Terrorism NC I negate, The value is morality as prescribed by the resolution Report, available at http://www.milkeninstitute.org/pdf/econ_impact_terrorism.pdf Economic sanctions offer the ability to fight terrorists, Crimm in ’04 writes: A powerful weapon in the U.S. government's financial war on terrorism is the use of economic sanctions against terrorists, terrorist groups, and their private sponsors. The discretionary power to impose economic sanctions during war, as well as during times of peace upon the declaration of a national emergency, has long resided with the President of the United States. The standard is thus the Protection of rights because the resolution necessitates a governmental actor. And, the primary obligation of a government is to protect its citizens. Also, foreign policy objectives mandate a governmental actor. Since a government tries to protect the most rights of its citizens, it is nonsensical to justify citizen-citizen relations. 1) Side-constraints are meaningless without tangible benefits. My right to free speech means nothing if I am not in the proper physical state to exercise it, so ensuring basic needs always comes before side constraints. 2) Claims to inviolability are circular since deontologists justify inviolability for the sake of inviolability. Inviolability is non-unique since people have been violated already. 3) Deontology is paradoxical because if people’s rights are valuable, then more respect for rights bears a greater moral value. My thesis is that economic sanctions are key to solving terrorism. Terrorist attacks pose a direct threat to civilians, which is unacceptable, James Barth et a l Senior Fellow at the Milken Institute writes, James R.
