why are our ties with foreigns a problem to the US?

It took me a while to understand the question, and a long time thinking about weather I wanted to participate in this debate or not, but I've come to a conclusion. I'm assuming round 1 is acceptance, so if you could possibly explain your question a little more at the beginning of your next debate, that would be great.

All right, Pro forfeits, here we go.

Our ties with "forgeins" can be a problem to the U.S, for example a catastrophe like WW2, where at first we weren't involved, but when the Japanese bombed pearl harbor. We went to war, and had to start drafting people into the army, and that's a problem. The cold war, if the U.S fired at Russia, or Russia fired at the U.S, we would have a nuclear war. Nuclear bombs on our own country, that would be a problem. Its pretty clear why sometimes our ties with "forgeins" can result in problems.

Vote Con :D
