    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.

    Looking at the wiki, if the lady is easily identifiable, then yes, I guess it hinges on that.

    Or I could be talking out of my ass.

    thats a TOUGH call, there is implied communication but its hard to prove.

    For example if Mrs. Conan/Terminator posted herself on bill boards and it said my ex husband is a lying cheating bastard with herpes. lol

    thats probably libel if he doesnt have herpes, IF lol and its probably harassment because Im guessing because of how famous both of them are the judge wouldnt view it as not being named, we know damn well who she is talking about because of their fame.

    Now thats NOT the case her but it leaves the door open.

    This should have been on the billboard instead.

    1st off IMO the guy is a douchbag dick head.

    Now thats out of the way, his name isnt up ther, her name isnt up there so Im not really sure where the legal part comes in.

    Like some one else said if she didnt get an abortion that libel but again, no names were mentioned.

    Also invasion of privacy could apply because its medical history/procedure but again no names were mentioned.

    Tough call indeed . . . . . . .

    Im thinkin its right to take it down, and the jail time is if he doesnt comply with the court order so i have no problem with that.
    His picture is up there, and anybody who knew they were a couple would then know he is talking about her very personal, private, medical, business.

    I would imagine this is more about revenge than abortion. Dude's a duechebag, concur with Jerry.

    Nope. Free speech.

    this remains to be seen.
    But a Judge already ordered him to take it down

    free speech doesnt allow you to harass or be libel or invade another person privacy like medical history, conditions, procedures.
