you obviously know very little about the history of the incarnations of the dalai lama and the practice of tibetan buddhism to say that tenzin gyatso was chosen as a holy man because of the political needs of western countries to fracture and weaken china.
The person you're answering to didn't say so. He/She wrote"Dalai was only made a so called holy man because of the political needs of the western
countries": although this may sound ambiguous I think it's clear enough that he's referring to the mediatic image of dalai lama as boasted in the western world, and not to his being "chosen" as a holy man in the strictly religious acceptation of the term, which is of course a whole another matter.
Of course you may still argue with such a (somewhat revised) claim, and you seem informed enough to do so...
