US: Archdiocese for the Military

Christopher Jones says: "I agree that an institutional link between the US military and the Roman Catholic church is worrisome, but for different reasons: does it mean that the Pope could call on US armed intervention to back up the Swiss Guard and safeguard the Vatican from Italian attack?"
