Released in December, the image is a warning against every conflict and a condemnation of todays piecemeal Third World War
The fruit of war.... To the journalists who accompany him on his flight from Fiumicino to Santiago de Chile, the first stop of his apostolic journey to Chile and Peru, the Pope wanted to distribute the photo of the child who, after the atomic bombardment of Nagasaki, in 1945, is carrying his dead brother on his shoulders to a crematorium.
A brutal image taken by American photographer Joseph Roger O Donnell, that the Pope already wanted to be printed and distributed at end of this year. His bitter caption were the words, The fruit of war. Followed by another caption in Spanish that emphasized the despair of the child in his gesture of biting the lips that ooze blood. Finally, his signature: Franciscus.

I suppose he could not find any of the rape of Nanking or of Japanese beheading American POWs.
Guess no pictures of Chinese children after the Rape of Nanking were available.
Hes right. It was the fruit of war - a war fought by the Japanese without mercy for its enemies. Nevertheless, it was all very tragic.
Those two bombs saved the lives of Tens. Of. Millions. of Japanese.
When is Dope Francis going to show starving pictures of children in Venezuela?
How about a picture of someone beheaded by ISIS?
The pope should know that war is punishment for sin... he should also know that the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki saved many lives. Francis should be talking about returning people to the teachings of Jesus not worrying about their carbon footprints.
One incredibly stupid man, this “Pope”.
Never. He only hates (and yes, hates) Christians and freedom. He is indwelt. I dont use that term lightly, but thats the only way someone who does not truly believe and advocates on behalf of monsters could become Pope. I truly believe he is an anti-Pope.
False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist.
But then, what about the many deaths, OF CHRISTIANS AND JEWS, alike, that Popes before him caused, because they sent armies on Crusades. How about the Crusade whose "soldiers" were just composed of children?
It also saved Japan from a Civil War between Soviet-Occupied Japan and US-Occupied Japan.
Or any ISIS crucifixions
For those that dont know the term indwelt, it basically means possessed with consent.
“One incredibly stupid man, this Pope.”
He’s a hardcore Marxist; an extreme leftist.
Hand him a pic of a pedophile priest in return.
The war pic that has been embedded in my mind for YEARS is the baby sitting,crying, near the railroad tracks in Nanking.
Of course the USA didn’t cause that so it doesn’t fit into the Pope’s agenda.
No kidding Jack!
Did we ( and his unHoliness) know the Japaese had in Manchuria secretly perfected a bio warfare bomb capable of delivering millions of plague infested fleas ( their bio weapons were tested on our POWs and were field tested for effectiveness against Chinese cities and killed 250,000 people) and their plan was to use it against California? All they lacked was a long range delivery platform which they were only months from achieving
Thanks History Channel “Secrets of the Axis”
Btw does the ditzy Pope know that even God had to use mass destruction on occasion to stop great evil? Ask Noah , the Pharaoh of Egypt, and the citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah
