Or even worse, perhaps you mean like Spanish "colonization" of the Basque region?
The fact is that Tibet has been part of China for a long time, longer than the US have existed, and have recently had their attempts at BREAKING away from China, just like Basque has tried in Spain. Both are rebel populations in a region where the majority doesnt necessarily support indpendence, and where such is historically incorrect.
Like I said also, personally I support greater regionalism in Europe, but China is nowhere near Europe in such a maturity that it can even think about such things. But heck, then again, I support Californian independence or indepenence of many regions both in Europe and the US. Not exactly mainstream like all the wrong bickering about Tibet, just because western politics through media brainwashing is trying to wage war against a China they fear.
Lets instead hope that China keep moving in the direction they do, and keep their 1 party, and keep making it less authorative, and keep giving the people more and more influence over political decisions. Thats democracy, what we have in the west will then be considered very poor democracy.
