    It's not an unreasonable request. If someone needs to ask for your identification, they need to see your face.
    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.

    i think this is perfectly fine:

    The government says the law would require motorists and criminal suspects to remove any head coverings so police can identify them. Critics say the bill smacks of anti-Muslim bias given how few women in Australia wear burqas. In a population of 23 million, about 400,000 are Muslim.

    Other than an ID or sometin like that you should not be forced not to be able to wear one.

    Agreed, much ado about nothing. I recall when a muslim woman refused to remove her burqua for her drivers license photo, then sued because she was refused a license. Does anyone honestly think that police requesting identification can stare at a pair of eyeballs and say, "Yep, that's her!" An illogical fuss about a logical requirement, in my opinion.
