Let me just start by saying it feels great to be back in the saddle again!
Now, first things second. If you would allow me to express my unflinching gratitude to all the people involved with setting up this little tiff. You
certainly are a merry little band of colorful characters. I would also like to use this oppurtunity to thank hyperion.martin, who has already caused
the corners of my mouth to turn up in a kind of twisted smile with his/her opening post. Don't worry though my new friend as they say in my buisness,
this will only hurt a little.
On to more pertinent matters...
"When Kim Jong-Il Dies, North Korea will Become Our Allies."
I will be arguing the con position, and Oh. happy day this should be fun!
Now I hate to quote my opponents opening argument, however in this special case of blatant reigious prejudice I feel the need to ask my dear opponent
what exactly he is implying by saying -
I will offer evidence of Social, National and most importantly Religious flaws woven within the culture of the North Koreans,
Hyperion Martin would have you believe that this rich, diverse culture, that doesn't happen to be his own or within his comfort-zone, is FLAWED?! I
must vehemantly disagree with this method of thinking. Different is not flawed. Never has been, variety is the spice of life.
Wow! I'm sure Hyperion did not mean to insult the religiosity of the North Korean people so I am prepared to let him/her slide on this one.
and on to the real debate!
I will attempt, using my own unique brand of execution argumentation, to place the head of my esteemed colleague on the metaphorical chopping block,
and hopefully decapitate him on the first swing of my logic axe.
The death of one man will not constitute the dissolution, nor demise of an established ideology or culture. I will show that North Korea has made it
to where they are today because of their paticular form of government, and because of their resolve and the specific ways that they conduct
My opponent would immediately try to draw a correlation between Kim Jong-Il and other completely different dictatorships that have ended badly. Do not
be led in by this tactic. Governments are unique multi-faceted creatures that must be studied individually, not lumped together. Remember China and
Cuba are both communist as well. Is everyone that does not use capitolism or democracy flawed? Only from a very one-sided standpoint.
I will show you, dear readers, that following the death of Kim Jong-Il it will be buisness as usual in North Korea. If anything the death of their
"great leader" would strengthen the resolve of the people.
The U.S. will not be allies with North Korea unless they abandon their nuclear programs. There is, without a doubt, more people than just Kim Jong-II
that have vested interest in these programs. They provide power-plants that give the people electricity, much as we do in the U.S.. For the U.S. to
expect these people to change completely because of the death of one man or 100,000 men is absurd. Would we? Would we abandon our nuclear stockpiles?
I think not, however we will insist that they do!
Come on...................I mean come on, The demise and transformation of North Korea to meet U.S. ideals...come on! They are just as proud of their
country as we are of ours.
I could write like five more paragraphs, but I don't like to kick people when their down.
Clean yourself up. I'll see you in your next post...
