Not much of a fan of 1 - still not sure which way we are going to vote.
One quirk of note for res 2 and 3. The parts that are potentially troublying
Resolution 2 - "Reduce the size of its nuclear weapons arsenal"
Resolution 3 - "a substantial reduction inthe size of its nuclear
Both of these resolutions seem to allow for an Aff to blow up nuclear
weapons. While not widely supported, this might throw a wrinkle into
expected negative ground. Resolution 1 avoids this problem because of
the stipulation that the aff be in line with disarmament treaties.
Spark, mini-nuke a terrorist, attack China/North Korea, test
weapon(s), transverse the fantasy by blowing up a weapon, blowing up
an asteroid are all ways to engage in "A substantial reduction in the
size of its nuclear weapons arsenal" Res 3 OR even more dangerously
"reduce the size of its nuclear weapons arsenal" Res 2.
Not psyched about this possibility.
