How do you think the US/Canada conquered North America?
Wait, you normally refuse to talk about that.

trading so much that they eventually took the whole continent and the aboriginals volunteered to give up their land and home?

Don't really have a problem with the UK. They lost their empire after world war 2. What does France have? French guyana? Tahiti? Not worth it. No resources. Plus, this is the Asia board. Not the europe or US board. Stay on topic!

There is no "should" or "should not" be independent in world politics, it's just a matter of power and whether the imperial power is strong enough to hold a territory or lose it. Everything else is simply justification for a fact on the ground.

But if you all want to play this game, then where are the Ryukyus or the Liu Qius???? Or Hawaii?

I think there is a better chance that the 3 most Southern provinces of Thailand (Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat) will become part of Malaysia in the future instead of having their own country.

Yea, Tibet should secede and return to a slave society and Dalai Lama can return as the King, repossessing the 8000 slaves he used to own.

How does Tibet plan to pay for the railway and highways China built? I am not sure its entire GDP is sufficient.

They wont. They want to get them free, just like the Tibetan refugees get EBT benefits for free in the US as political refugees. They don't work, and they don't pay any taxes. They just practice protesting in front of the UN building all day long.
