Bet there's oil under Tibet

A nation of 3 million people superglued to the side of the Himalayas mountain range.

Currently occupied by China and not pleased about it. World wide whyning about the occupation of Tibet threatened to embarrass the Chinese during their Olympics. Obviously they aren't embarrassed about their human rights record, they just dont like the entire world to see anyone complain about it.

The Dalai Lama (old religious bloke a bit like an oriental pope) used to be in charge but has now been in exile since 1959, roughing it in many 5 star hotels around the world. The Chinese government refers to him as a "splittist" (intent on breaking away from the china) making him sound like something out a Monty Python skit.
