house Bill H.R. 6475

Should Congress Consider Designating Russia as a State Sponsor of Terrorism?

Argument in favor

Russian transgressions against international norms are only increasing in their boldness and frequency. The U.S. needs to take a harder stance against Russian aggression, and declaring Russia a state sponsor of terrorism opens up more avenues to respond with sanctions.

Yes. Russia is the major resource of arms for Syria and the reason why Assad has been able to keep up the aggression against his own people for the last ten years. Looking at the children with no arms and legs and seeing how determined the Syrian people are to keep up this fight against this horrific dictator is enough to call Russia a source of terrorism. Putin has earned it.

THE TRAITOR-IN-CHIEF HAS TRIED TO MAKE EVERY OTHER COUNTRY BUT RUSSIA OUR ENEMY! RUSSIA IS NOT OUR FRIEND, IT IS TRUMP'S MASTER AND WE NEED TO GET AWAY FROM THAT! THE TRAITOR-IN-CHIEF EVEN VETOED THE LAST GROUP OF SANCTIONS ON RUSSIA FOR THE ELECTION INTERFERENCE THAT PUT HIM IN OFFICE! IF THIS IS PASSED, HE'LL VETO THIS TOO, BUT THAT JUST SHOWS US EVEN MORE THAT HE TRULY IS THE TRAITOR-IN-CHIEF AND SHOULD NOT BE OUR PRESIDENT!

Argument opposed

Declaring Russia a state sponsor of terror escalates hostilities against a major world power, and jeopardizes the few ongoing dialogues that the U.S. still has with Russia. There is little evidence to suggest that putting Russia on the state sponsors of terrorism list will do much to deter their aggression.

It seems that our politicians in Washington desperately want all-out military conflict with Russia, a nuclear-armed state. Vladimir Putin is a loathsome individual, but this is over the top. If we’re going to label Russia a state-sponsor of terrorism then we should also give that label to a horrific regime like Saudi Arabia.

Okay let’s all relax here. Russia is very aggressive and yes they are seeking to take over their neighbors but declaring it a State Sponsor of Terrorism? Are you serious? There’s a line.

    If they are not designated as terrorists now then they should be as a country that has infiltrated the presidency and our ideology. They are terrorists and Sponsor terrorism World wide - so the answer is Absolutely. Their biggest spy is Trumpsky! Who gave them and probably continues to give them our secrets as we bow before them on the world stage. Trump will never ever be called a Hero and is not fit to tie the shoes of Senator McCain .

    Absolutely. Russian government is a terrorist. They poison people outside of their country. They interfere in elections anywhere citizens vote. They are supporters of human rights violators. Can’t think of a better candidate for the designation.

    This should have been done years ago but I guess some folks were too busy getting paid off, getting loans, buying dossiers, peddling influence, hacking elections, trading sex for information and infiltrating the NRA to be bothered with such inconsequential things like preserving our democracy and stopping countries that sanction terrorism.
