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.
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.
That is the fundamental truth of TV: NONE of it is real!
I read an interview with Ray Bradbury, some years ago, where he said that "Fahrenheit 451" was so much about censorship as it was about the imbecility that would come from watching TV.
Steve Allen said that he knew we were in trouble in the 1950s when viewers sent soap-opera actors cards and gifts when their CHARACTERS got married.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
