- 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.
That is a statement which would require quantititative data.
A statement of opinion would be "I think that the group that has the most individuals that have chips on their shoulders is the blacks"
That statement could just be dismissed as a racist stereotype. (It qualifies as racist because it implies that blacks are in some way inferior to other groups due to this perceived inability to overcome their past at a higher rate)
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.
