I would like to prove that the U.S interests are not being threatened by Russia's development over the years.So in this round i feel it is my obligation to prove that Russia is not a threat as of right now. Your obligation i believe is to prove that russia is a direct threat and thus would need to prove CBA(cost benefit analysis) you would need to prove why they are more of a threat to our interests, than a benefit if anything at all.

I still believe Russia is not a threat to U.S interests and stand firm on this topic. I'd like to see if my opponents chooses to debate me or not.

You should stick to russia saying russia alone is a threat. Of course you would like to say all states would be a good debate but that would just make it easier for you debate russia only and we have a debate.

I wonder, why did you challenge me to this debate? I've made no commentary on Russia.
I'll accept this debate if you want, but my argument will hinge on the idea that ALL states threaten our interests. If you would prefer a more standard argument (Russians are teh evil, Putin is a KGB thug who plots to take over the world, whatever), then I'll decline so you can choose someone more suited to make that argument.
