Definition: a No-win Situation is a philosphy of adversarial conflict or a Game Theory scenario in which by necessity all particpants lose, or all options have predominantly negative consequences.
A typical example is war, since typically both parties suffer severe losses.
Such a situation may occur for several reasons:
1. Unavoidable or unforeseeable circumstances
2. The necessity to do something, but any move makes the participant weaker (occurs sometimes in chess game)
3. A Catch-22
