Oh snap the stuff is ON! Imabench is here to bongongle frazzle dazzle us all! And the worst notable debater he lost against was among YYW, Bsh1, and Roy (not to mention the one against Bsh was very narrow in my perspective especially since he messed up in the last round!)

1) The US should continue to place more sanctions against Russia (I would be Pro)
2) It was good that the US restored talks with Cuba (I would be Pro)
3) The US should lift the trade and travel embargo against Cuba (I would be Pro)

I don't want you to be confused... so I'll explain.

Good juges:

1. Tyler
2. Liz
3. thett
4. Bobbert

And maybe Ajabi... maybe not. I haven't really read enough of what he's judged to have an opinion one way or another.

The problem is that Liz is on there twice, and the rest of the judging pool is weak. It's not that they're all bad judges per se (although compelling arguments could me made that some of the remaining judges I didn't listed are) but this tornament would have a lot more legitimacy if Whiteflame, Bladerunner or Bluesteel (or me) in the judging pool.
