The Dalai Lama was feted in an elaborate public ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda in Washington, D.C., despite China's angry public warnings the event would damage relations between Washington and Beijing. President George W. Bush attended.

Okay, well, quite proud of the US for going ahead and celebrating the Dalai Lama and awarding him a Congressional Gold Medal despite fervent protests from the Chinese government. But they did concede by "downplaying" the event.

The ceremony was in marked contrast to Tuesday's private meeting between Bush and the Dalai Lama. The administration played down that meeting, providing no media access, not even a handout photo.

The handling of Tuesday's meeting was widely seen as a concession to China.

Bush had this to say: "[China] didn't like it, of course, but I don't think it's going to seriously damage relations."

What do you guys think? Any effects? Or is this "damage" dead in the water?

I'll be heading out to Toronto later this month to hear the Dalai Lama speak again. I'm really looking forward to it smile.gif
