Wikileaks is a threat to US National Security

Thanks to my opponent for agreeing to debate this with me :) I affirm the resolution that Wikileaks IS a threat to the United States' national security. Before starting my case, I'd like to define a few key terms: Threat is defined as "declaration of an intention or a determination to inflict harm on another" National Security is the requirement to maintain the survival of the nation-state through the use of economic, military and political power and the exercise of diplomacy. National S...

CiRrK

We can't begin to make progress if we continue to shut out countries that could be helpful. With the current situation in the Middle East, is this a good time to begin to rebuild relations? Particularly with the idea that we may be facing new governments that may or may not support us? Is this a good time to in essence begin anew?...

Should marijuana be legalized?

kboudreau

The legalization of marijuana has been and always will be a controversial issue in the United States. Many people argue that it is harmful to your health, dangerous and addictive, but isn't that exactly what alcohol and tobacco are and they are legal. We would like to argue that minus the fallacies, there's no real reason why marijuana should be illegal. In the United States you need to be at least twenty-one to purchase alcohol, and nineteen to purchase tobacco. In one year tobacco has caused 4...

Osama's dead but what does that really mean?

"Yay Osama's dead" I have been seeing a lot of this knidove thing on social networks and the news stations that I watch and even calls to pull out of places like Afghanistan in the wake of this unfortunately, we're not there to kill one person. Whether you believe that we are there for oil, to find WMDs, to stamp out terrorism, to fight a fight that was brought to our shores as the US president said, to bright stability to the region or just to control it. I think we can all agree that killing O...

Personally, as a future member of the journalism industry and the overall media, I know that censorship compromises freedom of speech and freedom of press. We are the life line of this country, don't we have the right to know, no matter the circumstances?...

Do you think Korea should stop launching leaflets to North?

hellocat
blameworthy

Kim Jong-un is not afraid of isolation in the international community nor is he afraid of food shortages. The only thing he fears is the collapse of his dictatorship. When North Korean activists planned to launch balloons carrying 200,000 propaganda leaflets across the heavily militarized border, North Korea responded by threatening to launch a merciless military strike against the anti-North Korean activists. Many of you might think that the leaflets are mere paper, but at the moment, it is...
