    Question

    Question:

    Who determines the questions that can be asked via a poll? Why was my poll question regarding a 'Supreme Race' locked? The question is legitimate.

    Re: Question

    Seriously? Oh dear...who wants to take this one?
    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.

    -- Let me! Let me! Although prolly not the answer you expect, StillBallin.

    Your poll isn't locked. I just voted on it.

    Maggie's right Yukon. Your poll isn't locked, it was just moved to a different part of the forum.

    Ironically it's probably the only part of the forum he should have access to.
