Years ago, I noticed that in US public discourse, it's normal for all sides to be wrong.

Take Trump's decision to not retaliate against Iran for shooting down a reconnaissance drone.

Tucker Carlson is wrong.

Every time we've used limited military force against Iran, they haven't responded.

So a series of air strikes would not have led to war.

Also, the aircraft were not in the air when Trump decided to not retaliate.

He never gave permission for the strikes to be carried out.

Then Tucker Carlson finally admits what he's all about:

HE KNOWS EVERYTHING.

He knows better than Trump how to run the country.

Americans are obsessed with rhetoric and public apologies. I support Bolton refusing to agree publicly that he was wrong.

Don't give the enemy ammunition.

Trump chose him. That's good enough for me.

Then Carlson says that the shooting down of the drone was supposed to be the trigger for regime change in Iran.

This is one of the most childish things I've ever heard.

Carlson knows nothing about military affairs. We don't have the assets in theater to wage war on Iran.

Remember how long it took us to build up the Iraq invasion force? Carlson is irrational when it comes to this topic.

He's crazy.

FINALLY, Carlson completely ignores the regional powers who have waged the most stunning wars in human history.

Mosul was taken after the Islamic state fortified it for three years. They built underground complexes, created killing zones, stockpiled weapons, and held a million human shields.

It actually hasn't been publicized how the the Gulf Cooperation Council helped the Iraqis take the city.
