National Security Strategy 2010 May 27, 2010

Release of the 2010 National Security Strategy

The White House today released the 2010 National Security Strategy which contains strong language on the potential need to use military means to prevent and respond to genocide and mass atrocities.

“The United States is committed to working with our allies, and to strengthening our own internal capabilities, in order to ensure that the United States and the international community are proactively engaged in a strategic effort to prevent mass atrocities and genocide. In the event that prevention fails, the United States will work both multilaterally and bilaterally to mobilize diplomatic, humanitarian, financial, and—in certain instances—military means to prevent and respond to genocide and mass atrocities.” (page 48) (emphasis added)
