Monica wrote, "Didn't you know? Gere's a Buddhist...so that might explain his pacifist stance." That's probably true about Richard Gere. But I remember a comment in the Dalai Lama's autobiography which was not so pacifist. It referred to the Iranian revolution, and the taking of the American hostages. The Dalai Lama said we were acting too weak, and proposed this action: Bring every available airplane to fly over Tehran, and darken the skies with printed flyers. The flyers would be a warning and ultimatum: Release the prisoners within 24 hours, or all these planes would return with bombs, and Tehran would be erased.
