Fake Tibetan Monks

I saw a reference, which sadly doesn't have a link I can share, about Chinese soldiers dressing up as Tibetan monks to cause trouble.  Some of them are even entering monasteries!

And I just cracked up laughing.  Do they hang lamb chops around their necks before attempting to exterminate wolves?  I wonder how many spooks they have lost to enlightenment.  Okay, they are doing significant damage, but I suspect it's going to be a very Pyrrhic victory at best, if they don't wind up losing more than they gain.  Boy is China going to repress the hell out of those statistics.  I mean I thought it was kooky when they just tried to outlaw unauthorized reincarnation, but now they're throwing some of their best dudes to the other side.  I just ... WTF?  Is somebody over there trying to sabotage their sabotage?

The degree to which this is starting to resemble one of my science fiction story arcs, the settling of the planet Shambhala, is just getting freaky.
