Dalai Lama: China aims to annihilate Buddhism

As you may or may not know, I'm a big fan of His Holyness, the Dalai Lama. I've read several of his books. I'm also a supporter of the Free Tibet movement. I think what the Chinese government has done, and continues to do, is absolutely horrid and ranks with the likes of Stalin and Hitler.

Now the Dalai Lama says the Chinese government is working to annihilate Buddhism in China and Tibet.
"They are putting the monks and nuns in prison-like conditions, depriving them the opportunity to study and practice in peace," he said, accusing Chinese of working to "deliberately annihilate Buddhism."
If you don't think this is bad, just imagine if the American government decided to erradicate Christianity in the name of the state. That's basically what's happening over there. Pretty horrible situation.

Update: And here's why I think the US is mum on the subject - Beijing vows not to use U.S. debt for political gain
