died with COVID not from old age, thought the vaxx was supposed to save lives? :monkey:

“General Colin L. Powell, former U.S. Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, passed away this morning due to complications from Covid 19. He was fully vaccinated. We want to thank the medical staff at Walter Reed National Medical Center for their caring treatment,” the Powell family said in a statement posted to Facebook.

Another in a long line of fake Republicans. You guys like Romney too except when he's running for President.
Pretty laughable that you guys are celebrating the WMD guy.

LOL but it's not a cult.

He's been running for President since 2007 or so. I think we stand a pretty good chance of watching him get 1% and told to pound sand by Augustus Donaldus Trumptavius in 2024.

Pretty laughable that you guys are celebrating the WMD guy.
Many such cases. Sad!

Didn’t he go lie to congress about WMDs in Iraq to help sell us on the war? He was principalled when he wanted to be.

anybody in the GOP who stood up in the last five years and pointed out the fraud in the White House more than atoned for his previous sins, in my book. ymmv.

Old school Republicans are hard to categorize these days.

He is no different from past warmongers who try to recant or make up for their sins. McNamara comes to mind:poop:
Maybe his God will find him accountable for all the innocent lives destroyed by his actions.

LOL!!!!! Invoking the "Crickets" response in less than two hours. So thirsty. Sorry. Had to drive to work and do a few things in those two hours you were waiting.

Real Republican? Fiscally and socially conservative and push for smaller government. There are very few real Republicans left. Most are closet big government democrats.

he underwhelmed.
All I remember of him is lying to the UN about WMD in Iraq with that bottle of white powder.

My colleagues, every statement I make today is backed up by sources, solid sources. These are not assertions. What we're giving you are facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence. I will cite some examples, and these are from human sources.
Orders were issued to Iraq's security organizations, as well as to Saddam Hussein's own office, to hide all correspondence with the Organization of Military Industrialization.
This is the organization that oversees Iraq's weapons of mass destruction activities. Make sure there are no documents left which could connect you to the OMI.
We know that Saddam's son, Qusay, ordered the removal of all prohibited weapons from Saddam's numerous palace complexes. We know that Iraqi government officials, members of the ruling Baath Party and scientists have hidden prohibited items in their homes. Other key files from military and scientific establishments have been placed in cars that are being driven around the countryside by Iraqi intelligence agents to avoid detection.
Slide 11
Thanks to intelligence they were provided, the inspectors recently found dramatic confirmation of these reports. When they searched the home of an Iraqi nuclear scientist, they uncovered roughly 2,000 pages of documents. You see them here being brought out of the home and placed in U.N. hands. Some of the material is classified and related to Iraq's nuclear program.
Tell me, answer me, are the inspectors to search the house of every government official, every Baath Party member and every scientist in the country to find the truth, to get the information they need, to satisfy the demands of our council?
Our sources tell us that, in some cases, the hard drives of computers at Iraqi weapons facilities were replaced. Who took the hard drives? Where did they go? What's being hidden? Why? There's only one answer to the why: to deceive, to hide, to keep from the inspectors.

Numerous human sources tell us that the Iraqis are moving, not just documents and hard drives, but weapons of mass destruction to keep them from being found by inspectors.
Our "intelligence" sources say..... :monkey:

He was another walking Power Point presentation at best.

These vaccines don't seem to work very well. TPTB appear to know this which is why they wanted boosters so bad.
