Yes now a puppet can be implanted that will tow the line for the american government and israel.As we all know the pope was basically forced to resign because he has been outspoken about the terrorist actions of the american government and israel lately.The new pope will be someone to turn off just like most intelligent people do when the american media comes on.

No - that's not it. He's just afraid his past coverups are going to be exposed, and they will. He can't face that.

He was silent Pope, like poodle of usa, western europe. Man without charisma and maybe he was good theologist, but not very good Pope. he shouldn´t take this function, it was to important to place such man in such hard times. It sjhould be somebody with open mind.
And taking evident war criminal and genocide like blair to Catholic Church, it was really completely out of mind.
