Emory National Debate Institute  2 Appeasement DA/Aff Ans EXPLANATION PAGE Appeasement is the theory that when a leader gives in to the demands of the people, the people will respond by thinking, “hey, that leader sure is weak, look how she gave us all this stuff.” As a result, they will ask for even more stuff from her. The dictionary defines it as – “satisfaction of an aggressor by granting of concessions.” Satisfaction meaning, doing what they want. An Aggressor being anyone that is being aggressive, or hostile. And, “granting of concessions” means to give people what they want. In other words, there are a lot of countries in the world that really hate the United States, for a whole bunch of different and random reasons. They all want the US to decrease the number of troops we have deployed abroad and quit messing with them. The plan does exactly what our enemies want, it decreases the number of troops we have out there. The disad is based around this concept. The Appeasement disad is likely to be, in some form, one of the most popular disads on this topic. UNIQUENESS – right now Obama is keeping our troop levels high. He is seen internationally as credible. When countries think about the President they respect him and still recognize that he has the will and the power to really rough them up if they need to. The best way to think about it is that Obama is a really muscular nice guy who is also a trained MMA fighter. LINK – decreasing troops sends the signal that we are weak. Our enemies will see us backing out of a country and take it as a sign that what they are doing is working. North Korea, for example, would respond to us removing troops from South Korea as a sign that all of their recent misbehavior [trying to get nuclear weapons, building up missiles, and moving their troops towards South Korea] is working. Other countries will also see that behavior and think Obama is showing a sign of weakness. Think of it as Obama is no longer seen as muscular, instead he shows people that he’s actually weaker than they thought he was. IMPACT – every enemy country in the world would act up. Which means global wars would happen. Iran would start to act even more aggressive. Russia would invade Georgia [not the state the foreign country]. North Korea would get more missiles. The Palestinians would take steps to agitate the Israelis.
