This is an armed force war debate, in which any country of your choice fights my nation (the United States) in a war. All firepower is judged solely from When you decide to accept this debate and choose your country, you must provide the PPP GDP of the country (this alone from Wikipedia), the defense budget, the oil reserves and all other data according the the Global Firepower website. Increase of the military budget is accepted. For manpower, i.e. active and reserve personnel, only Global Firepower information is allowed, and Wikipedia info is not (unless the GFP and Wikipedia info is the same). Movement from reserve to active personnel and vice versa is accepted. Citizens and military age population are not allowed to enter the army, and only active frontline and reserve personnel is accepted. Military alliances are not allowed, though diplomatic and military agreements and treaties are. No other countries, sects, militant groups et cetera are allowed (including religious revolts). Ballistic missiles and warheads (non-nuclear, non mass-destructive) are allowed, and all descriptions must be absolutely accurate. Violation of any of the rules results in instant loss and excommunication. The nation chosen MUST be a modern nation. The Soviet Union, and Third Reich Germany, for example, are not allowed. You must choose a weapon of mass destruction that your nation will be using in the first round; otherwise you can use no WMD. Radiological weapons, electronic warfare and digital warfare are not allowed. The allowed WMDs are:
Nuclear warhead: No more than 100-kilotons of TNT yield
Chemical weapon: No more than 15 parts-per-million
Biological weapon: Initial infection of no more 1000 people, though infection may spread.
Turns can range from a minimum of 1 day to a maximum of 45 days.
Round 1 is for acceptance only. I will make the first move in Round 2.
Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs) can be used only as a last resort, or if there is a great level of threat to your nation. The usage of the WMD must be described completely, with all accurate measurements (yield, range, parts-per-million, altitude, longitude, latitude etc).
At the beginning of the debate, you must specify your country, your WMD (with descriptions of size) and your number data.
All aspects of the debate must be accurate and realistic. Anything unrealistic or inaccurate will leave the action void. Breaking of the rules will leave that action void. No insults, cursing, inappropriate behavior or trolling. If any insults, cursing, inappropriate behavior or trolling is practiced, it will result in my immediate victory.

Anyone accepting this debate must argue with certain ratings of energy, training and technology given by me. Once the country is given by my opponent in Round 1, in Round 2 I will give the rankings of energy, technology, and training. Morale in armies can affect the course of the war. The debaters will have complete control over the nation they represent. Money in international debt will not be counted. For further reference, these are the top ten most powerful military powers (by my own ratings, after research from Global Firepower, Wikipedia, Forbes magazine, Business Insider, technology developmental programs, military training and size videos and various strongly reliable and accurate sources):
1. United States
2. Russia
3. China (People's Republic of China)
4. United Kingdom
5. France
6. Germany
7. India
8. Israel
9. Pakistan = Canada
10. South Korea = Japan
The ratings of the energy, technology, and training ability of a nation will be based on its rank, in addition to published Global Firepower firepower rating. My WMD is the 100-kiloton-yield nuclear warhead W76. The debate is subject to the terms and conditions of the Instigator (@tejretics).

W76 IS A WARHEAD OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Thus, Russia cannot use the W76 warhead. Con, therefore, will not use ANY WMD, as Con has violated the rule: "The war must be realistic." Also, a reminder: TURNS CAN LAST FROM 1 DAY TO 50 DAYS.

National Reconnaissance Office, Chantilly, Virginia

Satellite imagery of an NRO satellite patrolling the aerospace directly above the Mediterranean Sea reveals increased naval mobilization of the Russian Federation Naval Forces, with missiles possibly directed at the NSA Naples Naval Base of the United States. Similar satellite imagery is found revealing the Russian navy's mobilization at Eastern Russia, near Alaska at the Pacific Ocean. The data is sent to the Defense Intelligence Agency Headquarters at the Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington D.C. and to the National Geospatial Agency's headquarters at Fort Belvoir in Springfield, Virginia for further confirmation.

National Security Agency, Fort Meade, Maryland
A secure network radio transmission between the Kremlin and the GRU Headquarters, Moscow is intercepted by a radio-wave detection satellite deployed by the NSA (with assistance from the NRO) over Russia, with low-frequency communication. The contents are not entirely discernible, but the transmission hints of a Russian security threat to the United States. The information is given through extremely secure lines to the White House and the DIA Headquarters.

