Withdrawing Soldiers from Iraq
II. Our soldiers shouldn’t be in Iraq in the first place.
1. Though the atrocities of the Hussein regime were well known, this was never our fight.
2. After the invasion, many other military units were sent to Iraq—at least twenty-one non-US units existed in the country in 2007 ( A. US presence is no longer necessary.
3. Many attempts have been made to hand the security issue over to the Iraqis; they can either step up to the plate or not (Shadid, 2009).
III. Some argue that because we started the invasion, it is our responsibility to see it through.
1. This argument holds merit, but it has its limits.
A. After so many years, the Iraqis should be able to handle their own security.
B. The majority of the population is quite glad to have Saddam’s regime gone; our job has to end sometime.
2. Our effectiveness has diminished greatly, if it ever existed with any strength.
A. This is according to policy makers and soldiers on the ground alike (Khanna, 2009).
3. It is also argued that regional instability would increase with a withdrawal, but most experts agree that Pakistan and other unoccupied territories pose the real problems (Global Security.
IV. Neither the Iraqi people nor the soldiers think our continued presence there is doing any good.
1. Most Iraqis, even those oppressed by Saddam’s regime, do not have a fond view of the United States.
2. Soldiers in Iraq see their lack of direction and their inefectiveness as detrimental both to the country they are occupying and the international image of the United States (Khanna, 2009).

The most effective arguments are included in the counter-argument paragraph, in the middle of the essay. These can be touched upon in the introduction and conclusion paragraphs as well. Such placement reinforces these ideas, as well as weakening the counter-arguments.
