Position Explanation To answer the readiness DA your main strategy will be no link and impact turns. The first impact turn is that readiness causes war.

Whitman College 3 Tournament 2009 File Title Non-Unique – Retreat Now US retreating now Charles Krauthammer , “Obama's many retreats signal U.S. weakness,” Washington Post, Friday, May 21, 2010 , Pg. http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2010/may/21/charles-krauthammer-obamas-many-retreats-signal/?print=1] WASHINGTON -- It is perfectly obvious that Iran's latest uranium maneuver , brokered by Brazil and Turkey, is a ruse . Iran retains more than enough enriched uranium to make a bomb. And it continues enriching at an accelerated pace and to a greater purity (20 percent). Which is why the French foreign ministry immediately declared that the trumpeted temporary shipping of some Iranian uranium to Turkey will do nothing to halt Iran's nuclear program.

That picture -- a defiant, triumphant take-that-Uncle-Sam -- is a crushing verdict on the Obama foreign policy. It demonstrates how rising powers, traditional American allies, having watched this administration in action, have decided that there's no cost in lining up with America's enemies and no profit in lining up with a U.S. president given to apologies and appeasement . They've watched President Obama's humiliating attempts to appease Iran , as every rejected overture is met with abjectly renewed U.S. negotiating offers. American acquiescence reached such a point that the president was late, hesitant and flaccid in expressing even rhetorical support for democracy demonstrators who were being brutally suppressed and whose call for regime change offered the potential for the most
