Pope’s quotes: Unjust aggressor

A quote from Pope Francis:

“In these cases, where there is an unjust aggression, I can only say that it is licit to stop the unjust aggressor. I emphasize the word: ‘stop.’ I’m not saying drop bombs, make war, but stop the aggressor. The means used to stop him would have to evaluated.”
