Among other reasons for independence, campaigners assert that Tibet has been historically independent.
However, some dispute this claim by using different definitions of "Tibet", "historical" and "independence".

This event marked the incorporation of Tibet into the Mongol Empire. Tibet was under administrative rule of the Yuan dynasty until the s. At that point, Tibet regained its independence. Inthe Qing dynasty army entered Tibet in aid of the locals and defeated the invading forces of the Dzungar Khanate ; thus began the period of Qing rule of Tibet.

By the early 18th century, the Qing dynasty had started to send resident commissioners Ambans to Lhasa. Tibetan factions rebelled in and killed the resident commissioners after the central government decided to reduce the number of soldiers to about The Qing army entered and defeated the rebels and reinstalled the resident commissioner.
The number of soldiers in Tibet was kept at about 2, The defensive duties were assisted by a local force which was reorganized by the resident commissioner, and the Tibetan government continued to manage day-to-day affairs as before.

Some documents claim that 5, Tibetans were killed by the British army. The Anglo-Chinese Convention of recognized Chinese suzerainty over the region  and the Anglo-Russian Convention ofwithout Lhasa 's or Beijing's acknowledgement, recognized the suzerainty of China over Tibet. In the same month, the Chinese government issued a proclamation 'deposing' the Dalai Lama and instigating the search for a new incarnation.
The subsequent outbreak of World War I and civil war in China meant that the Chinese factions only controlled part of Tibet. The situation in Amdo Qinghai was more complicated, with the Xining area controlled by warlord Ma Bufang of Hui ethnicitywho constantly strove to No-One But You (Only The Good Die Young) - Queen - Greatest Hits III control over the rest of Amdo Qinghai.

Inthe Seventeen Point Agreement for the Peaceful Liberation of Tibeta treaty signed Wish It All Away - Various - International Pop Overthrow Vol. 9 representatives of the Dalai Lama and the Panchen Lamaprovided for rule by a joint administration under representatives of the central government and the Tibetan government. The Chinese have claimed that most of the population of Tibet at that time were serfsbound to land owned by lamas.

The Seventeen Point Agreement was put into effect only in Tibet proper; ergo, eastern Kham and Amdo, being outside the administration of the government of Tibet, were treated like territory belonging to any other Chinese provincewith land reform implemented in full. As a result, a rebellion broke out in these regions in June The rebellion eventually spread Fight Back - Tibet - Tibet Lhasa, but was crushed by The 14th Dalai Lama and other government principals fled to exile in India.

However, their request for an audience was refused by the Lord Chamberlain, Phala Thubten Wondenwho believed such a meeting would be impolitic. Nor did he inform the Dalai Lama of American willingness to provide aid. Following a mass uprising in Lhasa in during the celebration Lautre Valse DAmélie - Yann Tiersen - Amélie the Tibetan New Year and the ensuing Chinese military response, Fight Back - Tibet - Tibet Dalai Lama went into exile in India.

The government in exile say they knew that the CIA trained and equipped Tibetan guerrillas who raided Tibet from a base camp in Nepal, and that the effect of those operations "only resulted in more suffering for the people of Tibet.

As such, the Central Tibetan Administration CTA views current PRC rule in Tibet as illegitimate, motivated solely by the natural resources and strategic value of Tibet, and in violation of both Tibet's historical status as an independent country and the right of the Tibetan people to self-determination. On the other hand, opponents assert that the PRC rules Tibet legitimately, by saying that Tibet has been part of Chinese history since the 7th century as the Tibetan Empire had close interactions with the Chinese dynasties through royal marriage.

According to Patrick Frencha supporter of the Tibetan cause who was able to view the data and calculations, the estimate is not reliable because the Tibetans were not able to process the data well enough to produce a credible total, with many persons double or triple counted.
There were, however, many casualties, perhaps as many asSmith made from census reports of Tibet which show"missing" from Tibet. The Central Tibetan Administration also says that millions of Chinese immigrants to the TAR are diluting the Tibetans both culturally and through intermarriage. Exile groups say that despite recent attempts to restore the appearance of original Tibetan culture to attract tourism, the traditional Tibetan way of life is now irrevocably changed.

However, Tenzin Gyatsothe current Dalai Lamathe spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhists, is no longer calling for independence. He has spoken in many international Fight Back - Tibet - Tibet , including the United States Congressand the European Parliament.
