UN should make agreement to dismantle all nuclear weapons.
Debate Rounds (3)
Nuclear weapons would kill too much innocent people if they were used. It is better to dismantle them, then to risk by simply hoping no one will use them.
My opponent shall make counter-argument(s) in the first round.
plus, how and why would you enforce this? if a north korea or another doesn't want to follow the rules, are we doing to start a war just to enforce it? might it be better to only go to war if it looks like they might try to use them, or start making more and more? as it is now, counties aren't doing much with making or using them, they just have them. the status quo is better than starting a war when it might not even be needed. and if it was needed, would be better done when it actually is needed. this way, if it's never needed we avoided an unnecessary war.
R2) No country would declare war on vast majority of UN, because it is pure suicide, even if that vast majority had no nukes.
R3) Chances for WWIII to occur are high enough to be taken seriously. Two blocks are formed already (US + EU and India + Russia + China). US + EU has more military, and other block has better growing economy. There already is a small war in Ukraine between those 2 blocks, and it could easily escalate.
i dont know why con said something about invading UN natinos etc, as i didnt mention it. i am curious how itd be enforced though, and if con is getting at we put relentless anything goes pressure on them, why is that the best approch? why start a fight when one doens't exist?
i dont see a WWIII likely in the foreseeable future. everyone realizes it hurts everyone. but the prospect of WWIII i can agree should make us want to reduce the nukes everyone has. i guess the UN could make a resolution to dismantle them all, and people just not abide by it, but it could also just make a resaultion that says we're going to reduce the number. itd be mroe honest.
i realize that i merely said it was preferable in the last post, but i did mention it.
