George Allen on Foreign Policy

Republican Senate Challenger


End foreign aid to Egypt until they join War on Terror

On foreign policy, Kaine noted that U.S. military and Virginia National Guard forces don't have to deploy as often for the war on terror, thanks to past successes against Al-Qaeda and other terror linked groups. Kaine then attacked the House budget proposal which cut money for embassy security, and linked it to Rep. Paul Ryan, the Republican Vice-Presidential nominee.

Allen noted that the attacked on U.S. embassies last month are examples of why sequestration is dangerous. Allen also singled out U.S. foreign aid for Egypt, saying he did not think a dollar should be sent there until the country's leaders prove they're going to support the ongoing effort against terror.

Oppose foreign treaties that jeopardize our sovereignty

George Allen has actively worked against foreign treaties that jeopardize our sovereignty, such as the Kyoto Treaty, Law of the Sea Treaty, and CEDAW that would attempt to make international laws and treaties superior to the laws of our nation and States Foreign treaties that jeopardize or abrogate the sovereignty of the US or commit this nation to unilateral action that will harm individuals and families, put our businesses at a competitive disadvantage with other countries, or that violate our Constitution and laws must be actively opposed.

In the Senate, he fought against CEDAW, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination. Parts of CEDAW called for legalized prostitution, would undermine laws that protect families, such as Parental Notification laws, and other policies that conflict with the laws of our own land. George Allen also does not support US funding and involvement in the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child.
