Pope deplores war

Pope John Paul, in his first public comment on the outbreak of hostilities in Iraq, said on Saturday the war threatened the whole of humanity, and that weapons could never solve mankind's problems."When war, like the one now in Iraq, threatens the fate of humanity, it is even more urgent for us to proclaim, with a firm and decisive voice, that only peace is the way of building a more just and caring society," he said.The Pope, in a speech to employees of Catholic television station Telepace, added: "Violence and weapons can never resolve the problems of man."
