Clearly, Tibet and the Dalai Lama are at the centre of a propaganda war between the United States and Communist China. In virtually all western media, the Tibetans are portrayed like the Ewoks from Star Wars - as cute, cuddly, harmless and deeply spiritual - while the Chinese are demonized - sinophobic charicatures like Ming the Merciless from Flash Gordon spring to Mind. This media distortion has been carefully orchestrated with the US's vested interests in mind. A closer analysis of the Wikileaks cables reveals statistics that challenge this popular myth.
In one cable it reveals that far from being pacifists, most of the Tibetans serve in the military. The cables states:
'Most Tibetan men in northeastern India join the SFF [Special Frontier Force]. In Gangtok,[...] the majority of men work for the SFF; and in Ravangla, 90% of the Tibetan families have at least one family member serving.'
