Syria Conflict Could Turn into another World War, Warns Vatican - IBTimes UKAs Syrian President Bashar al-Assad warned any external intervention could trigger a regional war, Monsignor Mario Toso, the chief of the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, said the conflict "has all the ingredients to explode into a war of global dimensions.
"The solution to Syria's problems is not in armed intervention. Violence will not decrease and there is a risk of a conflagration that extends to other countries," Toso told Vatican radio.
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?
