New to US-China-Taiwan Issues?

I stumbled across a website today that I thought might be of use to some who are new to US-China-Taiwan issues (or just enjoy a good debate). It is called the IDEA Debatabase and is intended for use with debating teams. There are quite a few interesting issues listed with pros and cons of each issue presented in a fairly balanced manner and some sources at the bottom for more information. They have one or more topics for each of the three countries under discussion here.
  • Is the USA a threat to world stability or a political force for good? (link)
  • Does China give the rest of the world reasons for fear, in political, economic or social terms? Or is the 'Terror from the East' merely a myth? (link)
  • Should Taiwan declare independence? (link)
Take a look.
