

China is ordering the mass resettlement of Tibetans -- at their own expense, even. Even Stalin paid for the train ride to the Siberia gulag. But China is obviously feeling a need to crack down on such pampering subsidies. Next year, they'll be charging the prisoners for the shackles they wear.

Hmm, you don't exercise your imagination too much San. How about this: The Chinese government charges the family of anyone executed, for the cost of the bullet used to execute him or her. I believe they are now changing their method of execution. China has outfitted several buses to serve as mobile execution stations. I believe their preferred method is lethal injection. To charge Tibetans for their resettlement is nothing now, don't you think?
