No is the simple answer. Tibet cannot escape China's pull. No one will risk China's ire over pesky Tibet.

Lots of non-Tibetan protesters will join "Free Tibet" protests in the US, CAN, UK, EU, AU, etc.

Is the Free Tibet movement big in Tibet?
The idea of autonomy certainly has plenty of popular support, but as far as the movement itself goes, the PRC suppresses protests of this nature (as well as in Xinjiang, Mongolia, and of course in the mainland itself), and making your support of it known is a great way to get on the government's radar and get taken in to have a long conversation with some very stern men... so, the movement isn't quite as active and vocal as it is elsewhere.

Not in Singapore and Malaysia- where the Han Chinese not only do not marry out but retain their Chinese language and identities. In Malaysia, there are even full fledge Chinese medium schools where everything including science and math are taught in Chinese! Please educate yourself. Google since you don't know. Chinese in Singapore is the majority race from 100 years ago and Chinese in both places retain their surnames, have Chinese names (eg John Tan Kok Wah) and is not very much "less Chinese" than a state like Hong Kong which was subject to british influence but kept its identity very Chinese due to big composition of percentage.

You can't just say, hey, because they land-grabbed in the past, we should be able to do it too.

If you're going with the principle that might is right, then well, technically, the U.S can just nuke you(and then the Europeans countries and Russians are left standing). If the Chinese are smart, then they should help the surrounding Asian countries develop nuclear weapons, not trying to land-grab.
Acting like a bully will probably only get your own race get wiped out.
Is this a threat?? Why don't you try, redneck?

Not saying might is right. Just saying you're not one to talk. So many people concurrently telling you the same message in one thread and you still don't get it. Repeating yourself doesn't let you "win". Where will the US citizens go? I don't know how about you kill yourselves?
