I can only use Wikipedia because my school blocks other sites. I'll leave it up to you to choose how the war starts. For the purpose of this debate, lets say Mexico's drug war is finished.

Please don't respond till this weekend I won't be able to respond till Monday.
1. My mexican arguement wasn't refuted.
2. Australia is currently stationing U.S. troops there. So I'd dobt that the U.S. would let Australia do anything and Australia is allies with everyone. I mean honnestly when was the last time that Austriala went to war after loosing its Dominion title.
3. Small country easy to invade.
4. Hasn't gone to war after loosing the title of dominion.
5. Never on the winning side of a war.

My Mexican argument wasn't refuted.
Yeah, it was. I said for this debate, there is no drug war.

Australia
They were in WWII, which we won.

I was under the assumption that this was a no-holds barred war, no allies, just war.
Please clarify this for me

Uh... no where and no time did you say there wasn't a drug war for this debate
Australia
They were in WWII, which we won.
At that time Australia was a dominion of Britain. Which means they're independent but Britain can still influence decision.

It is war but the normal things that make this world go round still make this world go round.

Said this at the end of round 2.

Since this is round 4 and we havent even started the war yet, why dont we start a new debate and start it then?

And when we do start, are we gonna use allies like the USA, or is it just us? Just wondering.
