    I wonder if someday the crew of the Chavez will strike for better working conditions, longer shore leave, better food, co-ed showers, and what about absurd rule of no orgies allowed? C’mon US navy get with the times, quit oppressing your workers’ rights. VIVA CHAVEZ!

    hahaha I laughed at this
    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.

    Yeah, cause everybody knows that Caesar Chavez stuck millions and millions of people in Gulags where they rotted away.
