Suggestion of a Friend
Refugee from another political board
Three witches that shared an eye sent me here.
- 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.
I debated politically on a past forum that wasn't based on politics.
Then I searched for a political forum and found myself here.
Bit of friend and refugee.
When whistlestopper went down, someone suggested this forum... I came, didn't like it at first but after a couple of months my posting picked up and boom, here we are... Over a year and nearly 8000 posts later...
