2 Week Discussion 2 "Policy Arguments" Please respond to the following: From the case study, Case 8.1, use the argument mapping procedures presented in the chapter and provide two pros and two cons (or strengths and weaknesses) of the recommendation that the United States should NOT intervene in the Balkans. Pros (strengths) The United States has no strategic interest in the Balkans. No Peace, no peace dividend. Unless the West can impose the view that ethnic purity can no longer be the basis for national sovereignty, the endless national war will replace the Cold War. In the United States, the Bush Administration had decided not to become militarily involved in Balkan conflicts. The U.S. had fought the Gulf War in 1991 and coming off that war the Bush Administration was of the opinion that conflicts in the Balkans should be settled by the powers in Europe, and it was encouraged in this decision by European powers agreeing that it should be they who intervened in the Balkans rather than the United States. Cons (Weakness) This threat has appeared in genocidal from Bosnia. If it cannot be contained here, it will erupt elsewhere, and the Clinton Administrations domestic agenda will be an early casualty. The Serbs continued killing people as they moved to acquire control over more territory in anticipation of a settlement that was being planned by the United Nations. From the e-Activity, discuss two different modes of argument and examples of formal and informal fallacies. Provide the source(s) of the modes of arguments and fallacies you identified. Affirming the consequent: The Fiscal Cliff was the topic last year. Fiscal cliff is the popular shorthand term used to describe the conundrum that the U.S. government face will at the end of 2012, when the terms of the Budget Control Act of 2011 are scheduled to go into effect. Fallacy of Composition: The fiscal cliff agreement is good news to some extent, although it shouldn't be ignored that lawmakers had 507 days (since the August, 2011 debt ceiling agreement) to address this problem, but still came down to the final hours before they were able to reach a solution - an unnecessary, self-inflicted burden on the economy and financial markets. What's more, the agreement addressed only the revenue side (taxes) but postponed any discussion of spending cuts for another two month . At the end, a decision was made on the fiscal cliff. There were some things that were left off for later discussion, but the major things were resolved. The unemployment benefits will continue to be sent. The tax credit for renewable energy will extended for another year. Tax rates will be extended for all wage earners. When you look at it was there deals cut or was there a bandage put on the wound that eventually hurt the citizens of the United States. References: Caldwell, L. A. (2012, December 31).
