If this is true, it is a bombshell(emphasis mine):
London, March 20 – Britain’s GCHQ, the government communications agency that electronically monitors half the world from space, has confirmed the claim by the Dalai Lama that agents of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army, the PLA, posing as monks, triggered the riots that have left hundreds of Tibetans dead or injured.
GCHQ analysts believe the decision was deliberately calculated by the Beijing leadership to provide an excuse to stamp out the simmering unrest in the region, which is already attracting unwelcome world attention in the run-up to the Olympic Games this summer.
Violence mars the message of the most worthwhile protests. There have been accounts of undercover police officers inciting violence in protests here in the states, so this wouldn’t be without precedent.
There’s still time to sign the petition for dialogue.
