Russia: to be UQ or Non UQ

Recommended Posts

As many of you know, oil prices are now in the shitter as well as the recent bombings by moskow on georgia. However, oil prices are expected to rise and there has been a ceasfire declared. demand in china is through the roof as well as in america because of the declared ceasfire...Given all of this what do you think the uniqueness status is of the oil DA? do you think falling oil prices are enough to permanantly non UQ it? or do you think the short conflict in russia shows that we are on the brink of fucking them over? Also, does anyone know of any cards that give a price that oil could fall to? i think roberts has one. Anyway, Discuss...

UQ overwhelms the link - even with $20 drops in oil prices it's still anywhere from 2x-5x more than link and impact cards talk about. And it's probably going to go up from here.

that might apply to the oil price based disad - but the better ones are based on perception of increasing alternative energy - i.e. the topic - rather than the 2005 college topic. backfiles=fail.

and spotting the aff solvency would give you a huge link - as in they usually claim to severely cut gas prices. If they run gw advantages. not that you necessarily want to spot them solvency...

and the cards really talk about less than $20 drops? that doesn't make logical sense....

instead most of the ev isn't reverse causal, and says that high oil prices keep russia's econ going, and therefore have a huge brink...

 

as for georgia, it depends on the da. Russian relations/expansionism impacts could be spun as either brink or e/d, as always.

 

for oil prices... they're still incredibly high in comparison to when brink cards were written so...

Nah, I just meant that even after prices just dropped $20, it's still very much unique.
