In just about every situation you can see both positive and negative sides to stories, but when it come to human rights violations it’s hard to see more than one side. The story of Tibet is so complex and so simply at the very same time. On one hand you can go as far back as the 1200s to get the history of Tibet and find out what dynasty did what to whom. On the other hand since when has history determined how we should handle disputes among nations, human rights should just be a common sense policy. China’s side is basically this; Tibet is and always has been “Chinese territory”. How can you invade a region that already belongs to you? In 1959 Tibet had been part of China for seven centuries. “ Beijing dispatched troops to prevent secession by the  serf-owning elite, which objected to the abolition of slavery, not to  implement annexation.” (Mazza, 2008) Doesn’t sound like the same  thing, does it?  The Chinese government just has a different tact to dealing with Tibetans and their culture, which is not very tactfully.
