This debate will be about the War in Iraq and aftermath.
I'll be on the side that thinks it was a mistake.

Round 1: Acceptance
Round 2: Arguments
Round 3: Rebuttals


One can definately say there was a horrible, destructive aftermath. But was going into Iraq a mistake? No.

After 9/11, under Bush, the region was very secure, and the West was doing as can be expected in terms of Islamic terrorism.

The worldwide number of annual terrorist deaths has more than quadrupled since President Barack Obama was inaugurated in January 2009.

Deaths from terrorism increased 80 percent last year to an all-time record of 32,658 people killed, compared to 18,111 in 2013. The number is up about 426 percent from the 7,654 killed by terrorists in 2008 under President Bush, according to the latest report from ‘Vision of Humanity.’


The problem is...we pulled out, and then we helped oust Muammar Gaddafi from Libya and Hosni Mobarak from Egypt, 2 of the biggest blunders of the Obama/Clinton legacy.

Even U.S. military leaders said pulling out of Iraq allowed and caused ISIS to rise to power. Essentially, Obama and Clinton created ISIS, whether on purpose or inadvertantly. The madness and chaos in the Middle East is because Obama and Clinton either:

1)Are anti-American moles


2)Horrible war strategists


Here is video evidence of him stating over and over that he ended the war in Iraq. It went so horribly wrong that later he insinuated that it "wasn't he that made the decision".

(Video Proof)

Military leaders warned Obama not to pull out of Iraq.

And it's typical Obama strategy...

He chose to bring in refugees in mass that the FBI and military leadership told him could not be vetted and posed a serious threat to the national security of America.


In Obama's America 2016(but made in 2012), Dinesh Dsouza accused Obama of being an anticolonialist and predicted what Obama would do. Obama tried to shut Dsouza up, and had Dsouza thrown in jail for 8 months because of this movie.

In this clip Dsouza talks later about how he guessed it right. It wasn't a guess...-

And now we have Hillary's America. The Democratic leadership are preparing to steal the greatest thing the world has ever produced.

Hillary's America-
