Dalai Lama on Iraq War

Posted by Warren Peterson on April 4, 2008

In September 2003, Scott Lindlaw of the Associated Press, reported

“The Dalai Lama said Wednesday that the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan may have been justified to win a larger peace, but that is it too soon to judge whether the Iraq war was warranted. ‘I think history will tell,’ he said in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday, just after he met with President Bush.”

It takes longer than five years, don’t you think, to assess the effect of a historical event as significant as the War on Terror and the battle for Iraq?
