Anyway, the first thing I noticed about the rhetorical situation is that the author really doesn't address his credentials in the actual post at all... ever. This made me very skeptical right off the bat. Granted you can click on the author's name at the top of the page and see his little bio, but who's actually going to do that?
His arguments about why the countries he lists seem valid and logical. However, he uses words that are far too flashy for most people to understand. He also comes across almost like a conspiracy theorist. He seems to think that pretty much everyone in the entire world is out to get America.
|This is an example of a conspiracy theorist|
All in all I feel like is rhetoric is about a 6.7 on a scale of one to ten. He employs logic relatively well, he appeals to fears that people already have, however he never really establishes his own credibility.
