Should Tibet be considered a part of China?

Should? Well the fact remains that Tibet has been apart of China since the Qin Dynasties which were hundreds or thousands of years ago. China's main goal in the 1980s was to modernize Tibet. Truth is that if Tibet was independent, they would still be living a 3rd world country and they would highly depend on donations to keep them afloat. China is pouring large sums of money into Tibet to make it reliant and if Tibet was to ever claim independance it wouldn't last very long...what would their people do for a living? Pray for food in the temples? WRONG! And the 15th Dali Lama enslaved and killed thousands of people and did worse that what China has ever done. The 15th Dali Lama told his men to kill anyone who wasnt a buhdist from what i heard.
