Sounds good :)

But of course, it's unfortunate that most Westerners, many whom don't even know where Tibet really is, baselessly assume that Beijing is destroying Tibetan culture relics instead of trying to preserve them...

===============================================================
That biased view was based on the assumption how the minority people are to be treatted. That was the way how the white people treated the native people in North America, Australis, NZ...etc. They just assume Chinese are treating the minorities the same way as they did.

The money for the railway should've been spent on building
schools and buying textbooks for the poor kids.
================================================
There are tangible and intangible return that you cannot count. The railway makes Tibet a real integal part of China's economic system, not to mention its great improvement to the development of Tibet, which is a large piece of land of the Chinese territories, think about its natural resource. If Tibet is kept undeveloped, it is also a potential source of trouble and it will definely affect the overall development of the whole China.
