“The last full U.S. combat brigade pulls out of Iraq,” that was the headlines of MSNBC on August 19, 2010. Since President Obama took office, he planned on pulling the troops across the boarder into Kuwait. Is this crucial action a strategic one, or a mistake that can eventually be bad for the future of the U.S., and the middle east?
Some may say this is a great move one the U.S. part in that the war is closer to being over, and less U.S. troops will die in combat; Other’s say it is a “disaster waiting to happen,” in which Iraq is unstable with its government and the terrorists are closing in.
What we now can do is debate on whether the pulling of the troops out of Iraq was good or bad.
We can pinpoint this topic as, in some ways, a claim of fact, and other ways as a claim of value. It all depends on what each individual sees on this topic. Like any topic, this is a great topic of claim and value which can spark a great debate, as it does in Congress.
