Dalai Lama Threatens to Step Down

Wow. He's pissed. I heard on NPR on the way to work that the Dalai Lama has threatened to step down as leader of Tibet in exile if the violent protests in the country don't stop. More at the BBC.

The guy has played fair and offered a lot to the Chinese government for so long. I hope he gets to go home some day.

And, as usual, he has some fun with the Chinese (in response to their accusations that he is behind the violence):

He also challenged China’s Government to investigate his offices – and even his own pulse, stools and urine – to back up their allegation that he masterminded the riots that began on Friday in Lhasa, the Tibetan capital.

What's Tibetan for "pwned"?
