    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Evidence that this is the primary cause? I wouldn't be surprised if the social stigma of dating across racial lines played a role as well.

    if the interracial divorce rate were higher than the divorce rate by those of the same race, it is not a far reach to conclude that the interracial aspect had a bearing on the higher divorce rates

    Well, no ****. But that doesn't say anything about the cause, whether it is inherent in the nature of the relationship, or whether it is caused by outside exogenous factors like I just stated.

    Would you naturally attribute all racial disparities in employment statistics to outright racism?

    IOW, correlation =/= causation.

    I think people just stopped staring and pointing in disgust everytime an IR couple went out in public. It's so common now that I can't see it even having an effect on IR marriages now! Of course if one family is racist, then there may be some problems, but other than that, I think it's a non issue.

    the delta between the two differing divorce rates could be found attributable to the cultural differences of the interracial couples
    what else would explain it?
