My views are:

"It was her grave error. "

So it was wrong to battle against the French-papal forces and a Pope who officially later turned himself into a God by in 1870 creating the doctrine of Ex Cathedra - and infallibility?

Your views are how ever noted.

  We should be glad that they don't attribute to him the recent 
  Theosophical Society as a body cannot interfere into politics, while 
  individual members can. But even if all members will join the 
  campaign, they will be but a drop in the sea of existing campaigners 
  for Tibet and Burma.
  Yet there is another way to help - to spread theosophy among the 
  Chinese. Now many of them are permitted to travel abroad where they 
  are out of ideological control.
  Another way is to consult with Samdhong Rinpoche who is F.T.S. an 
  Tibetan prime-minister in exile; probably he knows better what to do.

  It was her grave error. She was of little use in the battle but due to 
  this bullet she became unable to perform greater work and died when 
  her work still wasn't finished.
