About "National Security"
When resolutions like this show up on the debate circuit, a lot of people (including people like myself) seem to have PTSD flashbacks to George Orwell’s 1984. But even small-government enthusiasts like me have to recognize that there is a legitimate role for government to play, namely the protection of its citizens. That is the focus of this case.
As the affirmative, you can grant that preventive warfare is not justified in every single case. Your position should be that when it is appropriate, preventive warfare should be an option for us.
Be sure to focus your attention on the historical examples as well as the cases in which we would need to wage preventive warfare. Concreteness is key.
