BS"D

Note how the BS artists will redirect the discussion away from relevant details to unsupportable allegations that are only peripherally related to the original topic, if at all.

They usually redirect in a way that they hope will lead their reader to dismiss the case against them. For example, I contrasted the handful of accidental civilian casualties caused by the West with the thousands of murders of fellow Muslims by Saddam, and along comes B.S. to stir up resentment against the war. Why? Because, if you feel the war was wrong and get angry about that, a shared identity is forged with him (and the killers he supports). If that identity can be made strong enough, it will prevent you from seeing him and his friends in a negative light, and you won't care that Muslims are killed deliberately and much more often by their fellows than accidentally by their would-be rescuers. He doesn't even address that latter point, because he wants you to ignore it and only focus on the propaganda he is spoon feeding you.

The only references they will ever give, if they do at all, is to others who say what they do, and "a lie oft repeated begins to be accepted as truth." They also don't want to get in a discussion where you could refute them. The point is to create the illusion that they are telling the truth, and that they can be trusted. They aren't, and they can't be! If they can't keep you from discovering those facts, they have failed.

Now, let's look at just a couple of the falsehoods they want us to buy into.

Remember the United States' "failure" in Iraq?
It's not.

Remember how President Bush "lied" to get us to go to war?
He didn't

Remember those WMD that Saddam didn't have?
He did.

Remember how Saddam had no working relationship with Al Qaeda?
He did.

Connect some of the dots yourself, with this information from a Muslim source:

And once it is established that they do not tell the truth, they should no longer be believed and certainly not answered, except indirectly to instruct about their methods and prevent them from acquiring more victims of their deception.
