Except that's not an argument against
it being Tyrion... it's an argument for
it being Jaime. Different thing. As I said, I would consider those only if there was any reason to think it was not Tyrion... and there isn't.
In any case, Jaime is (IMO) ruled out by the specific wording of the prophecy - 'the valonqar will wrap his hands around your pale white throat'. In order to get that to fit Jaime, you have to treat it as in some way symbolic - but even then, it doesn't really fit, tbh.
