Could Pope Francis save us from World War 3 with the Middle East?
Pope Francis may be our only hope to stop this conflict.
"Pope Francis urged the Group of 20 leaders on Thursday to abandon the "futile pursuit" of a military solution in Syria as the Vatican laid out its case for a negotiated settlement that guarantees rights for all Syrians, including minority Christians."
I pray in Jesus' name. Amen

It would be simple.
People would just have to listen to him and do what he teaches.

The Pope has no real power and the church only partially controls the people that follow it. The big thing you have to look at is who is the Pope going to influence? In Syria no one cares. If you are looking at WW3 as the USA against China and/or Russia the Pope may have some influence in USA but no where else.

It is fully possible for WW3 to be started in the Middle East, and i think if anyone is trying to stop this war for the right reasons, its the pope.

the church has been wrong on everything for 2000 years except when it reversed itself and agreed that the earth orbited the sun, and that evolution was a scientific fact. the new pope seems like a good guy, but he's wrong about the existence of god. although he probably knows there is no god because he seems fairly intelligent.

WWIII will not be caused by the M.E.
It's a useless piece of real estate with minor power and outdated technology.
