Argumentum ad populum

A documentary aired on CBC last night. I didn’t see it, but apparently it focused on the “human” side of Osama Bin Laden. Poor Osama has problems with his kids and his four wives. He has financial challenges. But he likes volleyball and poetry.

In pirate terms, it brings tears to me eyes.

Hitler may have collected stamps. Does this have anything to do with his pogrom?

Hey Osama, here’s a poem for you. I hope you don’t mind that it’s free-verse.

It doesn’t matter that you think America is evil.
It doesn’t matter that you like volleyball.
It doesn’t matter that you struggle with problems with your four wives (although … nice job on that!)
You killed a bunch of innocent people.
Oops.
The last sound you hear will be your head
Hitting the ground.
