From the article, near the end:
"Some of these questions seemed designed to bait the Dalai Lama into saying something really religious. But he managed to giggle his way out of every awkward moment, never saying anything that might offend his audience. After all, he wasn't at the conference to teach neuroscientists about Buddhist ideology or ethics—he was there to push a research agenda."

I took his statement, "Use force, with good intentions" as one of these "giggling his way out of it" events. I don't believe for a minute that he was serious.
