I am surprised if everyone can't see this problem with this view. Is it unusual that a foreign occupying force meets resistance? Unpopular governments, whether or not supplied by the US, tend to fall. The exception, of course, is the US government. I hope someday people wake up and learn to either cooperate with each other in a just and egalitarian manner, or learn to mind their own business.
Since when has the Catholic church had official stances on historical issues? Why aren't members of the church allowed to hold whatever opinions or beliefs they wish as long as they don't collide with the church teachings? Since when does disbelief of a questionable historical doctrine amoung to heresy? I think political correctness is insanity.
