A conversion


Finally realizing appeasement doesn't work; preaching love doesn't work, a Catholic official has announced "We have entered the Fourth World War."  The war is on terrorism. And furthermore, because it is so pervasive and so unpredictable "Every state has to put in place the best possible policing method and this, naturally, might affect some personal freedoms. States have to carry out a defensive policy,"  added the official, Cardinal Renato Martino, head of the Vatican's Council for Justice and Peace.
