China thinks it owns Taiwan, though it’s governed itself for six decades. It does now own Tibet, since 1959, when it led a “People’s Revolution” there at the tip of a tank gun.

Beijing has vowed to bring Taiwan under its rule, by force if necessary.

Beijing calls the Dalai Lama a “splittist” who seeks to separate nearly a quarter of the land mass of the People’s Republic of China.

The Dalai Lama, however, denies the charge and says he seeks greater rights, including religious freedom and autonomy for Tibetans. Reuters.

Last week, the Dalai Lama visited Taiwan, angering China. Taiwan, however, seemed ecstatic. And nothing spells enthusiasm like a custom latte. Video:
