China Get Out of Tibet!

Ummmmm .... whatever for?
At least 100 people have already been killed according to an unconfirmed report cited in a CNN story.
The international community must demand that China get out of Tibet. No more excuses, China's authoritarian and oppressive hand needs more than just a slap.
It is high time that we Boycott China, its goods, and its damn Olympics.
***Update(March 16, 10:21am SA)***
CNN is showing live images at this hour obtained via "Hong Kong Cable TV" of "heavily armed Chinese troops" going door to door in Lhasa looking for protestors.
The video images are being "smuggled" out by possible dissidents. China, of course, does not want the 'outside world' to see them clamping down.
These images remind me of apartheid South Africa and the manner that police would take to the streets to round up dissenters.
Rounding up protestors is a common strategy in China. Let us not forget the brutal manner in which authorities rounded up people after the Tiananmen Square massacre in in 1989.
