Tibet, Kosovo, and the Olympics - Living up to Our Values

Lost in the news of election coverage, Spitzergate, and Barak’s pastoral issues there has been a major protest in Tibet, led again apparently by some very brave Buddhist monks.  Of course, it will be crushed or short-circuted.  Chinese Communist rulers have not survived all these years, including the days after Tinemman Square in 1989 (one of the saddest of my life - as a college student watching coverage, hoping that the people of China would be free, only to see those young people - my age - trounced by tanks and the army). 

So what are we to do, those who say we value human rights?
