  1. Hey, does anyone know what Parkway south, Parkway West, and/or Jefferson City Reads?
  2. Cross-x 1. Post-plan, is there a war in the Korean peninsula? No. Withdrawal solves escalation of war and regionalism Ok, the conflicts wouldn't escalate, but would there be conflict? No. if any it'd be contained though. 2. Why hasn't NK used its bioweapons/nukes yet? Only in case of conflict escalation/big war would they use them. Why hasn't conflict escalated? Small indicators right now. 3. What specifically is occurring in the Korean Peninsula that is emboldening the North? They are becoming more aggressive I hope that is what you are going for. This is because the tension in the region with the United States presence there. So the US and SK are becoming more aggressive? How? Like taking larger measures to try to put rigors on the north. also the north is pretty pissy 5. Why would the US strike NK with nukes? treaty with south korea and they have to maintain a credible deterrent force if North Korean used Nuke or cbw. They'd be forced to by the role of the deterrence. To uphold the commitment President will have to retaliate. If Korea used CBWs, why would that prompt nuclear retaliation, as opposed to a traditional war-fighting force? The card is actually pretty sweet on that. The mpx of cbw is comparable to that of a nuclear attack so it's like an eye for an eye in some ways. but also obama would be forced to. 6. How is regionalism in Asia in the squo? US bilateral alliances. Who does the US have bilateral alliances with and why do they prevent overall regional cooperation? We are talking about SK-US alliance. Because it encourages sk to just trade with us and that causes lots of pissed off people in the region. it also makes US be a player in that region and that looks like we are just a foreign occupier. 7. Why doesn't SK want to participate in East-Asian multilateral institutions? SK obstructionism is occurring in the squo. w/d forces them to cooperate with others in the region and make a multilateral institution. Ok, but WHY isn't SK being obstructionist? Also, how does this completely undermine regionalism? because they have US at there backs. they don't need to work within the region That's a pretty direct response.

How many/what kind of bioweapons does the NK have? "that North Korea has developed anthrax, plague, and botulism toxin and conducted extensive research on smallpox, typhoid and cholera. " "Unclassified estimates of the chemical weapons (CW) arsenal are imprecise, but the consensus is that the Korean People’s Army (KPA) possesses 2,500-5,000 tons, including mustard, phosgene, blood agents, sarin, tabun and V-agents (persistent nerve agents). " those are lines from Levy 7 and ICG 9 5. Why would the US strike NK with nukes? treaty with south korea and they have to maintain a credible deterrent force if North Korean used Nuke or cbw.

  6. One. A few going to Glendale though.
  7. Who is going? How many teams? What is going on? Any news that needs to be shared? Just let's get back into debate season!
  8. Who all plans on attending? It would be great to develop a list.
  9. MSDI is a great camp for the cost. It has great lab leaders and a lot of practice rounds to make your skills even better.
  10. Does this mean the infamous Daniel Plott will be attending?
  11. For any and all who are looking to be successful in their debating experience I will say that Missouri State Debate Camp (MSDI) can provide the skills you need to beat your opponents. MSDI has proof of the success it brings to the kids who go there: The state qualifiers in the Ozark district all four teams were people who had been to this camp. Also, the last two state champs in Missouri have been kids that have went to this camp. Some of you may know Thomas Hodgman, a debate on the national circuit who got 4 bids and went to the Tournaments of Champions (TOC). Thomas will even say that this camp was “Awesome” and it “helped him get to where is he is today”. MSDI’s track record of the kids who went to the camp success has been quite appealing. So if you are new to debate or old to debate go to MSDI this summer you won’t regret it, I promise. Plus you get the best bang for your buck, the cost is nothing compared to other camps nationally. Here are the dates for the camp this year. Also here is their online site: http://debate.missouristate.edu/camp.htm Based on the success of the 3 week option, they have expanded to offer options for 3 or 4 weeks. They will also have a 2nd two-week session. Here are all the policy debate camps in summer 2010: 2 Week Policy, 1st Session (June 20-July 3) ($550 Commuters, $1100 Dorm) 2 Week Policy, 2nd Session (July 4 - July 17) ($550 Commuters, $1100 Dorm) 3 Week Policy (June 20-July 10) ($750 Commuters, $1500 Dorm) 4 Week Policy (June 20-July 17) ($950 Commuters, $1900 Dorm) Their purpose is to accommodate the growing demand for camp dates that allow students to attend more than one workshop. Whether you attend one workshop or many, consider MSDI a great start to the summer.
