nekom: Isn't this a bit unprecedented? I mean sure Popes of old have raised armies themselves but has any modern Pope actually called for an attack on any group?
Marcus Aurelius: If only we could install a dictator in Iraq that would hold the country together in a secular fashion and keep order and make the trains oil tankers run on time...

jso2897: Oh, cool. the Pope calling foe a Crusade.This never ends badly.
CruJones: I can't really see anyone thinking we should let them just keep raping, torturing and beheading innocent people, pope or not. It's not like a nice fireside chat is going to stop them.
Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: Fatwah! versus Bull!Who will win?It's the Sword versus the Rock!Also appearing the All Star Monster Truck Tour's Jihadi Jalopy and the Jody's MRAP Sex Machine!!!
texdent: Even the Pope is sick of their shiat.
washington-babylon: What? You just expected a Jesuit pope to take the wholesale slaughter and abuse of one of the oldest christian communities in the world sitting down? It's about time people remembered that the whole passive "pacifist christian" movement is a very recent historical invention.
Brew78: But, but.. the CRUUUUSAAAAAAAAAAAAAADESSSSSSssssssssss!!1!!11!one! Obviously his point is invalid!To that, I say "Shut up, Susan." as Dr. Cox would.Seriously, this IS the most despicably barbaric group this planet has seen in awhile.I was about to liken the current situation to events in Cambodia, but I'm not sure if they ever beheaded children and mounted their heads on pikes as a means to intimidate their enemy.
Jiro Dreams Of McRibs: jso2897: Oh, cool. the Pope calling foe a Crusade.This never ends badly.Yep. It's amazing how an enlightened man of God can call for a crusade. He's gonna screw this up real bad if billions of Catholics suddenly believe it's God's will to go and slaughter first ISIS then their supporters then anyone who won't eat pork then Methodists...Once you start justifying slaughter all you see is necks. Necks everywhere.
