When the Brits massacred the Tibetans, by Stevie Haston.
When armies and governments kill, it's still killing, when they plan it out it's still mass murder, when it's Britain who does it, your own country you should have a sense of great shame. Britain has done it many times, and looks like it's keen on doing it more, so just in case you don't get it, or understand, here is an example. The British killed thousands of innocent people in Tibet in 1903, and 1904. There was a medal for this campaign and one of the officers became a big force in the Alpine Club, so yes we have a war criminal as head of the Himalayan committee. His name was Younghusband.
The War if you can call a gratuitous invasion of a peaceful backward country, a war, was entirely bogus, and was just an adventure instigated by self surviving people.
The Dalai Lama had to abandon Lhasa, and some remaining lower officials were forced to sign a treaty. It was this little adventure that set the scene for the conquering of Everest, notice the British name! Maxine guns mowed down guys with flint locks, one British office said he was sick of killing people who were simply walking away. I could go on, and I meant to, but I am sick of this shameful story, and sick of the link with the Alpine Club. There you go, oh glorious alpine club.
