The Chinese are fuming but these days few care about their "sensitivities" in Washington. In this post-sensitive era, it's OK to rain on their parade. The latest "outrage" was a 12-city, 26-day tour by Lobsang Sangay, president of the Tibetan government in-exile, through Europe, Canada and the US. Tibet is not politics but a matter of principle for the BJP and RSS.
