The least the White House could have done was to remove or cover the garbage bags before he left. Then again, perhaps that was a way to appease the Chinese- see, we won't even respect him enough to let him out the front door, or remove our trash. Such disrespect.
Thankfully, the Dalai Lama has the humbleness and grace to accept things as they are, unlike Obama's arrogance and conceit, and understood the need to keep the meeting low key. So the two Nobel Peace Prize winners, although one was undeserving of the award, met for the first time today in the map room. No reporters were allowed at the meeting, but the Dalai Lama later mentioned he had told Obama how much he admired this country's championing of "democracy, freedom, human values." Which of course, is a far cry from China's tight-fisted, oppressive, communist policies.
China, of course, considers the Dalai Lama a threat:
Although admired by millions around the world as a man of peace, the Dalai Lama is accused by Beijing of being a dangerous separatist who foments unrest in Tibet.
Ironic considering imperialist, communist China invaded Tibet in 1950, so it's not a question of separatism. Maybe some day China will grow up and stop acting like that spoiled child.
