Dartmouth 2K9 Needles – Iraq Adv Neg LAB SS JZ 1NC Iraq 1. Cant solve Middle East conflict without confronting the issue of Israeli nuclear weapons. Steinbach 2 (Center for research on Globalization, http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/STE203A.html Many Middle East Peace activists have been reluctant to discuss, let alone challenge, the Israeli monopoly on nuclear weapons in the region, often leading to incomplete and uninformed analyses and flawed action strategies. Placing the issue of Israeli weapons of mass destruction directly and honestly on the table and action agenda would have several salutary effects. First, it would expose a primary destabilizing dynamic driving the Middle East arms race and compelling the region's states to each seek their own "deterrent." Second, it would expose the grotesque double standard which sees the U.S. and Europe on the one hand condemning Iraq, Iran and Syria for developing weapons of mass destruction , while simultaneously protecting and enabling the principal culprit. Third, exposing Israel's nuclear strategy would focus international public attention, resulting in increased pressure to dismantle its weapons of mass destruction and negotiate a just peace in good faith. Finally, a nuclear free Israel would make a Nuclear Free Middle East and a comprehensive regional peace agreement much more likely. Unless and until the world community confronts Israel over its covert nuclear program it is unlikely that there will be any meaningful resolution of the Israeli/Arab conflict , a fact that Israel may be counting on as the Sharon era dawns. 2. No Risk of escalation – Ferguson makes an assertion that Iraqi civil wars would become regional –this is empirically disproven. 3. Opium prices is key to Afghan economy – decreasing value results in instability AP 2009 (“Without opium, Afghan village economy spirals”, http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/32258924/ns/world_news- south_and_central_asia/page/2/) SHAHRAN, Afghanistan - For as long as anyone can remember, there was no need for paper money in this remote corner  of the  Hindu Kush. The common currency was  what grew in everyone's backyard —  opium .  When children felt like buying candy, they  ran into their father's fields and returned with a few grams of opium folded inside a leaf. Their mothers collected it in plastic bags,  trading 18 grams for a meter of fabric or two liters of cooking oil. Even a visit to the barbershop could be settled in opium.   But the   economy of this village sputtered to a halt  last year when the government began aggressively enforcing a ban on opium   production. Villagers were not allowed to plant their only cash crop. Now shops are empty and farmers are in debt, as entire
