It amuses me to no end that the Dalai Lama is shedding no tears over the death of Osama bin Laden.
During an appearance at USC yesterday, the Tibetan spiritual leader said, in response to a question about bin Laden’s death, “Forgiveness doesn’t mean forget what happened. … If something is serious and it is necessary to take counter-measures, you have to take counter-measures.”
I wonder if The Dalai Lama’s response had anything to do with the Taliban blowing up two Buddhist statues in Afghanistan back in March 2001. I’m sure he hasn’t forgotten.
