Thanks to our opponents, Team Thrawn, for engaging in this, the second round of the Debate Champions League, with us. We apologize for the delay in the posting, and look forward to a great debate on an interesting topic. 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...

What is he babbling about that God doesn't exist? As you can see the sun is seen as a God [0] and there are lots and lots of stars, also known as Gods. [1] I don't get it, why would people doubt the existence of the stars? We couldn't see without them, there wouldn't be any heat. Definition of God. "4. One...
