    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.

    Re: The Tabooed N-Word

    Whenever i've said/typed it it's been in debates - probably all on this forum.

    It serves me no purpose outside of such use. . . and I'm never calling *someone* it

    Re: The Tabooed N-Word

    i don't believe the people who say they've never said it. like the thread title says....it's one of those "taboo" words.
    everyone has said it just to hear themselves say it.

    retard. A word which I would actually prefer not to have eliminate because it conveys how i feel about many people.

    That, or you'll feel like a retard

    Sorry, I had to...
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Since I don't say it there is no manner beyond that of absence.
