Should we take out Iran
Debate Rounds (5)
Also, Iran has proven itself to be a major threat to global security, through its funding of Hezbollah and Hamas.
The past and present Administrations believe there is no way we can get ourselves out of this financial mess without taxing our citizens and companies into the ground, damaging our economy even further. There is another way, one that will preserve our position as the world's first and only hyperpower, stimulatetheeconomy in a profound way, and remove the threat of Iran to global security.
We must wage war on Iran.
Why has nobody ever thought of this before? Our military IS NOT a global police force, despite what our recent Administrations have believed. It is an armed force to protect our liberty and interests, and to project our power throughout the globe.
If the operation is successful,we get at least $15 trillion in income from selling the captured oil. This can put a major dent in our national debt.
We could first institute a blockade of the Gulf of Oman, and take oil tankers sailing from or to it as prizes. This will a) increase morale of our Sailors, as they stand to personally benefit from successful completion of their mission, b) boost our economy as the Sailors will spend their prize money when they return home, and c) weaken Iran's economy.
We can aim our nukes at Russia to prevent them from interfering.
Once Iran's economy has been sufficiently weakened, we can blitzkrieg them using our Marines, and send in the Army to occupy their oil fieldswhileour oil companies take over extraction.
We have the largest and most capable armed forces in the world. We can do this easily. The money spent on this operation will easily pay for itself more than a thousand times over.
We can count on Israel to assist us, as with Iran firmly underUS control, Palestinian terrorists will have no more support. Then proper peacemaking efforts between them can take place.
Iran is a terrorist-supporting dictatorship with no respect for human lives...it must be stopped. With Iran out of the picture, global terrorists will have a much more difficult time acquiring funding.
Sometimes, peace requires war.
take a chance make a change. sign a peace treaty and stop fighting.
Iran's funding of terrorism is costing far more lives than a war would.
Assassinating the Ayatollah will throw Iran into chaos, and a US invasion would be welcomed to restore order.
As it stands, Iran is seeking the destruction of our major ally in the Middle East, Israel, and is funding the Palestinian terror cells. Whatever your view on the Palestinian Question is, terrorism is not the solution.
If Iran is removed from the world stage, actual peacemaking can be done between the Israelis and the Palestinians, instead of their current war of attrition.
