Democracy Impact




Aerospace solves democracy- its key to National Security Strategy which promotes peacekeeping


USAF, 2k [United States Air Force, “Organization and Employment of Aerospace Power,” Air Force Doctrine Document 2, February 17, 2000, http://www.iwar.org.uk/military/resources/aspc/pubs/afdd2.pdf, DA 7/15/11]//RS
Peacetime engagement anchors aerospace power to the basic objectives of the National Security Strategy—protecting the nation and its vital interests. A key aim of this strategy is the promotion of long-term international stability. Stability, in turn, establishes conditions necessary for promoting continued democratic development worldwide. Such development is fostered by maintaining permanent overseas presence, participating in combined and joint exercises, conducting aviation advisory assistance, and working with allies on security arrangements.

Democracy solves extinction and all your impacts


Carnegie Commission, 95 [Carnegie Commission, October 1995, http://wwics.si.edu/subsites/ccpdc/pubs/di/1.htm]
Nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons continue to proliferate. The very source of life on Earth, the global ecosystem, appears increasingly endangered. Most of these new and unconventional threats to security are associated with or aggravated by the weakness or absence of democracy, with its provisions for legality, accountability, popular sovereignty, and openness. The experience of this century offers important lessons. Countries that govern themselves in a truly democratic fashion do not go to war with one another. They do not aggress against their neighbors to aggrandize themselves or glorify their leaders. Democratic governments do not ethnically "cleanse" their own populations, and they are much less likely to face ethnic insurgency. Democracies do not sponsor terrorism against one another. They do not build weapons of mass destruction to use on or to threaten one another. Democratic countries form more reliable, open, and enduring trading partnerships. In the long run they offer better and more stable climates for investment. They are more environmentally responsible because they must answer to their own citizens, who organize to protest the destruction of their environments. They are better bets to honor international treaties since they value legal obligations and because their openness makes it much more difficult to breach agreements in secret. Precisely because, within their own borders, they respect competition, civil liberties, property rights, and the rule of law, democracies are the only reliable foundation on which a new world order of international security and prosperity can be built.

Democracy solves extinction- Democratic nations must answer to their own citizens

Disaster Relief & Humanitarian Aid




Aerospace solves disaster relief operations & humanitarian aid- It supports ISR info systems


USAF, 2k [United States Air Force, “Organization and Employment of Aerospace Power,” Air Force Doctrine Document 2, February 17, 2000, http://www.iwar.org.uk/military/resources/aspc/pubs/afdd2.pdf, DA 7/15/11]//RS
Information systems provide timely and vital warning and monitoring of potential crises through intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR). Aerospace power provides a national response for13 safeguarding human life through evacuation, humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations, or peacekeeping reinforcement when aggression or natural disasters cause physical destruction, privation, or hardship.

Prolif Impact




Aerospace solves prolif- Overflight verification reports each country’s testing or employment of weapon systems


USAF, 2k [United States Air Force, “Organization and Employment of Aerospace Power,” Air Force Doctrine Document 2, February 17, 2000, http://www.iwar.org.uk/military/resources/aspc/pubs/afdd2.pdf, DA 7/15/11]//RS
Arms Control Operations: Arms control operations limit and reduce the number and types of weapons threatening stability within a region. They encompass arms control verification that entails collecting, processing, and reporting of data indicating testing or employment of proscribed weapon systems, including country of origin and location, weapon and payload identification, and event type. The Open Skies Treaty, signed by 27 nations in 1992, allows overflight verification of each country’s conventional military posture and confirms that signatory nations are in compliance with the Conventional Forces in Europe Treaty.
