The release of doves is another touchy-feely gesture that will definitely not enhance the chance for peace in this world.

Sorry, but as a Catholic, I just had to say it.

Maybe it was the “knock-out game,” bird style. What color were the birds?

In ancient Rome, this would have been called an omen.

While speaking at the window beforehand, Francis had appealed for peace in Ukraine, where anti-government protesters have died.

an omen -- from a crow and a seagull.

The hawks would have gotten the pigeons before trying for the crow or the seagull.

Definitely would be considered an omen. A crow and a seagull attacking the two doves in what seems to be a coordinated attack - interpretation would be the union of two disparate forces (thus the black crow and seagull ...very different birds) to attack peace/civilization/government/religion/the people.
