Colin Powell passed away today from complications of Covid, despite being fully vaccinated. He was a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Secretary of State and National Security Adviser. A lifelong Independent, Powell was courted by both Democrats and Republicans to run for the office of President before deciding in 1995 that running for office wasn't for him.

Always liked him, and always thought he would be the first black president.

Unfortunately the Iraq mass messup was a big stain in his career.

His legacy is one of needless death. He helped foster the lie that there were WMD’s in Iraq, when he knew the real truth. Rather than going along with their game, he could have resigned.

He helped facilitate the deaths and disability of thousands of American soldiers, while destabilizing the entire Middle East; by destroying the main counter balance to Iran. This led to the deaths of thousands of Christians in Iraq and Syria, who were generally protected under their respective, moderate regimes.

He cost countless American lives, in his sad slavery to the Bushes and the Cheneys. If he had simply resigned, before the Iraq war, he would have been called a Prince of Truth.

His death is symbolic of the vanishing truth in America. A nation now cursed, writhing in the agony of a delusion that shall lead to certain death, if not healed by a miracle of humility.

Rest in peace? Where? How many dead? How many trillions wasted?

War criminal in my mind. But then again, I thought very poorly of the Bush administration

Sadly, I must agree. I say “sadly,” because his worldly achievements were considerable.

The end of Powell’s life appears to be one of considerable pain and discomfort. Do I sympathize with him as a human being? Of course, how can I not …. but working so hard to kill others by promoting a lie is not heroic.

The Iraq fiasco, and tormented aftermath reminds me of one of my favorite episodes from the original Star Trek series ….

“Regrettable that this society has chosen suicide ….”

Roddenberry promoted a truth that should strike fear into the hearts of our military industrial complex, but they lack the intelligence to grasp the power that now works against them.

All, without a shot being fired from a single man-made weapon.

Two Medals of Freedom vs. Two Sons of Thunder …. ….  standing before the Lord of the Earth.

An Iraq war Veteran confronts baby Bush on the lies that President Bush and Gen. Powell promoted.

Crimes against humanity should not be forgotten.
