Reference: Why China cannot let go of Tibet, Bangkok Post, March 20, 2008

Britain can't let go of Gibraltar, India can't let go of Assam, Indonesia can't let go of Western Papua, Turkey can't let go of Kurdistan, Russia can't let go of the Kurile Islands, Thailand can't let go of its Malay South, Pakistan couldn't let go of Bangladesh, and so on and so forth. Territorial ambition is an evil that is common to all nation states. It is not unique to China as implied in the article "Why China cannot let go of Tibet", Bangkok Post, March 20, 2008.
