Oh gosh, he has won so many.
Nobel Peace Prize in 1989.
Congressional Medal of Honor from USA–Highest Award American Govt. can offer-under George W. Bush
Voted by Time Magazine as the # 1 most influential person on planet.
He and the Tibetan people are such victims per the brutal and savage invasion of Tibet by China (when China was under Mao)
An ancient and peaceful country was raped to the extreme by the Chinese. What the Chinese did to Tibet is far, far, far worse than what Japan did in Nanking, China in WWII

It is true he was given a Gonk in 1969 for keeping the Tibetan People in check but given his record He should have been given at least three Oscars and a Grammy by now As well as a five pointed star on Hollywood Boulevard He is a fraud Sold out six million Tibetan People and not worth a carrot
