China has protested against the meeting of Tibet's Dalai Lama with President Obama because according to China The Dalai Lama is an Insurgent in exile.
Human Rights campaigner Robert Anderson says that the Dalai Lama is in exile because if he goes back to China the Chinese will have him executed. Tibet is a subdued colonial province
under Chinese rule and the Tibetan's are treated like second class citizens by the ruling Chinese authorities.
Robert claims that if China was not such a powerful nation they would be banned from the United Nations because their human rights record is horrendous.
