For far too long U.S foreign policy has been outside of international law, destabilized vulnerable nations, blown up the national debt and has cost U.S tax payers trillions of dollars. By the end of 2017 the U.S taxpayers will have spent close to $5 trillion on the War On Terror. The war in Afghanistan alone has lasted over 15 years and it remains a hot bed for terrorist organizations. Terrorism internationally is strengthened by our aggressive foreign policy. We must promote a foreign policy that prioritizes human rights, sensible monetary responsibility and the safety of Americans and human beings around the world.
I propose that the United States adopts a foreign policy congruent with international law. This will include ending the illegal drone assassination program, ending military support for any nation in violation of international human rights laws, banning the use of depleted uranium in military weapons, working with foreign powers towards a multi-lateral reduction of nuclear weapons and ending the War On Terror.
The United States is the greatest country on Earth. It’s time that our foreign policy reflects that. We need a foreign policy that promotes safety, stability and human rights.
