Because her comment had nothing whatsoever to do with what was actually being discussed.
So you think that she doesn't know what she's talking about. It's amazing how peopel can dismiss the movie's script just because they have a predetermined conclusion.

It's a straw man very simply because at no point was anyone proposing that be done. The answer to the question "are we talking about mothballing the Starfleet" was clearly "no."
Again: dismissing the script because you disagree. As if canon bowed to our collective wills.
It's NOT a "straw man " argument!


Again from the SCRIPT AND ONSCREEN DIALOGUE:-

MILITARY AIDE: Bill, are we talking about mothballing the Starfleet?

C in C: I'm sure that our exploration and scientific programs would be unaffected, Captain, but...


The answer is CLEARLY not NO, but is a MAYBE!