National Geospatial Agency, Springfield, Virginia
The satellite imagery from the NRO is confirmed with the NGA's satellite imagery sensing levels of deployment and more direct offensive-training exercises being performed by Russian military. The data is sent for verification to the NRO and the DIA. NRO verification is given immediately.

April 18th, 2015:
Defense Intelligence Agency, Washington D.C.
The satellite imagery of the NRO and the NGA and the secure transmission are analyzed by cryptologists and geospatial astronomers and geographers. The concluding information is sent to the White House for further analysis and Security Council arrangements. The same is also rallied to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Defense.

Debate Round No. 3


July 1st, 2015
Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, United States territory, Kamchatka Peninsula
11:45 A.M.
By an executive order of the President of the United States, with Congressional authorization and approval, and the consent of the Senate, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and nearby Vilyuchinsk are administered directly by the United States federal government, with a senior official of the ruling Democratic Party becoming Governor.

White House, Washington D.C.
June 31st, 2015
9:00 P.M. [15 minutes after events in Kamchatka; EST = Kamchatka time + 15 hrs]
The National Security Council convenes in the White House, in an emergency meeting. The military objectives of the United States Department of Defense, National Security Council, and the Office of the DNI are as follows:
  • Ukrainian re-occupation of the Crimean Peninsula
  • United States accession of the Kamchatka Peninsula
  • Withdrawal of Russian Navy forces from the Mediterranean Sea and the Northern Pacific Ocean
  • Payment of all Russian debt to the United States, OR surrender in armed conflict concluding with a United Nations peace treaty.

The Secretary of State offers the suggestion of a diplomatic agreement with the countries of Spain and Morocco to block passage of Russian forces through the Straits of Gibraltar. An agreement with the European Union would also allow passage and control (temporarily) of the Mediterranean Sea via air and water to block Russian passage to any American military bases. The suggestion is accepted by the President. In addition, the Secretary of Defense and the Chairperson of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the USAF propose a major security increase in the NCT Station in Naples, Italy to ensure proper communication between US naval forces in the Mediterranean. The President also authorizes an attack on Yelizovo from the constantly strengthening garrison at Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The executive direction is officially made by the President, and the forces stationed in the Mediterranean Sea are activated to a maximum security alert.

July 4th, 2015:
Straits of Gibraltar, Spanish-Moroccan joint-administered territory, Mediterranean Sea
11:15 A.M.
United States naval and air force troops have finished their maximum alert and are stationed at the Straits of Gibraltar following a successful diplomatic agreement with Spain and Morocco. Some of the warships deployed are newly commissioned Zumwalt-class destroyers. Tomahawk missiles holding BLU 97/B Combined Effects Bomb warheads are launched at the moving Russian fleet of the Mediterranean. The warship and supercarrier infrastructure is targeted, with Boeing F-22 Raptors scouring the skies, launching lethal gun- and cannon-fire. The destroyers stay in position without advancing beyond the Straits of Gibraltar. The Russians have been informed of complete elimination of all agreements between Spain/Morocco and Russia IF the Russians cross the Straits.

Department of State, Washington D.C.
An alliance has been negotiated with Bulgaria, Romania, Greece, Ukraine, and Turkey to allow reaching of aircraft to the Black Sea to strike some of the Russian Black Sea Fleet.

July 6th, 2015:
430 US aircraft and 35 helicopters are sent to the Black Sea from the forces in the Mediterranean Sea, reinforcements emerging from the Eastern United States and military bases across the EU (Greece, Italy etc.) The aircraft are opposed to 41 Russian warships and 3 submarines in the Black Sea Fleet, manned by 11,000 soldiers. To strike the naval air force of the Black Sea Fleet, a GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast warhead is detonated at air, giving it the virtual effects of a tactical nuclear weapon minus the radiation. (Note: While detonated in a non-conventional manner, by the classification in Round 1, the MOAB is NOT a WMD) The explosion also virtually destroys 8 Russian warships in close proximity, with a blast radius slightly less than the Hiroshima bomb.

