There were from memory another 11 main monasteries, some of whom were treated very poorly by the Lhasa authorities for centuries.

Yes, and there were "quislings" in Norway who welcomed the Nazi invasion of Norway in WWII.
Nonetheless, Germany had no right to invade the nation of Norway, and China had no right to invade the nation of Tibet.
