Re: Winning.

Hi Dave, great post. I think something people find hard to accept, is that we do the best we can at the time. We should learn from our mistakes but not dwell on them. We learn a lesson, but admit that we are not infallible and, especially in combat, we have to make very important decisions with very little information. What you know now is more than you knew then, so just realise, that was a different you - you've moved on. I think it is very unfair to criticise anybody elses actions during combat because you just do what you can do at the time. The same applies for people who 'loose'.
