Of course, the damage it causes to your health when you consume food that has been contaminated by nuclear radiation or spilled oil does not dissapate or bio degrade.
It's easy to talk about it when it isn't your back yard, but I gurantee you aren't jumping at the chance to have a Mark I nuclear reactor built down the street from your house just because you electric bill would go down.
Conjecture, not fact.If the government would stop trying to fix every goddamn thing, we wouldn't be paying so much and if we were, we could at least afford to do so.

- 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.
