- 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.

Incest has documented genetic problems. And we've seen this from humans to mice. Polygamy, as long as all parties agree to it without duress, heck why not? Just adjust the tax laws to accommodate and we're good. As for Beastiality, how is that even related to this?Are you going to say the same thing for incest? Beastiality? Polygamy?
Why does the capacity to produce children matter?I know everyone's works the same point being can't have a child the normal way man/woman without having sex...being gay means you aren't doing it the normal way so they must adopt or get a woman to carry 1 of the men's seed and not the other...
Why does it matter at all if it's genetic?
