Franz, very perceptive. 
Dictatorial governments no doubt excel in this form of discourse. 
How interesting it would be if one of the rich donors to Tibetan things in
the US funded a website on Chinese social drama, a la tibetaine.  That could
lead to expansions, taking in other dictatorial outfits around the world
(Vietnam's and the NK's govts. come to mind).

My favorite bit was this:

> The Xinhua report said the older Tibetan was also being stripped of his
"political rights" for life, while the younger would have his stripped for
three years.

A cruel punishment that must really break their spirits!

Seriously, what a perfect example of dramatic irony. Surely someone in the
government knows how ridiculous they seem. Well, one can only send out a
silent prayer (or curse).
