So I have to write an argumentative essay on Canadians peacekeeping in foreign countries (Cyprus, Rwanda, Somalia, Bosnia, Croatia) and I have to argue whether Canadians should or shouldn't be peacekeeping in foreign countries. I have to have 3 main arguments, but I can't think of three solid ones for either yes or no.

Can you give me some ideas for 3 main points for either the yes or no side of the argument?

    * Developed democracies have a responsibility to help keep peace in the world.
    * Canada is a member of the United Nations.
    * Preventing wars helps protect Canada.

    * The money spent is wasted.
    * The safety of Canadian troops should not be risked.
    * Canada should maintain its neutrality.

    Thanks for the answer, but a few questions.

    Why exactly do developed democracies have said responsibility, and how does preventing wars protect Canada?

    In most ethical views, the strong have a responsibility to protect the weak.

    You think about how preventing wars protects Canada.

    If anything, I feel that peacekeeping would only agitate other countries of Canada's presence, no?

    That's possible.

    But in times of war, Canada may be involved -- as it was in World War I and World War II.

    So basically what you're saying is if a war breaks out in the country Canada is peacekeeping in, they'll feel obliged to participate?
