How we lost [country]

Every article titled "How we lost ____" with the name of a country in the blank, really bugs me. This is the article that triggered this particular post, but you can find examples of the same title filling the blank with a bunch of other countries. We don't have any other countries. They are not prizes to win or lose. None of these titles would make sense unless you buy the premise of imperialism.
