HOT ROC The end of the Cold War created an opportunity for the United States to chart a new course in foreign affairs. Read the four options below and circle the one that best matches the direction you think is best. Then write a few sentences explaining your choice in your notebook. Option 1: The United States has fixed world problems long enough. It should severely cut back its foreign commitments and use the savings to make positive changes at home. The rest of the world can take care of itself. Option 2:The United States is now the wealthiest, most powerful nation on earth. It should use its power and wealth to make positive changes in the worldto stop wars, eliminate disease, and defeat corrupt or harsh governments. If the United States does not promote its ideals and stop evil, who will? Option 3: The United States should take this opportunity to strengthen international organizations like the United Nations. International cooperation is the key to solving global issues. Option 4: The United States should selectively use its power only when it wants to promote its own economic and security interests. It should be a global player but should only look out for itself.
Debate 1: How should the United States deal with ethnic cleansing and genocide? 1. Let someone else deal with it. Ethnic cleansing or genocide happening outside the United States is not an American problem. 2. Authorize military action when genocide or ethnic cleansing are identified. It should never happen; the United States is powerful enough to stop it. 3. Work with the UN to place pressure on the perpetrators. Send troops when necessary, but only under UN leadership or approval. 4. Only get involved in trying to stop ethnic cleansing or genocide if it has a negative affect on the U.S. economy or security.
Debate 2: How should the United States deal with human suffering caused by great catastrophes such as floods, famines, earthquakes, or disease? 1. Let nations closer to the problem deal with it. The United States cannot solve the whole worlds problems. 2. Only supply help to nations or people who are allied with the United States. 3. Work with the UN to fix these problems. That will encourage international solutions to international problems. 4. Work on our own and with others to eliminate all human suffering. People living in a wealthy country like the United States should do at least this
Debate 3: How should the United States deal with terrorism? 1. Invest heavily in the Department of Homeland Security, increase protection of our borders and find terrorist cells operating in the United States. 2. Do more to reduce the root causes of terrorism. The United States should invest in humanitarian relief in poorer nations and work to promote freedom. 3. Join an international effort coordinated and led by the UN. The United States should be a big player on an international team but should not try to shoulder most of the responsibility itself. 4. Invest in building up the American military and intelligence operations. Find terrorists in their own countries and defeat them there.
