Let's nuke em. They have whale sharks -- obviously a threat to the US Navy.


Ah, but since we can nuke them, they aren't a threat, now, are they?
Debate Round No. 1


My opponent is obviously using the argumentum ad nukeum. It's pathetic.


Alright, if you insist:

Have fun!
Debate Round No. 2


Welly welly welly welly well. This is an unfortunate turn of events.

In conclusion, the Maldives have whale sharks; whale sharks are malicious; we ought nuke that which is malicious; hence we ought nuke whale sharks; hence we ought nuke the Maldives.

The resolution is affirmed.


I do not accept Pro's third premise, being that "we ought to nuke that which is malicious." Indeed, he has not proven the validity of the axiom upon which he has based his argument. Nihilism wins any debate, amirite?

This debate was to give me voting privileges; it should remain a tie.
