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.

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.

Back to Carlson.

Bombing Iran would not have ended Trump's political career.

The strikes would have been limited.

Carlson is under the delusion that an American strike will trigger a full-on war.

How can anybody think that? It's demented.

Carlson goes to ramble about something that will never happen.

We're not going to war with Iran, period.

Everything Carlson says about war with Iran is irrelevant. Like everyone on TV, he has no clue how brilliant Trump is.

AND.

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.

@ThomasWic

What's up with the people warning us about John Bolton? Our Donald seems content enough with Bolton.

@HunDriverWidow @ThomasWic

Just the DC template. Tucker resides and lives off the swamp. He sold any objectivity to get that TV show.
