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.

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.
