Operation protective edge has been going on for over three weeks right now, should israel continue the operation and why?
Rational_Thinker9119

Con

Operation Protective Edge is causing the unneeded deaths of innocent women and children. They could do pin-point shots, or put troops on the ground instead of shellings and this would lower the the civilian death rate; this does not occur with regards to Protective Edge. Since one should never continue the unneeded deaths of innocent people, then Isreal should not continue with OPE.

sorry hit the button to soon.

Look at the top debaters, how they frame an argument and present a debate. I love choosenwolf for his debates and presenting them. Lifemeansgodisgod is great for looking at what not to debate (you can see him off my debate list). doomswatter is great at debates as well, though he usually responds.

Generally you present a term or claim "there is a god" "its wrong for isreal to bomb pal". . . if there is a term that might not be clear, quote it or reference it, Set the terms for winning, or bop. . .

Sorry about that. We get a lot of people just popping in asking for an argument for or against something, only to never return once they have it.

Well actually im not, but it's nice that you automatically assume the worst.
It's just that it's my first debate here, and im not familiar with the mechanics yet, i thought that text box was a description of the debate, and i was wrong.

He's most likely trying to have someone else write a homework essay for him.
