                                                                   Hello !


We would like to introduce our team "Kawaii" (jap. "nice") which consists of 4 girls: Sardana Burnasheva, Marina Sekova, Olya Yadreeva and Sardana Sivtseva. We are the students of 3rd grade of Financial Economic Institute. We are all so different. For example, Sardana Burnasheva is fond of movies, cinema; Marina is a fan of Harry Potter; Olya is interested in East languages and culture; Sardana is a good ball-dancer. English is an interest that unites us. We have a dream to travel all around the world, have the friends abroad, improve our knowledge about traditions and culture of different peoples. We hope that this program will help us to come closer to our dream.   


Paragraph Writing "USA Presidential Campaign" from the document "Debate Transcript" Deadline Sunday October 19, 2008 midnight Yakutsk time

Team Roles:

Sardana B., starter for the first key sentences in the paragraph (2-3 sentences) for introductory part.

Marina, the key paragraph 1 writing (Barack Obama)

Olya, the key paragraph 2 writing (John McCain)

Sardana S., the wrapper, writing a conclusion consisting of 2-3 sentences according to the introductory part


Iraq became a big and sickly problem for the USA. It is difficult to understand real reasons and find who was to blame for this tragedy now. There are many points of view, many opposite opinions. And at First Debate this matter was mentioned too. We can compare Obama’s and McCain’s points of view at this problem. 

Let’s start from Obama’s speech. He said that they should end this war responsibly. They still have more troops in Iraq than they did before the surge. Then he reminded that they have four times the number of troops in Iraq, where nobody had anything to do with 9/11 before they went in, where, in fact, there was no Al Qaida before they went in, but they have four times more troops there than they do in Afghanistan. And the point that Obama originally made is that Americans took their eye off Afghanistan, they took their eye off the folks who perpetrated 9/11, they are still sending out videotapes, nobody is talking about defeat in Iraq, but Obama have to say about having enormous problems in Afghanistan because of that decision. 

But while McCain were focused on Iraq, he said well, they can "muddle through" Afghanistan. He thinks if they suffer defeat in Iraq, which General Petraeus predicts they will, if they adopted Senator Obama's set date for withdrawal, then that will have a calamitous effect in Afghanistan and American national security interests in the region.

As a conclusion we want to say that Obama and McCain have different opinions about war, different plans of solving this problem. They cannot agree with each other. We have to notice that McCain mostly criticized the plans of Obama. He haven’t exact plan and very often referred to someone else’s opinion, quoted phrases said somewhere by someone else. But Obama showed that he has exact plans and knows what to do. We can see that both are informed well, there are some figures directed by these 2 candidates.
