Flawed Logic. Flawed argument. Too painful to go down the list, but an argument that flows from a premise, "there can only be one reason..." is lacking in nuance, and therefor ignores the reality that there are many many possibilities. Another attempt to vilify people of conscience who refute the idea that WAR as the only solution to this problem. I understand the desire to pen people into a corner in order to force them to agree or see your side. I doubt that many members of this list will be persuaded by the article posted.
