    I agree, but I kind of want to see it first.

    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.

    Eight years to the day, now we can say, “Mission Accomplished.”

    I hate to burst your partisan bubble, but anyone would use it as a political asset. Kind of like how people tried to blame Clinton for 9/11 because he didn't get Obama during the first WTC bombing. Politics are all about utilizing assets.

    Come on. Don't follow what I am seeing right now on MSNBC. It may or may not be intended to be a cheap shot, but it still looks like it.
