The U.S. has hurt China’s feelings again:

An indignant China said Friday the U.S. “seriously hurt the feelings of the Chinese people” when Congress passed a resolution calling on Beijing to stop cracking down on Tibetan dissent and talk to the Dalai Lama.

Athletes who show support for Tibet may be expelled from the Olympics for engaging in “propaganda”, according to the Times of London. Activist Majora Carter of the Bronx is profiled in the New York Times and Daily News for displaying the Tibetan flag while carrying the torch.

The little guys are getting in on the act: San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom feels that the torch should bypass Tibet. And the province of Ontario will “express concern” over the Tibetan situation.

Louise Blouin MacBain writes in Forbes:

Still, I remain convinced that substantial negotiation is possible if His Holiness directly engages the fundamental issues concerning Tibet. I am further convinced that His Holiness will find a willing and serious partner in negotiation with the Chinese.
