PF Jan ’17 – Military Spending

Resolved: In order to better respond to international conflicts, the United States should significantly increase its military spending.

So, at the last hour before the last tournament at which we’ll be debating this topic, the following article shows up:

Pro gives their arguments for increased spending, then Con gets up with this article and says that we’re already doing it. Then what?

(A PDF of the article is in the Extemp Files in the US Military – Cyber folder.)
