God and war
: Andrew Greeley compares the administration’s spin to Goebel’s as he says that the war in Iraq is the result of a big lie.
: Meanwhile, the Dalai Lama says this:
he Dalai Lama, a winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and one of the world’s most prominent advocates of nonviolence, said in an interview yesterday that it might be necessary to fight terrorists with violence, and that it was “too early to say” whether the war in Iraq was a mistake.
“I feel only history will tell,” he said. “Terrorism is the worst kind of violence, so we have to check it, we have to take countermeasures.”
