About "Diplomacy (CON)"
The CON team in this case attempts to disprove the resolution by arguing that anti-missile systems are harming diplomatic efforts, which increases the chances of war—thus helping to cause that which these systems are supposed to ameliorate.
The framework, therefore, will be Diplomacy. By presenting diplomacy as your standard, you can shortcut all of the technical military argumentation. After all, if other countries don’t want to attack you, then it doesn’t matter whether you’d beat them. The impacts of preventing war are wide-ranging, but value of life is the most obvious and easiest to sell to a judge.
Practical military argumentation in the first speech is also worthwhile as a way to hedge our bets in case the judge doesn’t buy that diplomacy is a sufficient way to resolve the crisis. That’s where contention three comes in. If the PRO team goes first and runs a suitable framework, it is probably better to re-package the argument as an off-case contention attacking the PRO framework.
Note that, in Contention 2, the radar unit is a part of the anti-missile system.
