Representative Joe Wilson

Representing the 2nd District of South Carolina

Foreign Affairs

As members of a global community, the United States and all nations of the world have much to learn from each other.  Our nation has a proud history of leading the world in times of peace and times of war.  We have formed coalitions of nations to depose tyrannical dictators that threatened the freedoms and safety of our citizens and allies.  Together with our friends we have drawn attention to humanitarian crises and worked to improve the quality of life in those parts of the world that live in poverty and turmoil.

As a member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, I have the privilege to help address the issues facing our relationships with nations around the world.  As one of only a few members of Congress to serve on both the Foreign Affairs Committee and the Armed Services Committee, I have the unique opportunity to contribute to our national dialogue from a military as well as a diplomatic perspective.  An open and candid discussion among friendly nations and a clear and consistent message to unfriendly nations will ensure the safety and prosperity of the United States.
