Let me use short words so even conservatives can understand this.


The setup:

House Minority Leader John Boehner was booed on Wednesday at a construction workers’ union legislative forum for saying the United States needs to fight the war in Iraq or face terror attacks at home.

"Who doesn't believe that if we just pull out of Iraq and come home that the terrorists won't follow us here and we'll be fighting them on the streets of America?" Boehner, R-Ohio, said to members attending the AFL-CIO's Building & Construction Trades Department's legislative forum.

Which makes perfect sense since, as we all know, the only possible way the terrorists could find their way to the U.S. would be to follow the stream of retreating troops and, consequently, until the U.S. invaded Iraq in 2003, nothing bad terrorist-related could possibly have happened in the United States prior to that.

Feel free to demonstrate the logical fallacy in my presentation.

Perhaps you should read the definition of "metaphor".
