    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.

    Opinions don't need evidence.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    No, they dont.

    And opinion is an opinion. It can be justified by personal observations that are not "sourced".

    So say someone needs "a link" or "a source" for an opinion is an absolute cop out.

    Someone asking for "a link" or "a source" for an opinion shows that they have no way of arguing against said opinion.

    Just don't expect people to take you seriously when you use your own observations and extrapolate them to make conclusions about the entire population, because like I told you before, anecdote =/= data.

    How does one argue against an opinion that doesn't have evidence?

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Refusing to prove one's claims and crying when asked to is the only resort of those who make stupid **** up and get called on it, thus feeling like idiots for making **** up.
