Iraq Is Not Worth Saving

Debate 2 Large

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

In April 2003 America went to war against Iraq, and less than a month later, victory was declared over Saddam Hussein’s government. It would take nearly 9 more years for the war to officially end. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki, Iraq’s sectarian and ethnic divisions would intensify as he alienated the Sunni and Kurdish population. Buoyed by the civil war in Syria, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has emerged, seizing control of large swaths of Iraq. A Sunni militant group thought to be more radical than al Qaeda, its goal is to establish an Islamic caliphate. What is America’s role in the Middle East? Should the U.S. support the Iraqi government as it fights to hold the country together, or are the costs too high and the benefits too tenuous for intervention?
