QuantumAchilles
Forthelulz

From Agamemnon taking advantage of the fact that Helen his brother's wife had been kidnapped by Paris the son of Priam, to wage war upon Troy to the Romans deeming themselves superior to other cultures to justify their outrageous imperialism, from the USA using the threat of the Soviet Union as a pretext to invest more and more amounts of money into its military development to the current war on terror. From the 2996 deaths from 9/11 used to cause 500,000 deaths in Iraq to the propaganda that fu...

Is the USA a terrorist nation?

QuantumAchilles
TheSensibleConservative

The position I want to defend is that the USA and its allies, have taken advantage of various terrorist attacks that have occurred in recent times, such as 9/11, the 2005 london bombings and the tragedy that took place in Nice, France, to ignite hatred, racism and fanatical nationalism against the middle east, in order to justify a military response that is distorted by politicians who make it seem as a justifiable intervention in the name of democracy, when in reality, these genocidal invasions...

CHASFLASH

ISIL- The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant- to be around thirty to fifty thousand people. The wikipedia entry regarding the Military of ISIL makes a great summary of all of the information we have regarding the presence and operational forces of ISIL.

To clarify, the Pro (me) will be arguing that the phrase has been misused in society and is tossed around too much while the Con side can argue that the word is used correctly and is correctly applied to each scenario I bring.The definition of racism is: prejudice, discrimination, or antago...

The United Nations becoming more like the League of Nations

Yousefator
Hayd

Lets face the facts. The United Nations has done absolutely nothing effective in the past twenty years. It has failed to stop TWO Iraq invasions, failed to stop the invasion of Afghanistan, failed to prevent the killer pollution of the Baltic, failed to protect Syrians, failed to resolve the China - Philippines island issue. Do not respond with resolutions that they passed or promises made, I want ACTION. And I see None....
