Pope denounces the US-led attack

By Globe Staff and Wires, 3/23/2003

Pope John Paul II yesterday denounced the war against Iraq as threatening the ''fate of humanity'' in his first public comments on the US-led attacks. ''When war, as in these days in Iraq, threatens the fate of humanity, it is ever more urgent to proclaim, with a strong and decisive voice, that only peace is the road to follow to construct a more just and united society,'' John Paul said. ''Violence and arms can never resolve the problems of men.'' The pontiff said that peace is ''a gift of God and a humble and constant achievement by men.'' He made his remarks yesterday in an address at the Vatican to members of an Italian religious television channel, Telepace. (AP)
