"The CIA's Secret War in Tibet takes readers from training camps in the Colorado Rockies to the scene of clandestine operations in the Himalayas..." ~from the publisher: University Press of Kansas
I wonder if that explains why there are so many of those bumper stickers here in Boulder (though I know that this is the real explanation.)
My point is not that Tibet should remain under China's heavy-handed control, but rather to suggest that the reasons for CIA intervention had nothing to do with preserving Buddhism and everything to do with keeping the Evil Empire from getting its hands on a substantial stash of fissionable material.
“Official Chinese pronouncements have
confirmed the existence in Tibet of the
biggest uranium reserves in the world.”
In case you doubt the source, that's from a white paper titled State of Tibet's environment on tibet.com, a site "maintained and updated by The Office of Tibet, the official agency of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in London."
So here's a question for you. Should all that Tibetan uranium color our reading of His Holiness's latest book title?
