I feel that anger can be a good moral motivation because without it how did america win all the wars we have had and how did people win battles or fights without it.

I accept your challenge as to debate on why anger CANNOT be a Moral Motivation. Anger can lead people to make stupid mistakes, and wouldn't one rather have peace? One can say that anger tends to fuel the thirst for revenge/justice, but what with what cost? What are you willing to pay? All of those life's lost in wars? Haven't you seen anger drives you crazy and beyond control, so that your would preform stupid "mistakes" than rather if you were normal or peaceful? Anger drives people to commit more harm, however they are under the influence that it is helping them to do good, when in reality, it means destroying one thing for another. I would also like to state that anger can be good in specific situations, but carrying out events during those situations are usually a life/death situation/
