US should not get involved in syria
first round is acceptince. Good Luck
The US should not get involved in Syria because it will only cause more problems for us. Here is an example of what I mean. When the US got involved in Afghanistan in 1973 they helped them out. But then once Osama Bin Laden came back into role, Afghanistan attacked the US many times including 9/11. If we help Syria it could just cause a terrorist attack on the US. Are people really willing to throw there safety away to help some other country? And the more countries the US intervenes in the more enemy's we will get. So why dont we just worry about our own country and leave the other ones alone.
I’d like to thank my opponent for supplying the resolution and hope this debate will be
Refuting the opening statement -
My opponent begins his opening statement with this claim:
Notice, I could easily counter his statement with my own claim:
Conclusion: Unsupported assumptions are insufficient to meet the burden of proof. I
challenge my opponent to satisfy his burden with evidence, and a solid interpretation thereof.
Refuting the conclusion of the interpreted evidence –
My opponent continues his arguments:
Notice, I could easily counter this claim without much effort:
Conclusion: Osama Bin Laden is not the result of U.S. aid to Afghanistan in 1978. Osama Bin
Laden is the product of religious fundamentalism. [An Interpretation of the Quran, 2004]
The Al Qaeda regime took full credit for the attacks and justified the action as retaliation
for “America's support of Israel, its involvement in the Persian Gulf War and its continued
military presence in the Middle East.” [9/11 Attacks, Oct 10, 2013]
I look forward to the next round of our debate.

Syria is not causing the US any problems right now, how ever getting involved with them could and more then likely will cause the US problems. My point about afghanistan was to show that helping either side of a war could cause us problems of attacks. Another reason why we should not get involved in syria is becuase we don't have the money for it. We need the money here to help the citizens of the US, and we should not be spending anymore money on another war. In the wake of the sequester, the Pentagon does not have much extra cash on hand. According to one report , there are no extra funds in the Defense budget to pay for a bombing campaign against Syria. Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe has stated this concern bluntly, observing that “our military has no money left.” With over 79 percent of Americans demanding a Congressional vote prior to any military operation, the lack of money is problematic for a White House keen to avoid having its plans rejected on Capitol Hill. Unlike the war power questions, there is no dispute among legal scholars that only Congress has the power of the purse, i.e. the exclusive power to raise revenue and appropriate funds.
