Good morning/afternoon/evening,

I would like to first thank my opponent for joining me here today/tonight for this debate and any onlookers for partially judging this debate. I would also like to eventually thank any voters who vote for me in this debate.

Now my points:

1) After the 9/11 attacks the U.S. was fully justified to attack Afghanistan because it was an act of self-defence. There was viable proof that Afghanistan harbored several terrorists that conspired in the 9/11 plot, therefore the attack was justified.

2) Besides harboring several terrorists, Afghanistan was ruled by a government that was radically dangerous to our own national security. The Taliban were known oppressors of their people and it was in our place to help them.

3) bin Laden is a necessary evil to eradicate that justifies the invasion.

Therefore the war is justifiable
Thank you.

yes, i agree...this topic is way too narrow. If you just came up with this topic to get an easy win, i am dissapointed. Also, what is the point of debating the same topic twice. I will be back to vote, but i will vote based on who came up with the most interesting arguements, and worked with everything they had....saqarous, i look forward to seeing new arguements for the war, not ones that are constantly repeated

GOOD LUCK :-)

I have to say, this debate is heavily skewed towards the pro. I wouldn't mind debating if the resolution gave some more ground to the con.
