RESOLVED: The United States should expand the number of Missle Defense Systems in Eastern Europe.

I will be arguing for the Con side of this debate.

It is a solid topic. Debatable. It deals with foreign policy, a subject that I have not seen debated often on this site.

1st Round will be used ONLY to ask any clarifications questions before the debate begins. Please do NOT post any arguments in the 1st round, as to ensure everyone has the same number of posts. I am not posting so that people will join the debate without knowing any of my arguments. I would like someone to join purely because they enjoy the topic, not because they believe they can beat me.

Pro

As opposed to expanding their size, or capability, or systems in Western Europe, or outside of Europe, or other types of defense systems, or offensive systems, or as opposed to NATO or any other treaty alliance.

I will be arguing both sides of the issue

(2) A negative may choose a third option and argue both alternatives provided by the resolution.

Negative meaning Challenger, not necessarily Con.

as permitted by the LD rules.

which are designed to protect those taking indefensible alternatives which should not happen if the debate topic is chosen with a little more care.

"It is a solid topic. Debatable. It deals with foreign policy, a subject that I have not seen debated often on this site."

It is a stupid topic. The fact the my opponent believes it is debatable when it is not just proves lack of thought on the subject of foreign policy. That is our government's policy also. Our government believes that the best policy is to be a bully.

World War is waiting to happen. Keep up the stupidity and it will.

So you see Kosovo's independence was not about Kosovo at all.
Now you know a little about current events that you didn't before.
Go back to your video games.

Missiles pointed at Russia and all they can talk about is the PX

Well I know the rest of the world isn't that stupid. Is it just US?

And I will argue that we should expand in Eastern Europe because that would be less harmful than Central Asia.

In fact you can of course argue that we should expand in Central Asia instead if you think that is a good idea. It is certainly strategic.

You should have to do some research before starting debates that you don't even know are stupid.

And don't get me started on the Middle East.

Yes please take pro. It is indefensible.

Sorry for the default. No more 24-hour debates please. My only hope is to argue that we cannot physically do any more than we are already doing.
"My debates" should give you the time remaining instead of time since.
No it is not debatable. It is a stupid topic.
