A Flying Bundle of Sticks
Can we stop arguing about definitions? It's a waste of everyone's time.
Of course it is, which is why everyone who tried to do it was making a mistake. Have you noticed how we went from "America is bad at wars because of those COIN things!" to "Okay, show me a military defeat in a COIN conflict," and the reply was "well POLITICS is war!" so now the argument is "the US is bad at military operations because of something that has literally nothing to do with their military operations."
It's copenick logic. Same shit they've done for over a century, classic leftist tactics - sophistry, gaslighting, etc. You're wasting your energy unless you treat them like yappy little dogs you're trying to fake out by throwing a superball, but - surprise! it was still in your hand!
