Iran. A country that has been the center of attention for more than 50 years, however, in recent times has presented a problem to the economies surrounding in the middle east. By placing a sanction on Iran we would be showing them that we do take up a role as the World Police and we would be possibly taking a threat out of the Middle East. According to the US Department of Defense report released November 21, 2008, Iran is becoming a super-power in the economic world and should be dealt with. ty

First of all, who says that the United States has to become the World Police in the first place. Who died and made America supreme chancellor overlord of the world. Also you mentioned what Iran is causing economic problems in the Middle Eastearn countries but never said how they are causing problems, in which countries their causing problems, or even what those problems where. So for all we know you are making this all up looking for a reason to sanction Iran. For these reason I say vote con.

"First of all, who says that the United States has to become the World Police in the first place." When the framers of our own US Constitution gathered to break from Britain, they stated verbatim within the Federalist Papers, "The US shall become one of the leaders within the free world and spread democracy for the better good as a WORLD POLICE". Clearly the Con's arguement that its not the US's job to protect the world is moot.

If i had more character space I would continue, however,VOTE CON

The Federalist Papers are however not a part of the Constitution and were just the opinions of a few influential people of that time. Also the times have changed and this is no longer the 1700's. Also there is already an international organization to deal with crimes against humanity. It's called the ICC. Also he said its our duty to protect the world. FROM WHAT?!?! He has yet to mention what Iran is doing that is causing "problems" in Middle Eastern Nations or what said "problem" is. Vote Con.
