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.
Apparently I am the only person on earth--besides Trump, Putin, and the people involved--who knows that Trump inflicted the worst military defeat on Russian in the entire history of the United States.
On February 7, 2018, near Deir Ezzor, Syria, we completed destroyed a Russian assault battalion called a Mobile Detachment Combat Group.
Three motorized infantry companies in infantry fighting vehicles, ten main battle tanks, six self-propelled howitzers, one grenade-launcher platoon, one mortar platoon, one antitank-gun platoon, one flamethrower platoon, and one heavy machine-gun platoon.
Only one tank and one armored vehicle were left.
Two infantry companies died instantly, according to the survivors.
This was RUSSIA, not Iran.
Carlson let's slip that he's a mullah fanboy.
He says, Iran is an impressive place, "not at all like the chintzy, prefab capitals of the Arab world, like Riyadh or Dubai."
This anti-Arab bigotry is laughable, given the Third Revolution in Military Affairs.
Then Carlson warns us about John Bolton.
For some reason, everyone forgets that National Security Advisors can only talk.
Bolton can't take us to war.
👆 No wrong again. He’s on a roll.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
