    It means Catholics must continue to pray and lead good lives and ask God for peace in the world. Remember the message at Fatima: Pray the rosary and offer sacrifices so peace will reign in the world.

    "Largest ever fleet of warships mustered in Persian Gulf"

    I hope they mean the most ships amassed in the Gulf and not the largest fleet EVER because the D-Day Armada was roughly 5,000 warships/transports/landing craft ... far more than this one. Due to technology you can reasonably argue this as the most powerful fleet ever.

    "Still, Israel cannot tolerate a nuclear armed Iran. The Islamic Republic represents an existential threat to the Jewish nation as Iran's leaders have repeatedly called for the destruction of Israel and their special forces have trained and supported terrorist strikes on the country. "

    The awkward moment when Israel has one of the world's largest stockpile of nuclear weapons and is calling for the destruction of Iran. Furthermore, the Israelis have been assassinating Iranian nationals in and around the country. It's hard to tell who truly poses the existential threat to who.

    And as to the extent of the Iranian nuclear program, I need only quote the head of the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency, the multi-national organization that has been conducting the investigations of Iran's nuclear program), "We have information that there has been maybe some studies about possible weaponization. That's why we have said that we cannot give Iran a pass right now, because there is still a lot of question marks ... . But have we seen Iran having the nuclear material that can readily be used into a weapon? No. Have we seen an active weaponization program? No."
