Not Tibet it is, then

Guambat ran with the post title Tibet or not Tibet when news of the "China" earthquake broke about a week ago, noting "It will be interesting to see how this gets reported and received once the Tibet angle sinks in."

China is making its druthers known on the ground, as the AP reports:

Tibetan monks ordered to leave China's quake zone
Now the Buddhist monks who responded first are being pushed out of the disaster area and off of state media — apparently sidelined by Beijing's unease with their heroism and influence.

Monasteries were given verbal orders this week to recall their monks. Amid hours of coverage for China's national day of mourning on Wednesday, no monks were visible in the official proceedings.
