I remember reading this article when it first came out. Thanks for reposting it.
"With these truths in mind, this most holy synod makes its own the condemnations of total war already pronounced by recent popes, and issues the following declaration:
"Any act of war aimed indiscriminately at the destruction of entire cities of extensive areas along with their population is a crime against God and man himself. It merits unequivocal and unhesitating condemnation."
The Council condemned city = target bombing in the same terms that it condemned abortion and infanticide, and for the same reason: because they are the direct, deliberate destruction of innocent human life, and thus are an abomination in the eyes of God.
