Good for a few reasons- 1. Key to test competition- no other way for the affirmative to test the links. 2. No ground loss- they should be prepared to answer a perm. 3. Key to education- forces the negative to answer multiple worlds increases critical thinking. Perm do the cp and do plan anyway Acknowledging NATO’s opinion while pursuing some policies without compromise can still facilitate an effective alliance Moravcsik, 3 (Andrew, Harvard Government Professor, “Striking a New Transatlantic Bargain,” Foreign Affairs, July/August, http://www.princeton.edu/~amoravcs/library/bargain.pdf) <The pessimists are right to note that the Iraq crisis highlighted the need for a new set of arrangements, structures that can deal with global issues but are appropriate to a world in which the United States and Europe possess different means, perceive different threats, and prefer different procedures. For their part, however, the optimists are right to argue that such crises are still manageable and that Western governments have a strong incentive to manage them. Wiser leadership on both sides, backed by solid institutional cooperation, could have avoided the transatlantic breakdown in the first place. To prevent future ruptures, both sides must recognize that they benefit from the active participation of the other in most ventures. Only a frank recognition of complementary national interests and mutual dependence will elicit moderation, self-restraint, and a durable willingness to compromise . To this end, the allies could follow one of three paths. They can simply agree to disagree about certain issues, cordoning off areas of dispute from areas of consensus ; they can begin to part ways militarily, with Europe developing its own, more autonomous force projection capabilities; or they can negotiate a new bargain, in which American military power and European civilian power are deployed together at targets of mutual concern. The first option is the simplest and least costly solution, but the last promises the greatest returns. decent diplomacy The easiest way to overcome the recent troubles would be for the United States and Europe to manage controversial high-stakes issues delicately while continuing to work together on other subjects that matter to both sides. This is how the Western alliance has functioned for most of its history—protecting core cooperation in European and nonmilitary matters, while disagreeing about “out of area” intervention and, sometimes, nuclear strategy. Today this lowest-common-denominator policy should still unite nearly all Western leaders.>
