Subject: The fatally flawed ticking-bomb


It would be better to base government policy on astrology than on scenarios so fatally flawed as the ticking-bomb. This "scenario" embeds numerous assumptions and fallacies Some of the assumptions are:

He said the following last week in an interview with German television: "I've committed our troops into harm's way twice, and it's not a pleasant experience because I understand the consequences firsthand."
