“Wonderful to see Colin Powell, who made big mistakes on Iraq and famously, so-called weapons of mass destruction, be treated in death so beautifully by the Fake News Media. Hope that happens to me someday…”
The Professor’s Record (David K. Clements):
“We’ve all heard the phrase “Don’t speak ill of the dead.”
In the case of Colin Powell, meh. Powell was a snake that lied to the American people.
He was an unflinching supporter of communists Hillary Clinton, W., and Barack Hussein Obama.
Thousands of American soldiers died because of his lies.
The military industrial complex gained a foothold in the Middle East, based on the faulty intelligence Powell peddled through the snake news.
The more recent embarrassment in Afghanistan can find its origins with Powell and the military industrial complex.
Moreover, the 20 year conflict in the Middle East proceeded on a UN Authorization, and not a Congressional Declaration of War.
The wars were unconstitutional, and antithetical to an America First agenda.
Don’t speak ill of the dead?
I hope Powell found Jesus, because the man profited by the death of our countrymen.”
And by the way, more from Clements:
“Even if we could declare war on terrorist organizations, why would you?
Terrorists are not representative of a nation.
The Founders would have used the letters of marque and reprisal against terrorists.
The letters of marque and reprisal were used against pirates not officially affiliated with a country. Pirates are terrorists.
Purpose? To kill the enemy with efficiency.
We could have used this remedy against any terrorist without becoming the world’s police.
What does the military industrial complex do?
Carry out the most bloated and inefficient war in history.
Occupy land, kill our soldiers, and get rich off the taxpayer.
