Scott Kleeb on Foreign Policy

Democratic Challenger


Stop genocide in Darfur

Stop genocide in Darfur: After six years of senseless violence that led to the deaths of roughly 400,000 Sudanese and the displacement of more than 2.5 million Darfurians, it is long past time to end the genocide in Darfur. Scott Kleeb believes that ending the atrocities in Darfur is not just the Sudan's, or Africa's, problem, but the world's problem. The US should ensure that a multinational peacekeeping force can enter, and affect change, in Darfur.

Strength comes not just from military; build partnerships

Q: What steps would you recommend the next President take to rebuild our global reputation and our relationships with our allies?

A: A recognition that our strength comes not just from our military and economic might, but also from our values and our principles that we stand on, and those things that we choose to lead on. First and foremost, the next president should take a very lengthy trip to all of our allies and reassure them that we have turned the page in this country: that the era of go-it-alone diplomacy is over. That our approach of going it alone without regard to wanting to have people standing next to us, wanting to have the help of our allies, wanting to have their assurances that they will be with us, and that we will work together to build a world that is safer and freer, and more in line with those things, whether it's human rights, labor rights, environmental standards, those things that we want partners in. Partners make us stronger. We need partners.

Continue to see Israel's security as connected to our own

We must continue to support our longtime ally in the Middle East, the only functioning and robust democracy in the region. And we must continue to see Israel's security as connected to our own. To that end, we must continue to support Israel's right to self-defense not only against potentially hostile states but also against Hezbollah. Our support must not only be diplomatic but must also continue our foreign aid packages involving both military and economic assistance.
