house Bill H.R. 2116

Should the U.S. Have a 10-Year Strategy for Monitoring & Helping Fragile Countries?

Argument in favor

Global violence has high human and economic costs, leading to the loss of lives and economic output. Addressing it requires interagency within the U.S. and cooperation with international partners in order to develop effective strategies — which this bill enables.

If we want oppressed people to stop coming to our southern borders we need to do more to make their lives livable where they are.

While I would support the IDEA of helping fragile countries and allocating funds to do so, I am concerned that our current legislative and executive branch occupants would be unable to resist interference in those countries if a way to financially and strategically profit from interference in their national autonomy. Any bill I would actually support would have to include VERY SPECIFIC restrictions on military intervention and steps requiring the request of such assistance by a referendum from the people of that country.

Argument opposed

USAID, the State Department, and DOD engage on very different issues in each country they’re present in, so interagency coordination of violence reduction efforts may not be fruitful. Rather than spending additional money to coordinate these agencies’ work, the government should simply fund them as needed to achieve anti-violence objectives globally. Additionally, the U.S. and other wealthy nations don’t have a good track record on helping fragile states — so perhaps the U.S. should reconsider whether it should even be intervening in fragile states in the first place.

America Must get our own house in order. We have no money for other nations.

STOP SPENDING OUR MONEY! Congress doesn't seem to care enough to deal with infrastructure, the border and health care but will give money to foreign nations. SMH! Trump hate and resistance to important issues will NOT be enough to get you re-elected.

    Yes, yes, yes! This is the one best way, as far as I can see, to help reduce human trafficking, violence, and the need for people to flee their own countries. It’s just not that easy for most people to leave where they were born and raised. But, if there’s no hope for the future then why not leave and look for a future elsewhere.This is the way we can help, the way we can give them hope for a brighter future in their own country.It’s a great idea! it’s a win win situation for people in other countries and for the United States.

    Yes. And I should be the writer of the bill. “Stop toppling foreign governments and fighting proxy wars” the end.

    Like it or not, we live in a global community and increasingly so. We actually help ourselves by helping to ensure a stable world. Isolationism is as outdated as dialup internet.

    We can develop a strategy to help fragile countries. I sincerely doubt that strategy will remain in place while Mr. I have no foreign policy and wouldn’t know diplomacy if it hit me in the face is in office. Interesting this is only to last 10 years. A strategy like this should not be sunsetted if it is to bring about stability.

    It is important for us to maintain good connections with these poor and unstable countries otherwise they fall for the rhetoric of communism, socialism or Islamic extremism.

    YES!!! This is why we have so many people knocking at our door. Iif we actually attacked the problem from the root of it there would be many less asking to get in. Good Grief. Those who are so nasty about people trying to LIVE - not just buy a fancy truck or the backyard pool or any other non necessary items Americans Think they must have!!! GOOD GRIEF. HELPING COUNTRIES WHICH NEED HELP helps the people stay where they live.

    For those that have travelled out of this country and taken the pulse of the people outside the US, we are regarded as a rich, spoiled nation who’s responsibility it is to help the rest of the “free world”. If we don’t reach out with a helping hand, those people are easy to become resentful, thus ripe for leaders with opposing views. We don’t need more enemies, or even bad press throughout the world. This is the cost of being a superpower.
