    Reasons to Avoid Logical Fallacies in Your Writing
    "There are three good reasons to avoid logical fallacies in your writing. First, logical fallacies are wrong and, simply put, dishonest if you use them knowingly. Second, they take away from the strength of your argument. Finally, the use of logical fallacies can make your readers feel that you do not consider them to be very intelligent."
    (William R. Smalzer, Write to Be Read: Reading, Reflection, and Writing, 2nd ed. Cambridge Univ. Press, 2005)
    Assuming you are ignorant rather than dishonest, top logical fallacies are explained here and here, should you wish to join the reality based community at some point.

      ...away from the only important question:

      Why were Hillary Clinto and Barack Obama so maniacally determined to throw down thousands of bombs on the nation of Libya?

      Did we have to destroy it to save it?

      Was the fate of a brutal Islamist rebellion somehow critical to our national interest?

      But apologists for mass-murder always slither away with absurd evasions.

      Can we trust the US military for accurate reports about civilian casualties?

      Of course we can!

      ...in the warped little world of Dick Cheney, Hillary Clinton, and the pseudonym "Orinoco."
