Buckle up, kids. Here we go again.

Here’s what Pope Francis actually said:

“In these cases, where there is an unjust aggression, I can only say that it is licit to stop the unjust aggressor,” Francis said. “I underscore the verb ‘stop.’ I’m not saying ‘bomb’ or ‘make war,’ just ‘stop.’ And the means that can be used to stop them must be evaluated.”

But, he said, in history, such “excuses” to stop an unjust aggression have been used by world powers to justify a “war of conquest” in which an entire people have been taken over.

“One nation alone cannot judge how you stop this, how you stop an unjust aggressor,” he said, apparently referring to the United States. “After World War II, the idea of the United Nations came about: It’s there that you must discuss ‘Is there an unjust aggression? It seems so. How should we stop it?’ Just this. Nothing more.”

Facts are hard, so it’s not all that surprising that Vox would get this wrong. Also not surprising? This:

Fisher is nothing if not reliably hacktastic.

Oh, snap! It may be harsh, but it’s most definitely accurate.

Yeah, but rational people don’t work for Vox.

Pretty much.

And Vox’s stellar record of journalistic integrity continues apace.
