Even though it's not always the United States duty, I think someone has to stand up and it seems the U.S. is more willing than others. In the Rwandan genocide the Hutu primarily used machetes to commit mass murder and seemingly any military could have stopped them by intervening which could have saved thousands yet no one directly attempted to stop the Hutu.

There was a genocide convention in 1948 that decided that as of 1951 all countries that agreed to the terms have to abide by them. The terms were that if a particular conflict was officially recognized that it is also recognized as a crime and that all countries that ratified this must intervene. The US is one of those countries.

I'm new to this site so I'm not entirely sure how the system works but I guess Round 1 would be opening arguments, Round 2 is rebuttal or questioning the other side and Round 3 is closing arguments. You can use any evidence you see fit. I'm not sure what else should be included as of now
