    I'm pretty sure that's OK. If not, then flag code is truly retarded.

    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.

    According to the flag code, yes.



    Same as the first one.



    I don't see where there is a violation of flag code there.



    Even if there is a violation of flag code in that picture, it certainly was not done by the soldiers in the picture. It would have been whoever edited the photo.
    Every one of those was outdoors. No provision was made to protect the flags in inclement weather. Flag codes states the flag should not be flown in inclement weather.

    Unless now you want to differentiate between a 'real' flag and a 'representation' of one.

    Just saying the flag code is just about meaningless. Yes things can be disrespectful but everything is circumstantial.
    PURE STUPIDITY 1.) Glenn Beck doesnt lie. 2.) Obama is Jesus like 3.) Sara Palin is so smart & shes a great speaker. 4.) Obama does just about everything perfect. 5.) Fox doesn' t lean right 6.) Pro-Choice is no different than Pro-Slavery 7.) MSNBC doesn't lean left. 8.) What TSA does is no different than sexual assault & child porn.

    I believe those are OK as well.

    Actually just checked. Those violate flag code unless they are considered a patriotic organization.
