About "Arms Race Prevention (CON)"
In this case, we argue that the deployment of missile systems in South Korea (particularly THAAD, but the generic arguments really apply to any such system) will make things worse for everyone involved by inciting an arms race.
Note that if the PRO team brings up the prisoner’s dilemma, you can point out that in this particular case, disarming THAAD doesn’t lower your defenses all that much—especially since you have contention 2.
Note to debaters: you may want to reword my tags and impacts and suggested speeches. I had some fun with a few of them, and you also ought to assess how your judge is likely to react.
