Who made the 'Tibet Issue' complicated?

Recently, the 14th Dalai Lama openly claimed that "Tibet Issue" has become more complicated due to the Chinese government's policies, but it turns out to be another lie of the Dalai Lama.
First, let's take a look back, and see how the Dalai Lama and his separatist follwers faked their story by completely twisting the historical facts.
When a preparatory committee was founded in 1956 to arrange work for the establishment of Tibet Autonomous Region, the central government announced that the democratic reform in Tibet would not be put into practice within six years.
At the time, some upper-class reactionaries in Tibet proposed to keep feudal serfdom under the theocracy forever. Also, they were incited by the imperialist U.S. and British governments, starting their scheme to separate Tibet from the motherland.
In March 1959, misguided by the rumor that "the Han wants to arrest the Dalai Lama", some innocent Tibetans, abetted by such conspirers, started to gather and an armed rebellion was thus ignited.
Fleeing from Lhasa, the 14th Dalai Lama declared the establishment of "Independent State of Tibet" in Lhoka. Later, he fled abroad.
Now, we have clearly seen that it is the Dalai Lama's separatist scheme that factually stirred up the so-called "Tibet Issue".
Then, let's turn our eyes on the past six decades. It is really impressive that Tibet has made such substantial progress in various aspects, thanks to increasing investment from the central government.
Statistics indicates that from 1959 to 2008, the transferred fiscal support to Tibet from the central government totaled 201.9 billion yuan. Particularly, in recent years, 90 out of every 100 yuan of spending in Tibet has come from the central finance.
Again, look at the Dalai Lama and his followers. They've come with no idea on how to improve Tibetans' livelihood or on how to develop Tibet. Instead, they've tried persistently to obstruct the development of Tibet including, making groundless accusations, harassing the international community from any participation in the modernization and development of Tibet.
The14th Dalai Lama and his followers have fabricated rumors to demonize Tibet and advocated the so-called extirpation of Tibetan culture. Tibetan separatists have for many times harassed activities of the Chinese Delegation of Tibetan Culture Exchange because they have showed the true picture of Tibet to the world and gave the Dalai Lama a terrific slap on the face.
So what is the nature of the "Tibet Issue"? There is no such a thing as "Tibet Issue" before the Opium War in 1840. It was a result of the imperialist invasion to China. In 1941, the British imperialism plotted "Simla Conference" and created "McMahon Line", an illegal boundary line which encroached a large land of Tibet; the American imperialism announced at the same time that "the U.S. would provide all the weapons after Tibet's independence"; in 1947, Britain once again planned the "Pan Asia Conference", striving to separate Tibet from China but failed due to the strong opposition from the Chinese government and people.
Those historical facts, especially the current political and economic situation in the whole world indicate that some western countries, regardless of other countries' sovereignty, independence and interests, have overthrown other governments and stirred up troubles just for their own interests. On the other hand, the Dalai Lama and his followers, acting in collusion with Western anti-China forces, oppose their own country and become traitors finally. In this sense, the Dalai Lama and the people behind him are to blame since they are the real maker of the "Tibet Issue".
