|Message||The biggest one is to define aggression. This could change the entire bill.|
We also need to clarify what sorts of aggression we will respond to. If a nation declares that it is going to invade us, do we attempt to bomb them en-route?
Things like that.

|Message||It's a general declaration of principle. We're prepared to leave such things to be judged at the time, as a matter of interpretation. This merely renounces any first-strike intentions.|

|Message||I would still like it clarified to have the force of law. Rather than a simple "general declaration of principle"|
