Between victor and victor

Between victor and victor

(p.77) Between victor and victor

Trinh T. Minh-ha

Fordham University Press

This chapter posits similarities between the two warring factions—primarily focusing on the United States and Iraq, although it does include discussions of other nations and factions that the United States has had to contend with throughout history. Rather than the commonly held assumption that there is only the victor and the defeated, this chapter argues that both sides can be considered “victors,” and that such perspectives are even encouraged by media coverage. Moreover, the methods with which both sides use to make war with the other and obtain victory are likewise similar. The chapter concludes by showing how the delusion of the two victors only serves to benefit the cause of war.
