Emcee:  Hawkmoon Type:  Moderated
Primary Rules:

1.) Keep it clean.
2.) Keep it as objective as possible.
3.) Keep it relatively civil.
4.) Try to kiss and make up after you eventually blow your top in a heated debate..

And most importantly...

5.) Remember it's only a debating thread, not the UN..

I like to put ideas out there for public consumption which I feel are logically supported by facts. I WANT others to analyze my views and indicate other perspectives which I should incorporate. I hope others adher to the same belief that, only through debating with facts, not just rhetoric, we can all gain a better understanding of how Foreign Policy is influenced by various factors.

Other than that, we should all welcome a lively debate representing all realistic and objective perspectives (no Chomskyites). But be prepared to defend your beliefs and opinions, just as I am, and include documentation and/or links ...

I certainly won't throw you into FADT "jail" merely for publicly calling into question something I say (so long as your response is logically supported by facts, even if incorrect)...
