8:3, ISIS (The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria)
The “lone wolf” attacks by Muslim extremists in the USA and around the world
have been inspired by ISIS. Do you think President Donald Trump should
order an all out war against ISIS including US ground troops. Why or why not?
8:2, The Invasion of Iraq.
After the attack of September 11, 2001, President George W. Bush
feared that there could be another attack.
The head of the CIA told President Bush that Iraq had a stockpile of weapons of mass destruction that they could give or sell to terrorist groups.
Do you think President Bush should have ordered the invasion of Iraq? Why or why not?
8:1, Vietnam War
How and why did the USA get involved in Vietnam?
Do you think we should have become involved?
Discuss the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution.
Was it fact or fiction? 58,000 Americans died in Vietnam and
300,000 were wounded. Did we go to war based on false information?
