That's your claim, based on pure convenience for your position. It's not based on reality.
Poster after poster on this forum has explained it's about who was killed. But you (predictably ) want to imagine your own hypothetical to pretend it's not really important to us.
A clear data point against your claim is to look at Syria and Turkey. Trump was criticized for cutting and running and not defending our ally, which damaged our political position in the region. A criticism for NOT taking military action.
Was Trump criticized for increasing the magnitude by almost a factor of four between 2016 and 2018?U.S. and allied warplanes are dropping bombs on insurgent targets in Afghanistan at a record pace. But the Taliban doesn't seem to be backing down.www.usatoday.com
Reality doesn't support your conjecture.
Actually, it does support it.
You say that, but in no way justify that claim...
I just pointed out a specific example that was directly parallel to this one. Trump escalating military attacks four times what they were under Obama, but no liberal complaints.
So how does that justify it?
Once again, you take things out of context and move the goalposts at a whim.Because any fair reading of my post would not limit the larger point only to actions taken.
Gosh, if anyone would have appreciated the full spectrum of potential gainsaying I would have bet good money it would have been you.
In my first post above, I was pointing out how reality does not support your claim.
You replied by saying "Actually, it does support it."
I point out the examples I provided, taken from "reality", actually contradict your claim.
You then reply with "Because any fair reading of my post would not limit the larger point only to actions taken.", which clearly demonstrates that you do not want to rely solely on what is (what actions were actually taken) and go beyond that. Go beyond reality and rely on your IMAGINATION regarding what people would do in hypothetical situations as an argument.
So which is it?
Do you want your arguments to rely on your imagination and ignore the reality which contradicts your imagination?
Or do you want to deal in reality, in which case you need to explain your statement of how my real life examples support your claim?
