[eDebate] A Proposed Mid-East topic resolution
Wed May 23 11:16:12 CDT 2007
There are 78 recommendations in the ISG, most of which include internal changes to Iraq policy. Some are really hawt for negative ground, like:RECOMMENDATION 32: Minorities. The rights of women and the rights of all minoritycommunities in Iraq, including Turkmen, Chaldeans, Assyrians, Yazidis, Sabeans, andArmenians, must be protected.The topic would be a complete nightmare in scope.Also, your suggested resolution does nothing to improve the Golan/Gaza solvency problems that you think you schooled me on. If you are correct that Israel won't accept the deal--you know, you're answer to that ancient Scowcroft solvency card you mock yet present no evidence whatsoever to counter--then the ISG recommendation of:RECOMMENDATION 16: In exchange for these actions (by Syria) and in the context of a full and securepeace agreement, the Israelis should return the Golan Heights, with a U.S. security guarantee forIsrael that could include an international force on the border, including U.S. troops if requestedby both parties.Is no different than the bilateral/Trilateral resolution. This recommendation is the same thing--offer security guarantees and CE To Syria in a deal with Israel to return Golan with the US negotiating a security guarantee for Israel. KellyKelly M.
