14th Dalai Lama: Too late to 'retire'
08:27, April 06, 2011  

In the name of "retirement", the 14th Dalai Lama tried to get rid of "Tibet Independence" activities. He has been condemned by Chinese people and overseas Chinese worldwide and his "non-violent" image has also been questioned by world public opinions after serious crime committed by 'the Dalai Clique' on Mar. 14, 2008 aimed at hindering the Beijing Olympics torch relay through violence.

From "the retirement" day on, The 14th Dalai Lama will be able to turn a blind eye and assume no responsibilities to all violent crimes committed by his followers. The extremist of "Tibet Independence" could do whatever they want.

"Tibetan Youth Congress" declared in the Mar. 10th statement to practice "Tibet Independence" at all costs under the leadership of the Dalai Lama and "Tibetan government in exile". The 14th Dalai Lama responded with appraisal.
DouWi News commented that the risks of Tibet issues turning into terrorism surely exist. However, the retirement of 14th Dalai Lama will make Tibetan Separatists in Dharamsala more isolated since the Chinese government has more say in the world. In addition, the U.S. government and other western political forces that support them will loose moral persuasion on Tibet Issue.

Whether the 14th Dalai Lama is able to stay out of this? Obviously he cannot.

Another advantage of Dalai Lama's "retirement" is that he can set aside for more international activities as a "purely religious leader" in the future.

However, his plan may not work well. The Dalai Lama cannot separate from his separatists' clique. There are fewer and fewer foreign political powers, who would like to support him and oppose to the Chinese government.

The public opinion in China will still keep an eye on exposing and criticizing the splitters' words and deeds without being affected by the Dalai Lama's "retirement" speech.
