Thanks Nygdan Nice choice of topic
, good luck to you ConfederacyOfUnity (Although you probably wont need it
). Here goes:
Preemptive War is, as you most likely already know, when a country attacks another country if it has good reason to believe that it may be attacked by
them in the near future.
So my first focus in this will be to show that the USA do or are beginning to believe Iran is a threat to the nations security. This will inevitably
leads me to refer to the USA – Iraq war, where the USA believed Iraq to have long range, deployable weapons which, according to them, could be used
against the USA and it's citizens.
Then I intend draw focus as to why the USA may believe a preemptive war in Iran is needed by looking at what reason Iran may giving to the USA which
are causing so much concern. Reasons such as the apparent need for uranium enrichment despite other sources of energy being both available and offered
to them, and their unwillingness to have proper talks with US negotiators about their use of uranium.
My opponent will most likely dismiss some of the nuclear weapons claims as both being wrongs and verging on paranoia. He may also try to justify
Iran's enrichment of uranium, a smart way for him to do would be to argue the major costs another war would impose. But then again trying to second
guess him all the time will get me nowhere, and I'll see what he has to say first before I begin the main bulk of the argument.
But simply put: The USA has done it before, and they will do it again.
