The US provides anti-terrorism military aid to Egypt. Unfortunately, that support is not sufficient. When the Affirmative team increases military aid and training with this plan, they will reaffirm the U.S.–Egypt relationship, boost the U.S. weapon manufacturing industry, and help Egypt in the war on terrorism.
The United States currently has over 90% of food donated as foreign food aid bought in the US and then the physical bags of grain are shipped to the needy countries. This plan takes the recommendation of many experts who advocate switching to local and regional procurement (LRP).
The Affirmative case argues that further military efforts in Afghanistan are futile. This Negative brief argues that withdrawing our forces would lead to a much worse future. The Status Quo is effectively fighting terrorism there, and if corruption is a problem, US presence is the best way to fight it.
