This house believes that the Pentagon building should be deconstructed

Contents

Background and Context of Debate:

Does it makes any sense that that building still stands?

Pro

  • Berlin wall, a prominent symbols of cold war, has been torn down. Pentagon stands to this day.
  • No strategic significance. Pentagon shapes are the best (according to military theory) to defend. But c'mon, when there would be a battlefield in D.C., it would be the end of the world (as we know it) anyway, so what sense does it make to have a fortress in the middle of a city?

Con

  • The building's long corridors creates lots of workplaces for janitors.

Pros/cons of the actual demolition

Pro

  • The site would make a nice place for a park.
  • Building material source. The bricks or just pieces of wall could be reused for reconstruction of countries destroyed by questionable decision made there, much as the beams of Twin Towers were remelted and shaped into warships.


Con

  • The building's long corridors creates lots of workplaces for janitors.

Aircrafts kamikadzing as a mean of Pentagon demolition

Pro

  • Way how to get rid of obsolete airplanes. Currently, there are lots of 'planes graveyards' around the country. When a plane would just hit the Pentagon at the end of its service life (remotely operated - or possibly occupied by volunteers).. why not.

Con

  • Too noisy, possibility of mishit. The building stands in the middle of inhabited area, so it's obviously not a good idea to undertake such a pyrotechnic action, as fancy as it may seem. The dangers are just too high.


Explosive demolition as a mean of Pentagon deconstruction

Pro

  • Fast.
  • Cheap.
  • Workplaces for demolition workers. The cleanup would create jobs for demolition workers.


Con

  • Noisy.
  • Dusty.
