Pope's quotes: 'I speak of real war'

A quote from Pope Francis:

"I would like to say just one word to be clear. When I speak of war, I speak of real war, not of a war of religion, no. There is war for interests, there is war for money, there is war for the resources of nature, there is war for the domination of peoples: this is war. Someone may think: 'He is talking about a war of religion.' No. All the religions, we want peace. Others want war. Do you understand?"
