China plays the victim card

China is playing the victim. And in Beijing's playbook, the big bad bully is none other than the Dalai Lama.
They say he "is behind last week's violent protests in Lhasa and that he was trying to 'take advantage of the moment' to extract leverage ahead of the Olympic Games.

"I'd like to reiterate that the Chinese government will resolutely safeguard its national sovereignty and territorial integrity," Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao told a news conference.

He said the "atrocities of the Tibetan independence forces manifested ... the hypocrisy and deceit of its peace and non-violence propaganda," in a reference to supporters of the Dalai Lama.
