l AM pro for the following statement ^
Mainly people will argue that they are against war ,and they are pacifist and what not, Yet they still congratulate our so called * heroes *for going to war.
Firstly as a British nation we are taught to encourage our soldiers to fight for our landmarks and the Taliban yet we are allowing these soldiers to go out evoke and kill, thousands of young children and babies?. Many soldiers get hurt and compensated, others unfortunately die , yet why do we have to sympathise with these soldiers when they die and it be branded all over the media? yet they are out in Iraq on the Taliban's landmark killing thousands of innocent civilians!

1. It is a CHOICE to go to war
2.Many hold an explanation for why usually it being racist or immoral
3. Yes some do want to be known as a hero and fight for there country- but its us equally contradictory
If we stopped encouraging war and these soldiers , maybe the governments will stop being so stupid and open up there eyes to the bigger picture

I would like to first point out the flawed resolutio
"lets not worship our British soldiers" implies that we are both British.

Explanation is the word our. It means belonging to us; or of us (http://en.wiktionary.org...)

Sense, I am not British the soldiers could not possible be mine and thus flawed resolution.

Point 2) It is a choice to go to war my opposition says
Well as obvisouly that is flawed as well. Reason being it is the countries choice to go to war. The soldier enlists to help defend his country. It is the countries choice whether or not to use him and actually fight and go to war.

Point3) Want to be known as a hero and fight for there country but its us equally contradictory
I do not understand my oppositions 3rd point at all except that she is saying that people go to war to be heroes and to fight for there country. Patriotism is bad?

Point 4) Stop encourageing war and soldiers, maybe govs stop being stupid and opening eyes to bigger picture
Please elaborate this point for me so that I may defend it. Also, please explain the big picture, how govs are being stuid.

MY ONLY POINT (I may bring up more in round 2)

Support the soldier not the war. (can elaborate if need be)

Due to time restraints and my lack of planning this is all I have time to post. Thank you for your time.
