Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well I wanted to say un-truth but later realized that un-truth and lie are the same.

Didn't you say that "Tibet has been part of China since before the white man..." - you do feel comfortable with such distortion of history?

And yet you proceed to invoke some long-overdue sympathy for treatment China suffered at the hands of European powers and Japan then spinning into what real aspirations of Tibetans are (surprise, surprise in one-party state).

If you don't appreciate to be called a liar, you had better to think whether your statements are independently verifyable or not in advance.

Lie carries an intentional distortion, "You know that this is not true, but you are saying it anyway".

If it is untrue this can either be becuase it is a lie or because it is factually incorrect and the other person is unaware of it.
