Regarding the Nov. 17 article “Nationalism, Tibetans and Uighurs in Today’s China“: I wonder how the United States would look upon the American Indians if they tried to gain independence from the U.S. by reclaiming lands that were stolen by them.

I wonder what the U.S. would do if Mexicans living in Texas tried to break away and rejoin Mexico. Probably the same way it looks at Palestinians who are being evicted from their homes. A big yawn.
