In the listing of fallacies, the expansionist, warmongering Islamist fascists –“reformers” and all- and their minions deserve their very own category as the posterboy of the art.
It would be nearly impossible to run across any statement by any Islamist fascists, their lobbyist like NIAC and alike, and not be confronted with at least couple of fallacies.
Here is the latest example, head of the Revolutionary Guards Corp’s ( above picture on the R) reaction to the media news of his force being designated as terrorist group by United States:
“Iran's official IRNA news agency is quoting the chief of Iran's powerful Revolutionary Guard as saying the U.S. should move its military bases farther from Iran's borders if it imposes new sanctions against Tehran.
Jafari also said that if the United States designates the Guard as a terrorist group, the Guard will also consider the U.S. army a terrorist group.”
U.S. Army being a terror group in a democracy like America is left for credible historians, but the fallacious nature of Islamist fascists and their minions is easily proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.
There are at least two fallacies in the above warmongering Islamist fascists’ statement:
1- Appeal to Consequences: The author points to the disagreeable consequences of holding a particular belief in order to show that this belief is false.
2- Appeal to Force: The reader is told that unpleasant consequences will follow if they do not agree with the author.
Airtight sanctions, a la against the despicable South Africa apartheid, works. U.S. lawmakers get to it.
