Uranium is much safer in the point that thousands of soldiers are not dying over its need. While American lives are at risk on while trying to obtain this oil, smarter Americans are investing in Uranium that is being drilled right here at home.

I thank my opponent for this interesting debate.

"smarter Americans are investing in Uranium that is being drilled right here at home."

--> Firstly, America accounts for only a small proportion of the Worlds Uranium. There are few places where Uranium is found. America's addiction to oil has shown the scale of fuels required. To that end, America will eventuallly:

A) Run out of Uranium and urn to foreign countries (E.g .Iran)

B) Uranium mining will become cheaper abroad

Either way, Uranium will be imported eventually. Let's compare the two:

- When countries have oil, that's all they have, oil.

- When countries are extracting Uranium, and subsequently producing Uranium, they suddenly have the ability to make nuclear weapons.

It is clear Oil countries are less dangerous than Uranium ones.

"While American lives are at risk on while trying to obtain this oil"

--> The motives for Uranium are the same as oil. Uranium will be fought over.

And I'm a proponent of advancing nuclear technology. Of course, there IS a way to refute this, give me a bit.
