I’ve always avoided the debate of the war because I don’t think i know enough about politics (unless it involves China coz then I might know a little more). But some how I found myself intrigued by this debate (warning! it’s 149 pages last checked) I think it’s because the debate is carried on by people from many different countries including: US, canada, germany, france, ireland, england, greece, and even Pakistan. With the variety of backgrounds, they explore great many aspects of this war. Most of the time they give educated arguments as well as good support. I can apply much of what I’ve learned from the Internal Relations class to their speech. It’s also interesting that the number of people for the war is about the same as those who are against it. So the debate is hot.
I like this quote:
‘The Statue of Liberty is no longer saying ‘Give me your poor, your tired, your huddled masses.’ She’s got a baseball bat and she’s yelling, “You want a piece of me?”‘ – USA debater
as well as this one:
‘No matter how unjust Bush Administration is, you probably wouldn’t like me bombing your shopping malls.’ – Pakistan debater
The art of free speech! I’m entertained. I’ve always stayed neutral about this war. I can relate to both sides of the debate so I’m keeping my mouth shut. It’s more interesting to read different view points (and the way they bashing each other LOL). Lastly take a bushism test! To study for the test, you can read these.
