‘Cultural Genocide’ as Tibet Protests Spread

(ABC News) Violence in Tibet spilled over into neighboring provinces Sunday where Tibetan protesters defied a Chinese government crackdown. The Dalai Lama warned Tibet faced "cultural genocide" and appealed to the world for help

Protests against Chinese rule of Tibet were reported in neighboring Sichuan and Qinghai provinces and also in western Gansu province. All are home to sizable Tibetan populations.

The demonstrations come after protests in the Tibetan capital Lhasa escalated into violence Friday, with Buddhist monks and others torching police cars and shops in the fiercest challenge to Beijing's rule over the region in nearly two decades.
Meanwhile, Al Gore and his Nobel Peace Prize are flying comfortably in his fuel-guzzling private jet to his luxurious energy-wasting mansion where his outrageously large lecture checks are sitting neatly in the mailbox.

-Ahh, the struggle for peace
