Butchers of Beijing Part X

Hundreds of Tibetan protesters are dead in a deadly crackdown by the People's Liberation Army in Tibet. Looks a bit like Tiananmen II but the ChiComms have gotten much smarter on publicity. Oh and this is amazing and sad and not unexpected:

The last major protests in Tibet took place in 1989, when China's current President Hu Jintao was in charge of the region. He ordered a harsh crackdown that established him as a rising star in the Chinese leadership hierachy, but is believed to have resulted in hundreds of deaths.

Maybe it will be enough to deal Beijing a big black eye for the Summer Olympics.
