On the Feast of the Triumph of the Cross, a priest at a church in NYC asked Mass goers to pray for President Obama and Prime Minister Cameron — that they quickly defeat ISIS.
Since September 11, 2001, American presidents have routinely acted militarily without Congressional approval and UN resolutions. The result has been a catastrophe for one nation after another.
With respect to ISIS, American foreign policy has fueled Muslim extremism (going back to the 1920’s) while kowtowing to Saudi Arabia. Any attacks on ISIS will likely be a sham that ultimately leads to the removal of Assad, the legitimate leader of Syria.
Perhaps a better prayer would be that the world community finds a way to disarm the U.S. (ISIS has American weapons), before it starts a nuclear war.
