house Bill H.R. 3030

Should Preventing Genocide & Other Atrocities be a Core U.S. National Security Interest?

Argument in favor

Genocide and other mass atrocity crimes have brought incomparable suffering to people around the world, and as a world-leader the U.S. should do all it can to ensure that crimes against humanity like the Holocaust never happen again.

Let's start with the US. Separating families, reassigning children, and incarceration of specific races all count as UN asserted forms of genocide. Better get working on fixing that.

Yes, and the first thing that the DNI should recommend is that U.S. stop selling weapons to Saudi Arabia which the Saudis are using to commit atrocities against civilians in Yemen!

I hope the first one we work on is that of indigenous Americans. Then that of the Palestinians. I’m a voter in Ohio’s 12th congressional district and I support this bill.

Argument opposed

While it’s important to prevent genocide and other mass atrocity crimes around the world, it shouldn’t be a formal part of America’s core national security interests of considered a moral responsibility for the nation.

Earlier it was a bill to express something, now it’s a bill to state something. Let me express my thoughts once again with this statement. Republicans quit wasting time and money with useless bills trying to prove you’re relevant. You want to impress me, do something about Trump.

Instead of trying to save the world against every aspect there is out there. Look within, we have many troubles here. I am against genocide of any type but why do we need another paid committees? Spend some of that here on our own issues.

    There is no cause more noble and justified than preventing mass human suffering. Prevention doesn’t make the news or generate short-term political wins, but history is unkind to those who choose to do nothing.

    Yes, we should work to prevent genocide at home, and then abroad.

    How could anyone think that we shouldn't make genocide and war crimes, of which we as a country are massively guilty , a part of our core national security ? When we see evil and don't react except to use it as an excuse to invade, usually for oil and not human lives, we make enemies around the world. It's time. For once, fr once can't we do the right thing on the world stage?

    How insulting. A bill named after a Holocaust survivor. While this traitor in chief sets up camps to detain and separate imigrant families indefinitely. Compassion starts at home and the toddler in chief is a treasonist that has no compassion for anyone

    Useless pandering from the exact sort of spineless bootlickers that "just followed orders," in WWII. The Repiblicans have been aiding and abetting the rise of fascism and Nazism in America and have almost led us up to the point of no return. Find your courage, stand up and do the right thing.

    Call it ‘policing the world’ if you must, but preventing international atrocities, especially those stemming from tyrannical/dictatorial rule, is in our best interest; by putting an end to and preventing the spreading of oppression we ensure our own national security in that we don’t allow the power and influence of such rule from spreading.
