I don't think that the war on terrorism should continue because so many people will die, and lots will be innocent.

Iran is an immediate national security threat. It is not only a terror state (terrorizing its own populace), but also the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard-Qods Force-Hezbollah axis is active worldwide, maintaining cells in the United States and Western Europe, bombing synagogues in South America, undermining the governments of Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt, and operating to seriously destabilize the government of Yemen, the importance of which was succinctly stated by Jonathan Paris of King's College: "If Yemen is set on fire, the gulf will burn."

My opponent, has yet to say anything.

Those in the counter terrorist field have known for years that Iran plays both sides against the middle. In the past, they have supported al-Qaida when they felt their interests have merited it, they have given some sanctuary in Iran, they have allowed transit of Iran, they back a Sunni extremist movement Hamas in Palestine and, as Amos Gilad of the Israeli Ministry of Defense stated, they "continue to support al-Qaida." It does not mean they are in control of al-Qaida or the reverse, but it means what is commons sense: when Sunni extremism and Shiite extremism mesh, namely to fight the United States, Europe and Israel, they will work together and are thus a combined threat.

If the urge toward pacifism is not universal, then the pacifist who does exist becomes a prey species.

If we surrender to the islamic terrorists , the wrong people would certainly die. We should kill them everytime they raise their ugly heads.
