I thank Mr. Hunton for accepting this debate.

The affirmative must prove that the US has just cause to go to war with North Korea.

I believe the US should not go to war with N. Korea because:

1. N. Korea is not a threat being that they are isolated from virtually the entire international community. So they have no legitamate allies to protect them if they did want to start a war.

2. N. Korea has not given any reason that I know of for the US to need to go to war with them.

3. Anything accomplished by going to war with N. Korea would not be worth the thousands of lives lost and families destroyed as a result.

Thank you Mr. Nasworthy for this opportunity to debate with you!
First off, North Korea does not have any guaranteed allies but it is thought to believe that Russia & China would back them up if anything was to ever happen.
Also, I can almost promise you that they would force S. Korea to back them up too.
So, N. Korea possess an emanate threat to the U.S.
They also have been threatening us for many years and are waiting for the right time to hit us.
They have missiles, that's granted, and they are letting us know by dropping them off in the ocean.
NYC, Chicago, Boston, St. Louis, Los Angeles and Philadelphia are easy targets.
And trust me, they are crazy enough to do it.
Oh, btw... The U.N. Security Council passed a resolution encouraging inspections of North Korean ships suspected of transporting weapons and prohibiting the refueling or re supplying of the ships.
Now that that's cleared up.
You say, "Anything accomplished by going to war with N. Korea would not be worth the thousands of lives lost and families destroyed as a result." Well, this MAY be true, but, if they drop missiles on us, there will be more lost lives than WWII its self.
Kim Jong-il is a pshychoand it would NOT surprise me if he started dropping bombs off on N. America!
I look forward to your response.

This is ridiculous. So any country that doesn't get on with the US and has missiles should be invaded because they might just use them on you? Ha. What about France? They have missiles and god knows they don't like America. Going to go to war with them too? And believe me, the US would certainly think twice about starting a war with Russia and China...

I wish the US government was as honest in their motives as Nags is.

Hunton: "it would NOT surprise me if he started dropping bombs off on N. America!"
I think it might cause you to raise an eyebrow at least.

Nags, the things you say never cease to get a laugh out of me. You could be a pitchman, seriously; because you can take the worst sounding thing, and sell it like it's gold. :D

"Alright; I was going to say, if one nuclear bomb killed over 90 million people, we might as well bother shooting ourselves. :)"

Nonsense. If 90 million people in the Middle East died, then a lot of foreign problems (ie. Iraq, Iran, terrorists) would be immediately solved and then the US could just swoop in and take the oil.

BAM. Look at all the benefits.
