Crusade

http://godfatherpolitics.com/16724/pope-world-fight-isis/

The Pope was speaking about ISIS when he said: "In these cases, where there is an unjust aggression, I can only say that it is licit to stop the unjust aggressor," Francis said. "I underscore the verb 'stop.' I'm not saying 'bomb' or 'make war,' just 'stop.' And the means that can be used to stop them must be evaluated."

While I applaud his recognition of ISIS as a danger to innocent people, I think he has stopped short of what he should say.  Some think the Pope may visit northern Iraq to show his support for Christians there, and I think he should do that.  I wonder what it will take for the Pope to declare a new Crusade against Islam?  If ISIS rampages across all of North Africa as they claim they will do.  If they then jump across the Mediterranean Sea to Sicily will the Pope consider that worthy of a Crusade against them?  Or will he wait until they are moving up the Italian boot beheading little Italian girls before that call is to be made?  

Western nations are too timid, they have allowed themselves to cut their military and even more they have lost their will to fight for what is right.  The West needs to pull themselves together.  They need to return to Christ, return to seeing Western values as superior to other values, return to hard work and military dominance; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
