    Yeah I think the Pope is 1) towing the line of the church and 2) not unaware that Italy has been a very easy soft target for terrorism in the past.

    How does that old saying end? Some here seem to have, well, forgotten it. "Those who do not remember history..."

    So, the Vatican is concerned about an attack on Syria causing another world war. Are they overreacting? Do they know something most others don't know?

    Another article in the German daily "Die Welt", a commentary, compares the situation to Serbia 1914:
    Militärintervention : Kann der Konflikt in Syrien im Weltkrieg enden? - Nachrichten Debatte - Kommentare - DIE WELT

    What do you think?
    Not sure about a World War. I am sure though that Pope Francis is extremely concerned about what could happen to the Christians of Syria. It's also not out of the question to think an attack on Syria could lead to involvement from Iran,who might attack Israel and perhaps Jordan. Unlikely but not something that could not happen. World War 1 started and escalated over far less.

    I think there might be a chance of WW only if Israel get involved. By attacking or by being attacked.

    Syria already promised to bomb Israel if attacked. Iran also mentioned something of the kind.

    The prospects of WW3 are very, very real.

    Russia has its largest and only marine base outside its territory in Syria and thus supports Assad. The West/the pro-Western gulf states support the rebels. America wants to push Russia out of the ME, because they consider them a strategic enemy that must be rolled back.
    No they don't. The 'red threat' is all but forever diminished. What might be the 'strategic' advantage of backing Russia against a wall? It's already crippled. Does one corner a wounded animal? One with such sharp teeth? Russia has interests in oil, too, yet has nothing like America's credit or purchasing power. In the present time, they're only a threat to the extent they're threatened. Russia won't endanger the flow of western credits, that represent the only reason it avoids an economic abyss it may never arise from.

    How could WW3 be measured against historical precedent?

    There isn't any.

    Syria Conflict Could Turn into another World War, Warns Vatican

    It's the Vatican.

    Assad could update his FB status with a selfie of him straddling a chemical weapon with a message of " Dear FSA, you are soooo ****ed. LOL.Kind regards, Basher" painted on the side. They would still advocate a diplomatic resolution and preach about unintended consequences of military action.

    That is the only reason why the Syria regime change project should be halted. If it spirals to WW3, well then by all means, fvck it!! It will have to wait for a while!

    Why have not any negotiations taken place. Serbia's president Milloschevich was conducting atrocities on the ground with his army while also being in negotiations with the west. I mean we have spoken to criminals before. Why not now also?
