    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.

    It was one of those things that would bug me when I noticed it, but most times, I never even thought of it.

    Re: For Veterans and Military personnel only.

    12 years active duty starting in late 64, 2 years of school, then 67-69 Fast attack submarine, 69-70 Vietnam, 70-71 more school, 71-74 AAWC, GTMO, 74-77 COSL, Norfolk, then out and into the reserves for 10 years...
    Pretty sure that Obama has done more for veterans his first year than GWB did in 8 years....
    During Obama's watch, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's and 2 weeks later PD, IHD, and DMII were added to the agent orange presumptive list. I submitted my paperwork and now get a disability check from the VA.
    I don't hate Obama, but I will vote for Romney....after all, Romney is the first republican in many years that I will be voting FOR, instead of just voting against the democrat's candidate.

    Thus far, without a spurge from the tea-bagging conservatives, a surprise...
    IMO, Romney cannot be trusted; our President can be...
    USAF, '58 - '62.....
    Maybe our military is above average where is comes to "being up on things".

    BTW - Where is all that liberal media we hear about? Most reps on talk shows are republicans. Check out Sunday mornings, main stream media. There are left and right medias. But the montra is ALL are left wing. Check radio stations across the nation.

    Yes, Obama, is my vote!
    What os "montra" ?
    I never listen to the radio, except for NPR...I cannot abide all those advertisments on radio..
    Interesting and strange that "all the talk shows" are Republician (actually extreme conservatives), IMO...

    **** it, if I absolutely had to choose between those two, it would be Obama. Personally, I think Obama has done alright. I don't agree with his politics, but I don't think he's all that bad.

    maybe from your experience you never saw any waste? congress wanting military hardware built in their states, hardware that the military does NOT WANT.....
    How about all the officers sitting at desks doing jobs that were done by enlisteds during WWII....
    Admiral Rickover said, openly, that we had a ratio of enlisteds to officers that was way off base compared to WWII. If we can fight a world war with fewer officers, maybe we are doing something wrong now?
    How about we have a military that is capable of defense, cut back on the offense. Neither Iraq was was necessary. Trillions of dollars wasted, not so we here in the states can live free, but so we can live well, trading the blood of our youth for cheaper gasoline in our cars....
