No semantical arguments, the topic is easy to understand. Any confusion about the meaning of the resolution must be resolved before the debate starts.

BoP is shared so both sides must present positive cases. However, PRO bears the biggest burden. Good luck.

Sorry, but I just don't have the time right now to retype my argument

Added:
Instigator
--> @Sum1hugme

Maybe you could write your argument in the comments?

Added:
Contender
--> @Benjamin

It's really okay bro. I made a mistake, and the debate can just move forward. I don't really want to restart it because I've potentially got a lot of busy stuff to do here in the near future. I'm just sorry that you don't get to write your final rebuttals. We can just write our closings and let the judges have at it

How can we resolve the debate in a fair manner?

Added:
Instigator
--> @Sum1hugme

I will ensure you will not take the conduct point, that's a promise.

Added:
Contender
--> @Benjamin

Feel free to continue as usual. I'll just take the conduct point. I mainly wanted you to know that it was an accident.

Added:
Instigator
--> @Sum1hugme

How do you suggest the debate to proceed?

Added:
Instigator
--> @Sum1hugme

That's fine. I don't blame you, lest I be hypocritical. We all make mistakes my friend.

Oh man, I clicked the publish button and confirmed, but I guess I forgot to press it again in the review debate page.

All good, I don't sweat it

LOL time slipped for me also.

Sorry about the typo. The sentence: "The growing strength of the nations surrounding China, it’s historical tendency to lash out against threats, and the juxtaposed commitments of the Chinese and Taiwanese governments to Taiwanese independence."

should've ended with"...is reason to foresee Chinese aggression."

Haha, don't worry, I'll get it posted in time

Added:
Instigator
--> @Sum1hugme

Time is soon running out. I don't know why you haven't posted yet, but an auto-forfeit would be a shame. I hope you will find time to write the argument in time.

Added:
Contender
--> @Benjamin

Yeah absolutely me too. This is a topic I've given some thought to, so I'll make sure I don't forget.

Added:

--> @Sum1hugme

I am pleased to be debating you again, especially on this topic. I wish you the best of luck.

Added:
--> @Benjamin

Ah yes, a gun shown in Act 1 will not be fired in Act 3 anymore. I wish I could debate this topic, but I am at a loss for decent arguments.
