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.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
