    Ah well.
    Dude, there is no such thing as an accurate user-generated poll.
    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.

    absolutely i'm proud of and love my Country. i'm not blind enough to think that they don't ever make mistakes, but that doesn't erase everything my Country has done that does makes me feel proud and grateful to be one of it's citizens.

    why do we fall sir? so that we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    you still haven't given up on me?

    Alfred:
    never.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    I started a generic thread for non-Americans. (Apologies for the grammatical error in the poll question, but I was in a hurry this morning when I posted it and didn't review it first. Nevertheless, it serves the purpose, I think.)

    There is absolutely NO reason to be proud of one's nationality. It's typically just an excuse for xenophobic nationalism, or used to justify wars of choice in order to "civilize" savage people in other countries.
    I don't really see anything wrong with nationalism. There's nothing wrong with thinking your country is better than the other countries. The way I see it is my family>my town>my county>my state>my country>the world.

    The white house is important, but my house is more important.
    If you strike me down, I'll become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.
