Defeat as a Function of War

One of the most common words associated with war is defeat. It has been said that in war, there is no victor. For blood is always shed by both sides, and I find this to be true. To measure victory as account of who has spilled less blood seems a wonderfully Neanderthal practice. Still, such is the duality of man that we can crusade for “peace” by route of its reciprocal. Yet, war is a seemingly endless practice, whether it be hard right republicans or terrorist extremists…there is no end in sight. So the question is no longer, “How can we win?”, rather, “How can we lose the least?”…puzzling.

  1. ” So the question is no longer, “How can we win?”, rather, “How can we lose the least?”…puzzling. ” So? you must make your argument! You post is far too short. The graphic is uncredited, but more importantly, not analyzed! You cannot write a post with a sound byte…these are for analysis, so I can follow your THINKING…this post does not do that kind of analysis. I am seriously interested in how you will resolve the idea of defeat as accepting a less of a loss.
