Pro

Assad may be a terrible leader, but at least he his tolerant of Christians in Syria. I guarantee you if the rebels win the war, Syria will be run by radical Muslims and there will be a war with Israel and many Christians and Jews will die.
Eliteninja

Con

I accept the challenge.

The Syrian government will get spanked by the US for terrorizing it's "own people".
The US is going to send a thousand cruise (I may be exaggerating) missiles to Syrian targets, including but not limited to chemical warfare labs, Assad's executive mansion, supply depots, missile silos and armories.
The United Nations said to Syria that this action of gassing civilians is unacceptable.
The United States is on the rebels' side to overthrowing Assad.
I heard what's going on in the attack few weeks ago, and the President says that the United States will "have a response".
Assad's a bad guy, and good guys always win, bad guys always lose. Why? Because the good guys vastly outnumber the bad guys. Russia will understand.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

BrighamYoungConservative forfeited this round.
Eliteninja

Con

Wow, how easy is it for my opponent to forfeit. And I have more to say.

Why did the Nazis lose?
Well obviously they made the same mistake as Napoleon.
But there are way more good guys than bad guys as I said, and the Nazis are the bad guys.

"Assad may be a terrible leader, but at least he his tolerant of Christians in Syria. I guarantee you if the rebels win the war, Syria will be run by radical Muslims and there will be a war with Israel and many Christians and Jews will die."

President Obama's plans are probably to create a democracy, not another dictatorship.
Does the dictator tolerate other religons?

Reasons for voting decision: I agree with Pro, but he didn't defend himself. Con went off topic, and discussed why the Syrian Rebels would be forced to be intolerant by the US, when the resolution was that (by default) the Rebels were worse. Con basically said that they were worse, but would be made to pretend they weren't. Even than, Pro's argument was defeated while Con had one left over. Conduct: Pro FF'd. Sources are even. S&G is Con's

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct to Con due to Pro FF. Arguments to Pro since Con didn't really talk about the Syrian Rebels, instead just going on about Obama and his plans.
