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.
CNN's Samantha Vinograd is wrong.
Again, Trump did not make a decision and then change his mind.
He called together his national-security group, got a casualty estimate, and decided that it wasn't necessary to kill 150 Iranians at this point.
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.
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.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
