    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.

    Same here. Man! I NEVER slept as hard as I did up at my grandma's cabin, on Lake Pokegama.

    The Left always "threatens" to expatriate themselves, like when Alec Hasbeen Baldwin threatened to leave is Bush was elected in 2000.

    Like all libs, they're all talk, no action. We Americans were eagerly awaiting the day when the gate would slam hard on Baldwin's departing ass, but it didn't happen.

    Tres bizarre post. This poll has nothing to do with lean. At least it didn't, until you took a dump in it.

    I live in Taiwan. I know Taiwan excels at the two sports. Though, the badminton world powers now are China, Indonesia and Denmark. Taiwan and South Korea are both second-tier badminton powers. South Korea and Taiwan are generally regarded as two of the top taekwondo nations in the world. Though, the South Koreans have to cheat...

    I love visiting Hengchun in the winter. In the summer, I like the mountains. I went to Sanyi with my friends for running training on Sunday. Beautiful morning for a mountain run... 21 degrees with low humidity. This coming weekend, we are riding our bikes to Sun Moon Lake and then plan to swim in the lake... also another nice summer spot, if you know where to avoid the Chinese tourists...

    I think things could go from crap to ZOMFG!!! quick fast and in a hurry actually...but most likely in major cities. I no longer live in California, I live fairly rural, so if it ever goes TU, well...I'll hear about it on the shortwave I reckon. Im not leaving.
