Hello! This is a topic pulled from a debate tournament that I had the pleasure of observing, and I think it would be interesting to actually argue on this topic.

Allow me to lay some rules, any argument to these rules is open for discussion in the comments:
1) No profanity or slang, no personal attacks of any kind.
2) Evidence must be AT THE LEAST accompanied by its author or speaker.
3) Moral arguments must be present in at least one round.
4) Logical fallacies MAY be called but do not provide grounds for disqualification or nullification of an argument.
5) First round of debate will only entail the acceptance of challenge. The second round will be used for opening statements/cases, the third and fourth for attacks/rebuttals, and the fifth will be used in crystallizing the round.
6) Keep in mind that opinions expressed in this round may not reflect the opinions of the speaker, and that this debate is not meant to offend or upset either party or any additional parties such as commenters, debate.org staff, et cetera.

I'm excited to debate with you!

Let me begin with a little history lesson. The instability of the Middle East was directly caused by the Soviet Union and the United States fighting proxy battles in the region in an event known as The Cold War. The United States Of America armed rebels with powerful military hardware to fight the totalitarian government puppet government that the soviets had created. When the rebels toppled the puppet government the rebels ended up being even worse than their predecessors. This cycle continued for a long while after the events of The Cold War. Although some countries in the middle east have found their way to democracy many still struggle to find their way.
