why do good oxidizing agents easily reduce?

Good (strong) oxidizing agents are easily reduced. What you said I think differs slightly from that. If they are strong oxidizing agents, they easily oxidize other ions and in doing so the oxidizing agent is reduced. If this isn't quite what you were looking for, please rephrase and respond to this post.
