The Straw Man fallacy is committed when a person simply ignores a person's actual position and substitutes a distorted, exaggerated or misrepresented version of that position. Your arguments were based on a misrepresentation of Duesberg's hypothesis or otherwise you would have known they were irrelevant.

Anyway.... Why don't you just watch the video first before you make any more comments? It's only two hours. Thusfar, I haven't encountered a single "debunker" or "skeptic" who can provide a plausible explanation for the points made in the video (eg. the failure of the HIV/AIDS hypothesis to pass Koch's postulates or the fact that almost all cases of AIDS within the developed world are limited to specific risk groups).
