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.
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.
Then we have an idiot on MSNBC tell us that Trump is an isolationist.
See what I mean about everyone being wrong?
On which planet is Trump an isolationist.
Mike Pence is a co-president and Secretary of State in one.
Mike Pompeo has done more than all previous Secretaries of State combined.
Trump is a nationalist internationalist. America first, but we won't turn our back on the world.
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.
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.
The US Air Force says that it took nine months to build a digital map of Mosul. Every building--inside and out--was scanned.
About 500 commandos did the scanning on the ground. It's clear that the GCC can also scan underground structures.
Tucker Carlson is a mindlessly yapping dolt who accidentally revealed that he holds Arabs in contempt.
Once again, Trump has made someone involuntarily drop the mask.
She doesn’t look well
What's up with the people warning us about John Bolton? Our Donald seems content enough with Bolton.
👆 No wrong again. He’s on a roll.
@ThomasWic past air strikes occurred before Iran built up their military weaponry. No one can guess with certainty how a country would react to being attacked. Carlon's guess is as good as anyone's, and it's at least based on Iran's rhetoric and their current capabilities. A counterattack could even be unconventional and plausibly deniable. Best not to guess to much about those kinds of things.
" Carlon's guess is as good as anyone's, and it's at least based on Iran's rhetoric and their current capabilities. "
2) Carlton "guessing" is as good as Trump's KNOWING?
3) Carlton's "guessing" based on IRAN's rhetoric?
4) Carlton's "guessing" based on Iran's "current capabilities?"?"
5) A Counterattack "plausibily deniable?
AND, the Piece of Resistance....
6) Best not to "guess" too much about "those" kinds of things?
Are you the "Q"?
@ThomasWic I tell people all the time about this and they look at me like I have three heads.
It's the old case of, "Don't confuse me with the facts. I already know what I believe."
To be included are we who followed you. Yours was the best ever analysis of what happened.
After the third warning, the order was given by the commander, not the boss;
Thn they did. ~40 guys on the ground directed a 100% casualty infliction on the Russian soldiers disguised as Mercs.
Vinograd? Wine Graduate?
Graduated to what crystal meth?
That waif looks like she was out all night painting the town. Somebody get that girl a sammich!
She makes about as much sense as Tucker talking about "chincy, pre-fab" Dubai or Riyadh.
He's part of the cult of personality disorder.
Also, his name is misspelled.
It starts with an F...
Another pattern I notice is the hubbub about what Trump did or did not do gets more attention than whatever Trump ended up do or not do. This is the part where Trump can mess with the media.
Now these media types who are used to be able to see via leaks what exactly is going on in the administration are losing it.
Tucker's furrowed brow nightly makes me want to pull hair. He uses his show to give Leftists a nightly forum to spew their crap. While the RAT spews his insane Leftist drivel, Tucker sits there with his furrowed brow as if he doesn't have a comeback to destroy the lying, programmed Leftist. OMG.
Tucker is known in some circles as Chatsworth Osborne, Jr.
I knew I knew him and I couldn't figure out where I knew him from, Googled, and found out he was on Dobie Gillis. My oh my! That was a long time ago!
Thank you Mr. Wictor.
If you ever want to swim/sail in a fresh water ocean (Lake Michigan) let me know.
The real world is nothing like the world of 95% of the US Congress & politicians nationwide. It's a business they hope to cash in on from Day 1 after their getting elected by any means necessary. Political office is a "cash cow" funded by the US taxpayers. Politicians suckle off of We The People for the rest of their lives; one way or another. Just take note of Zero & his Mooch? taking a $62,000 a wk vacation after shipping planeloads of our cash to Iran. Smell at all to you?
Amen to that!
That's why I respect your opinion.
It isn't tainted by the lame stream.
@ThomasWic The political knowledge idiocy of Scott Adams amazes me every day. He did a Periscope today where he credited Tucker Carlson with preventing war with Iran. These blowhards will never accept the fact that Trump is a million times smarter than them in every aspect.
OH MY GOD.
That's so embarrassing.
Who knew that so many people are off their rockers?
He does have some interesting things to say once in awhile. I think a lot of what he says is just time filling to keep his profile profile up.
I disagree with him sometimes when I catch his periscope, but I always take what he says with a grain of salt. Someone here said it well - he’s a “mesmerizer.” He’s a hypnotist and sometimes plays games with suggestion. He geeks out on persuasion and sometimes hes speaking to the person on the fence.
@ThomasWic @trueblueTEX @mirali
Scott's Video where he said Trump HAD to listen to him or lose in 2020?
He later explained it was a test to see if You Tube is throttling his viewer count. He's convinced Twitter is throttling him as well.
I watched the Carlson Video as well, he said everything people are upset or perplexed about.
But he was talking about Carlson's ability to PERSUADE.
Not the reality of his topic.
Ho Ho and HO!
@trueblueTEX @ThomasWic @mirali @DuaneCates
Most interesting thing I think he said about pres declining to attack was think about it from the perspective of the Iranian people, to whom he sent the message that killing 150 of them was too high a price. Trump suddenly in position where HE is the one who cares about them, and their leaders are ones trying to bring death raining down on them.
Valid point? Maybe. Part of the maneuver? Who knows. But a perspective maybe not heard anywhere else.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