July 9th, 2015:
Black Sea, International Waters
Further detonations of MOAB warheads render the Black Sea Fleet dysfunctional despite Russian reinforcements. The Black Sea is now effectively controlled by the extremely formidable air power of the United States. A further-negotiated diplomatic agreement with Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, and Ukraine allow the construction of US Naval & Air Force Bases in these countries to guard the Black Sea. The Black Sea is still officially international waters but is out of de facto Russian control.

July 11th, 2015:
Sevastopol, Crimean Federal District, Russian Federation
The chief Black Sea naval base still has Air Force reinforcements from Russia. All the deployed US aircraft (only 375 remain) strike the Sevastopol Naval Base with surface-level MOABs and GBU-97/B CEBs striking alternatively. The destroyers use gunfire, harpoon missiles, Phalanx missiles, Bushmaster cannons and torpedoes to attack the base. Russian reinforcements arrive swiftly, but the combined firepower of the United States fights back hard.

July 23rd, 2015
Sevastopol, disputed International Territory, Crimea
The overwhelming naval and air power of the US overpowers Russian forces in Sevastopol after a twelve-day battle. Sevastopol is captured and is under temporary administration of the United States, which announces that the town will soon be under the administration of Ukraine, thus strengthening the diplomatic alliance between the two nations.

July 24th, 2015:
Yelizovo, Kamchatka Peninsula
The Yelizovo invasion has begun, with Californian, Japanese, and South Korean reinforcements alongside forces stationed at Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky using powerful gunfire. RUM-162 ESSM SAMs are launched from destroyers, along with RUM-139 VL ASROCs, RIM-174A Standard Eram missiles, Mk 141 Harpoon Missiles and gunfire from 54 Mk-45 Mod 1/2 lightweight guns, 62 Mk-45 mod 4 lightweight guns, Phalanx CIWS guns, M242 Bushmaster cannons and Mark 32 triple torpedo tubes (Mk-54s). BGM-109 Tomahawk missiles holding BLU-97/B Combined Effects Bomb warheads and PBXN are launched directly from the destroyers to strike city infrastructure. Some Tomahawk missiles also have 1000 pounds of pentaerythritol tetranitrate, giving each missile a blast yield of 1,241.2 pounds of TNT.

August 2nd, 2015:
Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, United States territory, Kamchatka Peninsula
With the annexation of Yelizovo, the Kamchatka Peninsula is officially declared United States national territory. Huge military bases are set up there, with a borderline defense and a positioning of anti-ballistic missiles and reconnaissance satellites to protect from Russian invasion. The US government demands retreat of Russian forces from Ukraine and the Northern Pacific Ocean, and a UN-governed peace treaty with the Kamchatka Peninsula and the portion of the Northern Pacific Ocean between Alaska and Kamchatka to be governed by the United States.

Debate Round No. 4


The Russian force is weakened by the effective dysfunction of the Black Sea fleet, losing 41 warships, 3 submarines, 66 aircraft, and 11,000 soldiers. The Russian annual defense expenditure has not changed, thus leaving the number of troops the same.

Russian military data:
Total naval strength: 308
Frigates: 2
Destroyers: 11
Corvettes: 65
Submarines: 48 (attack of Vilyuchinsk further depleted Russian submarine strength)
Total aircraft: 3363
Active personnel: 755055
Reserve personnel: 2485000

United States defense expenditure:
Current expenditure: $642.7 billion
Increased expenditure: +$58.3 billion = $700 billion (from PPP GDP)
Active personnel: 1,430,000
Increased personnel (active): 1,880,000
Reserved transfer (to active): +100,000; 1,980,000
Remaining reserve personnel: 750,880

August 7th, 2015:
Souda Bay, Crete
9:58 A.M.
The LERTCON-1 and DEFCON-2 security alerts had been mobilized in US military installations four days ago. Now, the officers of NSA Souda Bay, a US Navy Installation, had a task: to mobilize the United States naval forces in Crete. Similar orders are given at NATO Air Bases to the Air Defense Systems of the US Air Force ALONE. The US-Greece Black Sea Pact had been finalized, allowing positioning of American forces along the Greek bay in exchange for $2 billion in loan installments in the next 3 months. The mobilization rate was 27% and rising. The ordered level: 100%.

4:15 P.M.
The mobilization percentage has successfully been raised to 100%.

