About "Saudi Arabia (NEG)"
The emotional impact in the affirmative case is real and strongly compelling. It also makes intuitive sense to judges. So don’t dismiss the emotional side of the debate or treat it like it’s unimportant. Be sensitive to the fact that violent and heinous things are occurring during the conflicts in the Middle East. When countering the emotional appeal, it’s important to bring judges back to the fact that this debate is going on right now in the media and in Congress. A bill was in fact proposed to end our arms sales to Saudi Arabia, but was defeated. There is a legitimate case to be made that even though we might disagree with Saudi Arabia’s human rights violations, we still should not end our arms sales to the country. In this case, the disadvantages will be your biggest strength. Recognize that there are some downsides to our Saudi Arabia arms sales, but that it would be far worse to reduce or eliminate these exports.
