- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody 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.

WHY do you think the university is being "ridiculous" when it requires a club which receives some funding, meeting places and other support from the school to abide by well known rules?
This particular group, InterVarsity appears to be deliberately provoking school administrators as I have found they have been removed from at least 15 other campuses for exactly the same reason.
Considering the actions of other fundamentalist groups, I think this club, InterVarsity, is preparing a major lawsuit with the hopes that it will go all the way to the SCOTUS
