Hello Dalai

President Bush met with the Dalai Lama recently- the first time a US President has ever done so. He's also awarding the Dalai Lama the Congressional Medal of Honor. China is acting pissed and stomping their feet, which they also did when the leaders of Germany and Australia met with the Dalai Lama; but the meeting probably won't have any long-term effects. I think people tend to forget that China is still a developing nation- their economy is still decades behind the US and they will continue to need US friendship into the future. So, let them bluster. Bush was right to meet with the Dalai Lama.

And, god, I would have loved to be a fly on the wall for that meeting!
