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.

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).

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.

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.

    Copying and pasting is obviously not working. Please re-post your entire outline, but you'll need to type it in by hand, not copy/paste.

    I wish I had time to type it all by hand again but I am at work and it would take too much time here.

    II. Personal loss of life and limbs
    A.4,266 dead as of April 6, 2009. As of April 6, 2009 there were 31,102 wounded in action. Of these 9,477 required medical air transport.

Force may only be used if specifically approved by the Security Council or proportionate force may be used in self defence when a threat is imminent. In the latter case, in the words of the Nuremberg Tribunal, “preventive action in foreign territory is justified only in case of ‘an instant and overwhelming necessity for self-defense, leaving no choice of means, and no moment of deliberation’.” [31]

    Writeteacher it is above this one.

    There is not a full outline there. The copy/paste routine isn't working.

    Try the email -- watch the spelling!!

  • English - , Wednesday, April 8, 2009 at 2:59pm

    Ok, emailed from a military email

    I find it disarming to see Angela is writing about us not being in Iraq, for she is in the military.
