    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.

    Called me the minority here but I find Charles Barkley funny. Haven't put him on a pedestal and wouldn't cross the street to get his autograph but I do enjoy listening to him. So be it.

    Whether you put him on a pedestal or not, the fact that this is even a story says that his words are taken too seriously. Charles Barkley is no philosopher or thinker. He knows some basketball tho. Outside of that, he opinion on anything should not matter.

    Who is taking him seriously? I enjoy him and also enjoy Michael Strahan and Terry Bradshaw.

    What is the big problem with that? The three all have contagious laughs. I find them a hoot to watch.

    My favorite line from Terry Bradshaw is
    I had learned so much about marriage from Missy that I only had to get divorced two more times.

    People need to lighten up. These guys aren't running for political office.

    There is a thread about it. There are stories written about it. Someone is taking him seriously. And my point is that these guys should not be in a position such that what they say should be taken seriously in the first place.
