Winner or Loser

At the the Senate Armed Services Committee hearings on the Iran nuclear deal, Senator Graham had this exchange with Defense Secretary Ashton Carter:
Graham: Could we win a war with Iran? Who wins the war between us and Iran? Who wins? Do you have any doubt who wins?
Carter: No. The United States.
Graham: We. Win.
If Carter had had his wits about him, he could have replied something like this:
 "If you are talking of a strict military to military confrontation, the United States wins. If you are talking about the state of the world after such a conflict,  the United States loses."
