This is about fighting terrorism, why should CON win?

The whole point of debating is to actually write the debate, not to post videos, or to forfeit every round, but judging from the title alone, CON should definitely win. We have powerful, violent weapons which we should not use carelessly or to gain power.

An easy win for Bifurcations. The opponent never responds.

@DHS15608 I believe that ground support is needed but invasion no. The problem with the way this particular motion has been worded is this would not be an invasion given that it is authorised access by the Iraqi government. The level of that support, the use of that support and the implementation of that support is not something I have considered in depth so I don't know my position on it. I took this debate to get pracice for setting mechanisms etc in IR debates before I go to the european championships.

@Bifurcations This is just a curious question, do you really believe that a ground invasion should be launched to fight ISIS? or are you just arguing for the other side in this debate?
