Debate Summary

10 Years Later, Was the Iraq War Worth It?

The Iraq War was an armed conflict in Iraq that consisted of two phases. The first was an invasion of Ba'athist Iraq starting on 20 March 2003 by an invasion force led by the United States. It was followed by a longer phase of fighting, in which an insurgency emerged to oppose coallition forces and the newly formed Iraqi government. The U.S. completed its withdrawal of military personnel in December 2011. However, the Iraqi insurgency continues and has caused thousands of fatalities in 2012.

"The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting." ― Sun Tzu "Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win" ― Sun Tzu

"What is essential in war is victory, not prolonged operations."

"There is no instance of a country having benefited from prolonged warfare." ~ Sun Tzu

Not at all. Innocent lives taken away, people suffering, and the war is still ongoing, making people infuriated, ready to retaliate; and all for what? profits?

The economy has crashed, people losing jobs, and education is declining.

The war was not worth it. Only the greedy rich benefit from this war.

"Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind." John F. Kennedy
