[edit: regarding "shifted"] "I don't have time now (and make no promises of later)" I really don't know how to help a reading comprehension failure at this level.Ah, so now the excuse has shifted from "I don't have time" to "I find it ridiculously to engage it"? If the first was accurate, you wouldn't still be arguing on this and if the second was accurate you would, again, still not be arguing over it. That you are proves exactly what I said; they're nothing more than excuses to give cover for a cherry pick on your part. Now that I've called it out, you've brought out the appeal to majority fallacy. You're not slick, nor clever here.
By the way, I can't help but notice your grammatical error "I find it ridiculously to engage it". Perhaps that is because you realized how stupid you looked when trying to pretend "I don't have time" and "I find it ridiculously time consuming" have no relation to each other? Or maybe you need me to speak in the language of fallacies. In this case, the fallacy of the excluded middle. I have time and patience. I do not have unlimited time and patience.
But I'm not doing so.When you're constantly shifting definitions, as you are, I'm sure it doesn't. Again, you're not clever here.
Oh, haha, I see your issue. If you need me to once again hold your hand through understanding a sentence, I'm happy to comply for now.I don't have to claim you've done a cherry pick when from your very first post, you admitted it. In your own words, you decided to take the point about aircraft losses as illustrative of the whole argument; would you like me to quote you on that? That is the definition of a cherry pick and why you've been reduced to special pleading and other logical fallacies because even the point you were trying to target has stood up under scrutiny, it's why you're trying to shift definitions now.
I don't have time now (and make no promises of later) to respond to everything in this post, but this paragraph in particular caught my eye; may we treat it as representative? Let us, as you say, "actually compare data".
"Reduce" is a relative term. See above. See "fallacy of the excluded middle". Unless ... are you trying to tell me that your obfuscation expands to fill the space available, and your bullshit wouldn't be any longer if I'd taken on your entire post?So which excuse is it? If you're trying to reduce your own workload, it's odd you've remained in an extended dialogue.
Oh, so are you suggesting the Ukrainians are to the Russians now as the Allies were to the Axis in 1944? An interesting claim, to be sure.U.S. Armed Forces, 1944. War orders across the board began to be slashed.
Well, okay, they also need to appeal to the military-industrial complex and its lobbyists.So to appeal to the public they put it in the trade journal for the U.S. defense industry instead of American consumer media? Yeah, okay.
