    Hi all,
    I’m Jens, come from Indonesia, a nice developing country, a country that still in fighting for terrorism, and the freedom to express religion sometimes is deteriorated by a little part of dominant religion followers who wants dominated others, and the right to preach religion freely is restricted by a state or ministers rule.
    I want to improve my ability in spoken English, or business English writing. so please do me your favor. thanks.

    You are right. We have to find out the truth.

    Then how do you know what you saw and heard from your goverment is true? I’ve seen the western media’s beautiful work on Lhasa’s violence,which took place on March 14th,2008–transplanted the photoes,distorted the truth, etc. Did your goverment or wiki something told you that? I live here and I can see by my eyes that the living condition of Tebit people has raised many many times than before, can you deny that truth? Have you come to China by youself to have a look before you start to criticize? I haven’t been to Iraq, and I never say the US killed 800,000 Iraq civilians,right? I just see that the Iraq people’s life is totally distroyed by someone, that is the truth, the most important thing is people’s life. So if you want to know the truth, you’ve got to see more, listen to more, and throw your colored glasses first.

    I appreciate your course of English learning, but I have to say your story about Tibet is stupid and unture. The Chinese soliders attacked Tibet and killed 80,000 Tibetans? This is ridiculous.
