Akhenaten

Con

The U.S. is a responsible democratic country in relative terms to other less democratic, communist and autocratic countries.
Just as the Roman Empire transformed Europe into a more civilized and cohesive unit of countries; America has carried on this moral tradition to create a better world.
The threat of nuclear annihilation has proved to be an effective deterrent to countries like Russia, North Korea and China.
These countries have been very quiet since America has had the capacity to blow these countries off the world map in a few short hours. Thus, nuclear weapons are a really effective means of promoting peace and harmony throughout the world.

Countries like Iraq and Afghanistan need to come into the modern age and dispel their primitive ways. These countries hold key resources and hold strategic value in the securing of oil resources. America needs to keep a tight rein on these countries; otherwise countries like Russia and China would step in and take control.

i love debating. My opponent conceded. Vote for me!
Akhenaten

Con

I have put forward my opinion on this matter, whereas my opponent hasn't put forward his opinion. Thus, my opponent really hates debating and is only here to cause trouble. His devil avatar is a good indication of his intentions. Vote 1 Akhey!

7 points to Con (Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: Rule Violation & Concession

[*Reason for non-removal*] Voters are allowed to intepret rule violations as full losses, and Con did clearly concede in R2. Both can trump the lack of arguments.
