Violent riots continue in Tibet, and it'll be curious how this is resolved. This isn't Myanmar, where people don't even know where it lies on a map. This is Tibet, and even if lots of people can't find that on a map, they still know the Dalai Lama. They still know Buddhism. On top of that, China already has their hands full trying to make everything seem hunky dory in time for the Olympics in 143 days. The thing is, though, it's China. Nobody expects them to be freeing all their political prisoners. Nobody thinks they'll actually get out of Tibet. Nobody expects change of any sort, I'll wager, other than the ceremonial.

and we all know how great that ceremonial change is. I mean look at how well things worked our in Myanmar.
