Pro

The U.S. should take military action against Iran for the following reasons:

1. Iran is a great threat to the U.S.
2. Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is reportedly plotting with Hugo Chavez to overthrow the United States economy and to overthrow the United States.

Are we, as Americans, the people who will let other countries put us down? Since 1776, when America first got its freedom, Americans have been famous for their stubbornness. Will we forget the traditions of our Four Fathers?

NO.

The United States should take military action against Iran.
Korezaan

Con

All I need to do as the CON is prove the PRO wrong.

So uhh, here goes.

1) O rly. Where's your evidence? Or reasoning?
2) O rly. Said who? Where's your evidence and reasoning?

Your stubborness argument is wrong on three levels.
-First, it doesn't apply here, if at all. Iran isn't trying to put us down.
-I'd like to point out that it's "forefathers", not "four fathers".
-Second, that doesn't mean that we have to be a country with indoctrinated beliefs. A strong country is one that takes in new ideas and new facts into consideration for new and improved beliefs. That's why our forefathers made it possible for us to amend the Constitution, because they knew that at some point down the line, some things would have to change.
-Third, Americans weren't known for their stubbornness until recently. Our forefathers were known for their intellectual insight and moral judgement, not "stubbornness".

NO.

The United States should NOT take military action against Iran

PRO's plan failed. He gives you reasons that we should take military action against Iran, and I have proved them to be false. That is sufficient to vote CON, as all CON has to do is prove the PRO false.

The Iranian president was reported to be plotting against Hugo Chavez in the November 2007 issue of The New Yorker. The CON has no apparent argument!!! WOW... I just disproved half of his statement(not argument)
