Debate the new U.N proposal.

The proposal is Repeal "Fight the Axis of Evil"

A proposal to repeal a previously passed resolution

Category: Repeal

Resolution: #1

Proposed by: New Western America

Description: UN Resolution #1: Fight the Axis of Evil (Category: International Security; Strength: Strong) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: While there is much fear surrounding the issue of global terrorism, the answer is most definitely not for UN members to build massive numbers of weapons.

Four reasons:

Member nations should not be forced to have a large military budget, especially when so many are struggling to pay for domestic costs like healthcare and education.

The "Axis of Evil" could be use to label any country as an excuse for other countries to invade.

Terrorist organizations are just that, organizations, not armies, and therefore large forces are not necessary to eliminate them.

Finally, massive mobilization of troops and building of weapons only serves to bring about fear in the minds of the people.

The best way to combat global terrorism is through intelligence; perhaps a new resolution regarding this should be brought to the floor.

Votes For: 4,018

Votes Against: 947

My debate is:
There are many reasons why "Fight Axis for Evil" should not be repealed but these are the main ones to me.

1) UN delegates also have the right to protect themselves against large numbers
of military attack.

2) Even if there are a lot of terriost nations i have one friend (Jaxus/Jaxusim) who has a two terriost nations but he would never accompany a world wide terrioist attack. and if there is a attack of such enormity he will help to fight against the nations that are attacking.

seriously Sportiana

PS: any one who wants to argue this is welcome. :)

all for repealing. It's just a reason given for attacking a nation.
There are no Terronations. Active terrorists are few inhabitants. And even if some nations support terror:
Massive military action does not, at ALL, help against terror attacks.
Quite the opposite is true. For every innocent person killed in such a war against terror, you spawn the flame of hatred in 10 new hearts...

Persons who have lost everything are readily willing to sacrifice themselves for beliefs offered to them.
And thats just about the only thing this resolution achieves.
