reverted edits by 200.33.161.74[edit]

200.33.161.74 made a number of edits moving the article towards the PRC POV. Some of the edits were wording changes that reasonable people can (and have) disagree(d) on, for example invasion vs. liberation. Probably 200.33.161.74 should have discussed these first.
However other edits changed wording to direct quotes and statistics without regard to the sources, and a few of the wording changes created dead links from live ones: 8,500 -> 850,000 Tibetan troops, 5,000 -> few Tibetan casualties, "...Quamdo Battle..." -> "...Quamdo Skirmish...", Incorporation of Tibet into the People's Republic of China -> Reunification of Tibet into the People's Republic of China. Because of these, I reverted before discussing back to the 5Aug11 version by Davin.--Wikimedes (talk) 18:08, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

The IP has repeatedly added pro-Chinese POV additions without any discussion, despite having been warned by other users. I have reverted his most recent edits to article. If he does so again, I will report him.--SakyaTrizin (talk) 09:04, 10 August 2011 (UTC)

I agree with you as this page is giving a completely different perception of the Battle of Chamdo. I've found recently this tendency - favouring PRC - in several articles directly or indirectly related to China. And this is very serious.--Gicacoca (talk) 10:12, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

military campaign?[edit]

Was the campagn (= internal campaign name in PLA) really "Battle of Qamdo"? Sure not. Please rename the article to the PLA's campaign name, or maybe just change the word "campaign" or just "The Battle of Chamdo was the result of a Chinese campaign to invade Tibet." ? Cheers! --129.132.191.142 (talk) 19:12, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

I agree. The battle is part of the campaign. -- FutureTrillionaire (talk) 06:19, 14 December 2012 (UTC)

Discrepancies[edit]

It says in the article that "Britain wanted talks in India", and "Britain wanted no talks at all". Which one is true? If there are any more contradicting statements also put them here — Preceding unsigned comment added by Yny501 (talkcontribs) 12:04, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Britain preferred no talks at all, fearing that once the two sides discovered the irreconsilability of their positions, war would quickly follow. But if talks were to occur, Britain preferred that they take place in India. This comes from the Shakya Tsering reference cited at the end of the paragraph.--Wikimedes (talk) 17:16, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Contradiction[edit]

5,000 "liquidated" needs to be reconciled with the rest of the text. What's meant by liquidated? Is there legitimate disagreement between scholars? If so, what and why? MarcusGraly (talk) 17:30, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
