Non-violence cannot tackle terrorism: Dalai Lama
Intersted---no comments or responses. I thought there were those that were positive that terrorism could never be overcome by violence.
Who cares what the Dalai Lama has to say?
lots--he has a bigger following than even you !
I kinda have to Lol about this one, parts of the Tibetan autonomy movement propably commited acts of terrorism, and definitly considered it.
He is spot on on the "terrorists" beeing bright and well educated though.
This also held through for the German RAF and propably also to the IRA although I know less about them.
This is a great passage.
I didn't think it was possible, but I found even more respect and admiration for the Dalai Lama!
Yeah weird how the liberals like to ignore this. Just like Bono's gave praise to Bush as well for his work on AIDS in Africa.
Well, America's pro-Tibet hippies have always been hypocrites: they jump on the anti-Tibet fad, but I've never seen them promote Hawaiian secession, which has just as much of a legal case -if not more- than Tibetan independence does. Tibet was loosely ruled by Qing-era China until it was invaded and fully incorporated into the People's Republic of China in 1950. Hawaii was never part of the United States until the 1890s, in fact it was an internationally-recognized sovereign state -even recognized by the United States- before American invasion and annexation. Just more evidence that American liberals are just as nationalist and ethnocentric as American conservatives, something that completely flies over the heads of both sides.
My question is: did the Dalai Lama say anything about invading a country that had nothing to do with 9/11?
That message was probably sent on a different brain wave.
