0 points
18 points
: What things are missing or need to be changed in the current proposed deal?
: I don't think Israel should accept the deal because Iran isn't trust-worthy and nuclear weapons just cause massive destruction and don't solve anything at all.
: Were you aware that the framework of the proposal theoretically makes it impossible for Iran to produce nuclear weapons?
: Secondly, if you claim Iran isn't trustworthy, yet the agreement has almost no stipulations for the P5, what would Iran's motivation be in wanting to take the deal be?
: *ignore the "be" before the question mark
: Can you answer the question in words please?
: They shouldn't take the deal. Because it would be more peaceful to not to and Iranians would be able to bombs eventually.
: So the P5 nations should not take the deal because a nuclear bomb is inevitable?
: exactly.
: That will be all my questions this round. Do you have anything you would lik
: - like to ask me?
: Is Iran trustworthy ?
: Iran can be trustworthy

Based on the trademark forfeit in the first round, I know who my money is one for PRO.

Pro had more forfeits, which is unacceptable for both sides to do. Con had a source though neither side had great arguments.

Neither side should forfeit, nor should they include a source as their only argument in a round.

Con win, but ONLY on the basis of burden of proof. I suspect both sides ran out of time.

Pro asked a few questions in the CX, which were ok, but it needed to be backed up with some substantive narrative for why the resolution was true.

Con has sources, which are ok, but they needed to be backed up again with constructive arguments for why the resolution was true.

As neither side made an argument, neither side was convincing. As pro had the burden of proof initially in this debate, this is a clear neg win.

Conduct - Con. Pro forfeited one more round, and, thus, the majority of the debate, which is rarely acceptable conduct in any debate setting. Therefore, conduct goes to Con. | Spelling & Grammar - Tie. Both sides maintained reasonable spelling and grammar with no major errors. Thus, spelling and grammar are tied. | Arguments - Tie. Neither side made any "arguments" per se, except in the cross-ex round. | Sources - Con. Pro didn't use any sources, whereas Con did. | As always, happy to clarify these reasons.

Both sides forfeited the majority of the debate. Forfeiture is hardly acceptable conduct in any debate setting, and, as always, I recommend both debaters to not forfeit any rounds in the debate. Secondly, answers in the cross-examination should not (for lack of a better phrase) merely reiterate the question, for example: "Is Iran trustworthy? - Iran can be trustworthy." A slightly more detailed explanation would do better.

Alright, let's get right to it. Neither side presented any argument whatsoever. Con, in Round 1, presented only one source: The New York Times, which is sometimes considered a biased source. Since this source was the only attempt within the debate to even make an argument, the debate has to go to Con by default. Both sides forfeited, but Pro did it more.

Don't forfeit... EVER. And actually post something that is not in the intermission/cross-examination area.

Instead of using just a source as an argument, summarize the article, then cite the source in your debate. I will provide an example.

Blah blah yadda. [1]

[1] https://www.google.com/search?q=blah+blah+yada+yada&espv=2&biw=1276&bih=605&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=z0tTVenqHJDAgwStjYGoCQ&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAg

So you see, it isn't all that hard, just don't plagiarize. And if you just copy-and-paste from the source, put everything you got from the source in quotation marks ("...").