August 11th, 2015:
Central Intelligence Agency, Washington D.C.
8:19 A.M. EST
Satellite imagery verified by the NRO and the NGA shows the zones of maximum militarization of Russian rebels in Ukraine. A secure cyber-transmission from the United States asks the Ukraine government to withdraw all military forces to Ukraine military bases.

August 13th, 2015:
Simferopol, Russia
12:01 P.M.
Destroyers and warships of the US Navy stationed in Greece mobilize to the coast of Simferopol, and a warning is issued from Washington D.C. to Moscow to withdraw control of Simferopol or face American attack. A US Land Force regiment is sent to major federal buildings of Simferopol, including the Parliament, the House of Ministers and the Government HQ. All Russian administrators are asked to release Simferopol from Russian control. Secret Delta Force operations assassinate Russian border guards and alert Ukrainian soldiers of their presence.

August 14th, 2015:
Washington D.C.
11:36 A.M. EST
With Congressional authorization, the President of the United States announces the shutting down of economic and trade relations with Russia effective immediately. The US Department of State contacts the Russian president in an urge to force Russian troops into withdrawal from Crimea. Control of the Northern Pacific Ocean and the border troops at the Straits of Gibraltar blocks Russian passage from its major oceanic trade routes, limiting its trade to Asia and Europe. Russian reserves of foreign exchange shoot down drastically, from $515.6 billion to $485 billion in 4 months. The American condition set forward is the withdrawal of control from the Republic of Crimea and Simferopol, and return of Crimean administration to Ukraine.

August 15th, 2015
Crimean Peninsula, disputed territory
The CIA's satellite verification is complete and a team of cruise aircraft launch weaponry from the thermosphere onto rebel military bases across Crimea. In merely 14 hours, all the rebel bases are destroyed with Tomahawk missiles, conventionally-used Trident missiles, and GBU-43/B MOABs, effectively destroying Russian control over Crimea.

August 22nd, 2015:
Moscow, Russia
2:49 P.M.
After 4 months and 5 days of conflict, Russia surrenders to the United States, and, after 1 year, 9 months and 1 day of crisis, Russia surrenders Crimea to Ukraine. Russia repays for the damages caused by the April 23rd attack.

Reasons for My Victory:
I have fulfilled all my military objectives: annexation of Kamchatka, liberation of Crimea, and withdrawal of Russian forces from Alaska and Ukraine, and the repayment of damages caused in the April 23rd attack. My opponent's constant forfeiture has diminished his conduct point, and I ask for him to be penalized in the vote for the same. Therefore, I ask you to vote for me, Pro, @tejretics.

Dear @The-Voice-of-Truth,
In reality, I came across VX while reading about organophosphates after watching an episode of the medical drama House M.D. (Season 1 Episode 8, "Poison"; Final diagnosis: Phosmet poisoning [Phosmet is a known organophosphate found in pesticides])
Regards, and with respect,

I have also been an ardent follower of Global Firepower, and have also created various lists of the most powerful military powers; we talk about international politics a lot at school as well.
Posted by tejretics 1 year ago
No, I did not reflect your debate at all. This is not plagiarism, because I had it inspired with some debates at school, involving fierce contention of military powers. Sorry, but your accusation is unfounded. I apologize for any accidental plagiarism, and I sincerely want you to know it was not intended.
Posted by The-Voice-of-Truth 1 year ago
Mhmm, excuse me if I have a hard time believing you; there are still more aspects to this debate that exactly reflect mine.

I do not mind letting people use my rules as an outline (or using them exactly), but I would like for people to at least ask. You may not know this, but that is plagiarism.
Posted by tejretics 1 year ago
I hadn't seen your debates before you commented on this.
Posted by The-Voice-of-Truth 1 year ago
Forgive me if I seem standoffish, but considering my first one started 3 weeks ago, any my second one has been up for 3 days (even though it is near the top of the list; I keep updating and changing some slight mistakes), I would say yours is exactly like mine, as you have only been on for a couple of days.
Posted by tejretics 1 year ago
Wow! Cool coincidence. Your first debate was pretty good, and EXACTLY like my two debates on a similar topic.
Posted by The-Voice-of-Truth 1 year ago
I mean, even your use of VX in a 15 ppm chemical WMD is exactly what I did in my first war debate.
