Debate Rules:

1) Post in your team's color, in order to identify the stance you are debating from. This helps identify who is who. [I]Teams are assigned by the opening Moderator, and you will not always be put on the team you personally believe in. This is sometimes accidental, and sometimes intentional, either way the purpose of debating in this fashion is to allow you to grow as a person and learn what information is out there. In some cases you may learn facts which change your stance, in others you may learn information which affirms your stance, in either case you will be more informed about those who have an opposite stance.

2) If you are not listed on a team and wish to join the debate, please see [URL=http://www.gamepoliticsforums.com/showthread.php?t=2712&page=3]The Debate Thread Revived[/URL] for how to join. (PM a mod.) If you are not listed as being on a debate team your post will be deleted, until you officially join and are assigned a team.

3) The Opening Moderator and any Moderator who does not choose to debate will only participate with informational posts, and the enforcement of debate rules. If a moderator chooses to debate, he/she will be assigned a team by the opening moderator.

4) There will be strict enforcement of the insult & threatening rules in the Debate thread. The debate is about the topic not individuals.

5) A moderator will close a debate thread when: It is reasonably apparent that the debate has become completely one sided; the debate becomes a flame war; participation in the thread drops for several days on end; a moderator deems that the teams are re-hashing the same arguments. At the time of closing the closing moderator may or may not decide to post a closing statement.

6) The Moderators may add or change these rules if deemed necessary. Changes will be posted in the opening post, and announced in the thread. Most of the time changes will only be made between debates.[/B]

Now lets have our first Debate:

[QUOTE=Wikipedia]Darfur (Arabic: دار فور, lit. "home of the Fur") is a region of far western Sudan, bordering the Central African Republic, Libya, and Chad. It is divided into three federal states within Sudan: Gharb Darfur (West Darfur), Janub Darfur (South Darfur), and Shamal Darfur (North Darfur). It is currently in the midst of an ongoing humanitarian crisis originating from the conflict between Janjaweed militias and rebel groups (namely the Sudan Liberation Movement and Justice and Equality Movement)

I doubt anyone here could reasonably debate there is a humanitarian crisis in the Darfur region of Sudan. There are reasonable questions that could be asked regarding this region.

Here is the debate question:

[I]Does the United Nations have a legitimate legal right to enter Sudan and take control of the Darfur Region without Sudan's permission?[/I]

Here are the debate teams:

[COLOR=Blue]Blue Team[/COLOR] will be supporting the Right of the UN to enter Sudan and end the crisis in Darfur.
Green Team[/COLOR] will be against UN interference in a Sovereign Nation.

[COLOR=Blue]Blue Team
The Gladiator

[COLOR=green]Green Team

Color update folks. Our new mod wishes to be the [COLOR=Red]Red Mod[/COLOR], in accordance with her wishes the Red team is henceforth the [COLOR=Green]Green Team[/COLOR].
