Whataboutism or Whataboutary is the technique or practice of responding to an accusation or difficult question by making a counter-accusation or raising a different issue.


The USA to Russia: "You invaded Ukraine and killed tens of thousands of people."
Russia to the USA: "What about Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan,...?"

Now, my question is, why is Whataboutism generally considered evil?

Those who criticize whataboutism, What alternative way of response do they suggest?
