    Nobel Peace Prize in 1989.
    Congressional Medal of Honor from USA–Highest Award American Govt. can offer-under George W. Bush

    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
