But you didn't, you just ended up being on the winners' side. Likewise we didn't lose the war, we were just on the losers' side.
what loser's sophistry is this? there was no 'just' about it!

And what sort of sophistry is it to imply I said what I said because of being in the losers position and not because that's how it is?

because winning the war was hard -- nobody 'just' won it. it was v. difficult work.

you're a loser because by your own admission you are on the loser's side. that makes you a loser. i made no claim that you made the claim *because* you're a loser, just that a loser was making it -- i.e. that it was a loser's argument.

but that's exactly what i'm contesting i.e. that you won it, it couldn't be clearer what i meant when i said you simply happened to be on the winners' side.
