      Counter-Advocacy  We have an ethical obligation to kill terrorists.
      So do we
      Beres, 2005
      (Professor of International Law) [Dr. Louis Rene, May 25, 2005]

      Our world is "normally" AND fresh corpses.

      The impact of terrorism is not just some big bang - it takes place throughout the world each and every day through suicide bombings which transform society to a life of permanent suffering.
      Beres and Messing 2004
      (Prof: of International Law) (Cook County radiologist) [Dr. Louis Rene and Michael L, February 10, 2004]

      But what exactly, does AND last be acknowledged.

      Truth is objective and can be accessed by empirical scientific analysis
      Sokal, Professor of Physics at New York University,96
      (“A Physicist Experiments With Cultural Studies”, [Elliot]
      Why did I do it? AND truth and falsity.

      1. Existential questions should always supersede epistemology
        Kateb, Prof of Politics @ Princeton, 1992 (George, The Inner Ocean, pg. 144)
      1. Nuclear Terrorism is likely, causes nuclear retaliation, and triggers a new arms race – Iraq proves

      Rhodes Richard, affiliate of the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford University, Former visiting scholar at Harvard and MIT, and author of “The Making of the Atomic Bomb” which won the Pulitzer Prize in Nonfiction, National Book Award, and National Book Critics Circle Award. 12-14-09“Reducing the nuclear threat: The argument for public safety”

      The response was very different AND sending a message.

      US retaliation to a terrorist attack causes global nuclear war.

      Corsi  Ph.D. in Political Science from Harvard University 2005 [Jerome Corsi (Expert in Antiwar movements and political violence), Atomic Iran, pg. 176-178]

      The United States retaliates AND exacting revenge.

      1: There is no justification for terrorism – it legitimates the worst barbarism ever imagined. One cannot justify, explain or understand terrorists – you must only reject them
      Netanyahu 1995
      Former Prime Minister of Israel [Benjamin,Terrorisrn: how democracies can defeat domestic and international terrorists.]

      The salient point that has to be AND cause in any way.

      2: Extinction is Inevitable - Morality before Justice makes Responding to Future Attacks Impossible. And, this turns case – their ethical moral claims make extinction inevitable
      Hannity 2004
      (Sean [debater extraordinaire], Deliver Us From Evil: Defeating Terrorism, Despotism, and Liberalism, HarperCollins publishers in NY, pg 9) IB

      This kind of moral relativism AND threatens our nation.

      3: Language is the strongest weapon in WOT going easy on terrorists creates more attacks.
      Murdock, ' 5
      [Deroy, nationally syndicated columnist with the Scripps Howard News Service "terrorism and the English language" HomelandDefense/hl867.cfm March 9 Heritage Lecture #867]

      I live on Manhattan Island AND English language.

      4: To understand terrorists and not regard their actions of the worst of crimes, it means forgiving. The impact is the end of civilization
      Elshtain 3
      Jean Betake Elshtain, Laura Spelman Rockefeller Professor of Social and Political Ethics, University of Chicago Divinity School, 2003 (Just War Against Terrorism)

      We must never lose AND evil, just insane.

      5: Turn – Making terrorists into victims justifies any evil that is perpetrated by them. This is similar to trying to find justification behind death camps
      Elshtain 3
      Jean Betlike Elshtain, Laura Spelman Rockefeller Professor of Social and Political Ethics, University of Chicago Divinity School, 2003 (Just War Against Terrorism)

      The journalist Andrew Sullivan AND facts and possibilities.

      6: There is no solution to the naming or correct discussion of "terrorists" when the point of "terrorism" is to kill innocent civilians. A terrorist, by definition, is one who sows terror.
      Elshtain 3
      Jean Betlike Elshtain, Laura Spelman Rockefeller Professor of Social and Political Ethics, University of Chicago Divinity School, 2003 (Just War Against Terrorism)
      WHAT IS A TERRORIST? This line AND itself is the goal.

      7: Our definition of terrorism distinguishes between the different types of wars. This increases our ability to combat such violence by shifting the activities to alternate courses, reducing the scope of international terrorism
      Ganor 1
      Boaz Ganor, Director of the International Policy Institute for Counter-Terrorism. 2001 (Defining Terrorism: "Is One Man's Terrorist Another Mail's Freedom Fighter?")

      We face an essential AND realization, the better.

      8: The War on Terrorism is not constructed, nor can it be deterred. Our criticisms of the government won't deter those who are ready to strike us. This is analogous to how the reactions to post-WWI did not inevitably produce Nazism, it was a group of people taking over state power independently.
      Elshtain 3
      Jean Betlike Elshtain, Laura Spelman Rockefeller Professor of Social and Political Ethics, University of Chicago Divinity School, 2003 (Just War Against Terrorism)

      Certain critical events in the past remind AND not be deterred.

      9: The acts that we describe are definitionally acts of terror. An attempt to describe them using any other word does not pass judgment on them, but rather legitimizes the acts that they commit
      St. Petersburg Times, 2003
      (Philip Gailey, "Word choice matters in Mid East Reporting," August 31, Lexis)

      For me, it's not a hard call. AND act of terrorism.

      Recognizing the Reality of Terrorism Allows us to Establish Concrete Initiatives that Strike At Their Supporters – To Do Nothing Ensures our Destruction
      Hannity 2004

      The aff’s endorsement of a feminist act that focuses on discourse and textuality makes the transformation of the social impossible and trades off with a better form of feminism grounded in historical materialism.

      Ebert, Prof in the College of Arts and Sciences @ University at Albany-State University of New York, 96 [Teresa L. received her Ph.D. at Minnesota, Ludic Feminism and After: Postmodernism, Desire, and Labor in Late Capitalism, 4-8]

      These Calls That Reorient Social Norms Fundamentally Alter Policy – Ignoring This Fixture in Debate Posits Their Aff as Nonfalsifiable and Does Not Truly Test the Nature of Policy
