Don't want to get lost in politics, but this was build to celebrate the liberation of Tibet...... It's an eye soar in front of Potala Palace and is simply used to remind everyone who is in charge.

China built this Square right in front of the Potala Palace. Was this intended to make the Tibetan people succumb.It is large and imposing. A throw back to the Cultural Revolution.
