WHAT'S THE CHINESE FOR--"WAH!":

China demands U-turn on Obama's Dalai Lama meet (AFP, 2/12/10)

China on Friday demanded the White House cancel a meeting between US President Barack Obama and the Dalai Lama, warning that already strained ties between the two powers would be damaged further.

Beijing reacted angrily to the White House announcement that Obama would next week receive the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader, accused by China of seeking independence for his homeland.

"We firmly oppose the Dalai Lama visiting the United States and US leaders having contact with him," foreign ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu said.


Pssst...no one cares what the PRC wants.
