Pro has full burden of proof to show that WWII was a moral crusade to save the Jewish people.

Now I will break down why the war was not to save the Jewish people.

-"The Final Solution", better known as the Holocaust started on December 18th 1941. It came into full swing in 1942 [1].
-Britain and France declared war on Germany a full two years earlier in 1939 [2].
-The United States declared war on Germany and Japan on December 7th 1941, 11 days before the Final Solution began [3]

World War 2 had been raging for well over two years before the Holocaust began. Even the USA became involved before the Holocaust. Therefore WWII was not a moral crusade because the war preceded the Holocaust.

The War was not only a moral crusade just because of the how it saved the Jews from extinction, but also as if there was no World War 2 Germany would have done more damage to the world.
The United Nations would have not been formed and the results of that would have been catastrophic.

Pro has changed his argument from "WW2 a moral crusade because if there wasn't world war two Hitler would have completed his mission in wiping out all people who we Jewish." To "The War was not only a moral crusade just because of the how it saved the Jews from extinction."

The resolution cannot be changed just because one is not able to defend it.

I extend all arguments.
