well, aside from being a part of China since the yuan dynasty (13th centry), Tibet is reconized as a city of China. Your question its basicly like what claim the US have for New York
China saw land and resource opportunity for themselves to take over Tibet. They knew that no one was going to stop them in invading Tibet.

Who imperialized Tibet?


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.

Did China invade Asia?

yes they didANSWER 2china invaded Tibet and Tibet is still an occupied country subject to some severe and often brutal attempts at control - china is one of the last of the "old school" communist dictatorships but is trying to enter the modern world - but that "old school" mentality is concerned with saving face and such and solving the Tibet problem is probably one of public image - with the end of the cold war china really doesnt need Tibet as it once did (for border security) but its hard for them to back out due to the stubborness of its leaders also if not for the protection of the USA Taiwan would be invaded instantly by mainland china - and don't forget the Korean war - the Chinese had a big part in that and they almost wonchina has a long history of invasion, including the Philippines, okinawa, and japan - some of those invasions ended in disaster for china
