I hope so. This is their best chance for a long time to come as a generation will nearly have come and gone by the
time china gets the olympics again, _if ever_. May that will be an incentive for them to relent and honor the Tibetans
now rather than later. An academic in the London School of Economics was interviewed on the BBC or maybe NPR and said 
that twenty percent of all mainland Chinese are completely sympathetic towards the Tibetans and their cause and many
if not most of them are Buddhist. If these Chinese were allowed to speak and act freely with regard to Tibet they
would offer an immediate outpouring of support for the Tibetans.
