Ask forgiveness

In Bolivia, Pope Francis “humbly asks forgiveness for crimes committed against the native peoples during the so-called conquest of America”.

Will he likewise ask forgiveness from the “native peoples” of the Falkland Islands for his fellow countrymen’s crimes in 1982 – and excommunicate his co-religionists who refuse to rule out similar future action?
