Taking his talking points from Erdogan: Pope hits out at the West for selling chemical weapons to Syria – such weapons last sold in the Cold War era

Pope Francis has condemned the West for selling chemical weapons responsible for thousands of civilian deaths to Syria.

Returning from a three-day trip to Turkey the pope said the Middle East state did not have the ability to manufacture the chemical weapons that were deployed against Syrian civilians last year, adding they must have been supplied them by its ‘accusers’.

Nerve agent Sarin, described by chemical weapons experts as one of the ‘deadliest agents known to man’, has been linked to several attacks during the three-year civil war in Syria…

The West indeed sold chemical weapons, but it was during the Cold War era, although precursor chemicals have been unwittingly sold recently.

I can see where this Erdogan-led campaign is heading: support Sunnis in Syria, even if they are terrorists.  Christians lived unmolested under Assad, who will now be attacked by the Pope to please Erdogan.

    I believe the Book of Revelation had something to say about the coming of a one world religion.

    It wasn’t us!
    We have hated Syria since forever.
    That would be the Europeans, Chinese, and the Soviets/Russians.
    This pope is an imbecile.

    Uh, just checking, but the Pope *is* supposed to be a Christian, right?

      He thinks he’s Oscar Romero.

    Despite the presumed authority of the SNIE cited, Syria has been running its own chemical weapons program since the 70s.

    He is sounding more and more like an Islamic cleric than the head of the Catholic Church.
