Chinese Lies About Tibet

Tibet was independent of China from 1912 to 1951. The Chinese invaded in 1951. The Chinese could argue that they have a legitimate claim to Tibet based on the state of affairs prior to 1912, but they go much further than that. They pretend that Tibet was under Chinese control even during the period 1912 to 1951. Why would they have to invade if they were already in control of the territory? The Chinese people have told lies about Tibet so often that they have begun to believe the lies themselves.
