Loss and Losing

In regard to the war, we keep hearing that Americans do not like to “lose”. Lose what?

I know we don’t like to lose lives needlessly in a war that should have never been. I know we don’t like to be responsible for the loss of innocent Iraqi lives. We don’t like to lose tons of money to a war machine. We don’t like to lose our homes. We don’t like to lose our mode of transportation due to high gasoline prices. And we sure as hell don’t like to lose our good reputation all around the world. For a country that doesn’t like to “lose”, we sure have lost a lot and we’re still losing.

We lost the minute the first set of American boots hit the sand.

And we lost our collective minds before that.

If you can't win then you can't lose.

And in that case we shouldn't even be playing.

And I have grown to hate the word 'victory'. When you hear McCain braying that word it means that he plans to send your kids to die in this tragic, illegal and immoral morass. We must, must not elect another Republican president and it is imperative that we elect super strong majorities in the House and Senate. The world is hanging in the balance.

It's not a war. It's an occupation. We can't lose! We already won! The president said so.

Rhetoric will be used against us to keep this mess going. Loss was a given day one. That BS of loss will be used against us so we embrace the idea of loss of all our rights. It will not stop in the foreseeable future. This entire mess despite the partisan rhetoric like it or not is just beginning!

what we will hopefully soon lose is this Administration and another like it. And I hope Shrub lives a long, long time so he can watch his place in history be defined fully.

When the MSM says 'Americans don't like to lose' it's talking about politicians.
They [and those who unthinkingly back them up] will deny and deny the losses while the rest of us see clearly what they are.

PoP - It's sad, but to people like McCain, war is no different than baseball; a contest to be won. However, I don't think the George Bush sees things quite that way. GWB has literally ruined everything he's touched. Oil companies, baseball teams, governments -- you name it, he's screwed it up.
