The United States are the Real Terrorists
Debate Rounds (3)
This is pretty much my argument, and this is both a rebuttal for your argument and my presentation: There, indeed, was an attack at September 11, 2001. The 2 towers collapsed. However, my only argument is that we NEVER caused that. We did NOT strike. We did NOT fly the plane into the tower and make it MUCH more vulnerable to collapse, seeing as that also supported the tower.
The U.S. Government are also terrorists because of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The two were blatant acts of terrorism.
Drones are terrorism. "What's a bigger threat to human society, B.A.E. Systems or homemade I.E.D.s? Remote controlled bomb killing off human life or man with homemade bomb committing suicide?" Are the people who are defenselessly trying to defend their country the terrorists? Or the people behind the big guns the terrorists?
Barely any Muslims agree to 9/11 but they are punished. Yet, nearly every American I know supports the War on Terror.)
"Okay, yes we didn't cause that. But there are no reasons to use it as a justification to kill hundreds of THOUSANDS, even millions in Iraq, of innocent people from both sides. In 9/11 roughly killed three thousand people. Three thousand people. That is NOTHING compared to the amount of people the War in the Middle East has caused of innocent people who had no affiliation with 9/11 besides race and religion."
Please cite sources. I don't believe that the U.S. assassinated millions of citizens from Iraq after 9/11. I'm not doubting this, but please, no fraudulent lies.
"The U.S. Government are also terrorists because of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The two were blatant acts of terrorism."
Ah! This one was conducted by the U.S. during World War II. The U.S's intention for this was to make Japan surrender during the war. That may have been terrorism. However, this is in the 19th century, when someone else ruled. We are now under Obama's authority.
This was conducted by the original army. THEY are the terrorists. They agreed. However, to this day, they are PROBABLY no longer alive. We did not even expect these atomic bombings!
"Drones are terrorism. "What's a bigger threat to human society, B.A.E. Systems or homemade I.E.D.s? Remote controlled bomb killing off human life or man with homemade bomb committing suicide?"

These drones aren't used to murder civilians, but for war. In war, you have to defend yourself. So, they use these.
By the way, please don't be semantical.
I await my opponent's next set of arguments.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct goes to con due to pros forfeit. Spelling/grammar and sources tied. Arguments go to con since pro did not make a single one. Made no attempt what soever to prove her case. And no, Pro, simply stating that some act is an act of terrorism does not make it so. For example you believe that the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki were acts of terrorism. Yet the only argument for this case is by stating that this was an act of terrorism. That's an extremely poor way to debate someone on any issue.
