It is imperative that the current President of the United States of America to pull out of Iraq and to not even think about entering Iran. He has not only cost the United States nearly $1 trillion, but he has made men and women make the ultimate sacrifice, that the United States does not need to have happen. It is not only in the better judgment of me, but for the people, that we should pull out of Iraq. We should worry about our problems here at home before we can worry about the others in the world.

***This is my first time to debate on here, I just found this website today, so I hope someone will take me on in a challenge, I realize that my debate is not structured at all right now, but wait :)***

Clearly Chickenman does not know what this debate is about, or does not speak English. I will just reiterate my stance on the War in Iraq and a possible threaten to Iran.

Iraq war has been a big blunder to the US Military and a big blow and set back not only to the military, but to the people of America as well as peoples from Iraq and the Middle East.

A war with Iran would not only prove that our military is not capable of fighting an unconventional war with urban warfare, it would also put our country more into a deficit and more in debt that we do not need.

part of being patriotic is political dissent. Go back to high school and learn about your rights as an American citizen. I know that I can be patriotic by standing with soldiers, but against the war. It is a losing battle, nearly 4000 have died on our side, how many innocent victims have died? Almost $3 trillion has been spent! wow yeah spitting in the faces of our soldiers? don't ever say that about me, I have a lot of friends in Iraq, I support them 100% percent. I just don't believe we will come out as victors in this damned war. I know people have died in Iraq. And I am very sorry for your loss, just remember, this war is PREEMPTIVE not PREVENTATIVE!

Ok any one who votes for pro is a pecker head because he didn't even debate. This is a vote on the debate not opinions. And lastly the war in Iraq is not a loosing battle. Anyone who says it is, is not patriotic. They are a shame to America. And you are spitting in the faces of our soldiers and telling the family's of people who have lost a loved one in Iraq (like me) Their loved one has died in vain. You disgust me you freaks!

If the war were to cost 20 million an hour that would amount to 175 trillion dollars per year. Get your facts srtaight.

I agree with you brother, the war is costing 20 million an hour, thats roughly 6,000 a second. We simply can't fix the economic problems until we leave the middle east

Kels, I applaud your husband and all troops. I am sorry if my statement sounded like i was saying the ultimate sacrifices they are paying is bad. Sorry, but, what I was trying to get at is that we do not need to send our soldiers (as brave and honorable) as they are, into battle, especially a battle that was Preemptive instead of Preventative. We had no legal backing, nor did we have any backing from the International community except our great friends across the pond. I have a few friends in Iraq who are having to sacrifice time to grow up here, but they are graduates from the military academies and are doing their duty. You should hear the things they tell me about the war and how much they hate it and wish it would have never happened. I have a friend who has been blown up 2 times! 2 times in 2 months! and he gets told "your going back to Iraq" what the hell is that? so the ultimate sacrifice I really mean is the death that some have to pay for our sins. Do our men and women have to pay for our president's sins? we should put the blood on him, not them :)

Most of those men and women are happy to make sacrifices and to go to war. My husband and all of his unit certainly were. Out of the 80 guys in his unit , they all wanted to go and all support a President that doesn't make their sacrifices worthless by us pulling out of Iraq. I am sure we all want to avoid a war with Iran , but seeing as they keep trying to instigate things that could prove to be difficult. Hopefully they will stop and then we won't have to go to war.
