War Dolphins

Recommended Posts

Judges would think it's not topical. The resolution calls for NON-MILITARY exploration and/or development.

As a judge of low level varsity debate rounds, I would LOVE it if you read war dolphins. But most judges you get will think you should read war whales instead. (Whale poop solves global warming btw)

I hit an aff that trained sharks to defend the US coast from Russian and Iranian killer dolphins. Said dolphins are apparently being equipped with modified harpoons and guns and are going to attack our coast. Also, their plan would apparently solve for the lionfish invasion. T-Non Military worked pretty well, especially with a lay judge.

Do you have cites for this aff? Assuming you're not trolling, I really want to see the articles they cut this aff from.

I don't have the complete cite info, but I flowed and got most of them.

 

Harms:

A. Russia is in possession of killer dolphins 

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/ukraine/10724506/Ukraines-spy-dolphins-switch-allegiance-to-Russia.html

B. Iran also has military dolphins

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/world/middle_east/670551.stm

 

Inherency:

A. The US is training dolphins right now, not sharks

I don't have a cite for this card. It basically said how we have been training dolphins since the 60's.

 

Plan: The USFG should fund university research and development to train sharks to defend the coasts of the US.

Funding ($15 Billion) will come from wasteful government spending

 

Solvency:

A. Sharks can be trained like dolphins 

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/5428522/Sharks-can-be-cuddled-like-dolphins-say-scientists.html

 

Advantage One: Lionfish

A. Lionfish are on track to kill bio-d

No cite, but a quick Google search will give you the same thing

B. Loss of Bio-d --> Extinction

Same as above

C. Sharks can be trained to lionfish, K2 save Bio-d

http://content.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,2070599,00.html

 

That was basically it. At first we thought the other team was trolling, but it is actually a thing (granted, it turns out that Russia only has 10 dolphins, and Iran only has 4: http://www.theatlantic.com/international/archive/2014/03/ukraine-was-never-crazy-about-its-killer-dolphins-anyway/359647/). Also, they really had no solvency advocates for doing their plan.

how do you not just play Jaws for every speech as an impact turn?

Can anyone help me turn war dolphins into a counterplan? I need help with the internal and external net-benefits parts specifically. In my circuit, this counterplan could do very well, any help would be super appreciated!

Do you have some sort of lit base for this cp from research? I wonder what would be said against the perm. Maybe this could be some sort of creative adv cp for heg
