The debate we're having is over a basic question: should the U.S. government be able to purchase the services of privately sourced military forces (PMFs) and deploy them abroad? In order to determine this, we'll have to start with a definition of PMFs: "firms offering se...

Gun Control

TheTraitorToTyranny
Amedexyius

Gun control is a completely unnecessary and near-idiotic idea promoted by the current left wing politicians, both in office domestically, and abroad. In the wake of the shooting of a gay bar in Orlando, it is necessary for members of LGBTQ to take action, and to take the responsibility of defending themselves into their own hands. Already, groups have been formed nationwide dedicated to this idea. Not only should members of the LGBTQ community defend themselves, but the general American public s...

The Chechen Wars Were a Necessity for Russian National Stability & Security

Amedexyius

This debate is impossible to accept, if you want to participate, you must message me.There was a lack of response to my ultra-heavy challenge of the 3 debates I posted last time, so I edited it to compose the primary point and biggest questions of the Chechen Wars. I only recommend to accept this challenge if you have prior knowledge or are studious in Russian contemporary history and Russian politics.

I think there are lots of problems...
