    answer you.  He screwed up.  I dont know how he will answer that regarding the Iraqi invasion.

    He walked the walk and the fight in Vietnam,  If you have read his book perhaps you will get some understanding of Colin Powell.  He was 'dropped' from the sky as a young man in the US Army, and he had to live with the natives for many many months, just like soldiers do.  I was not there, but I would love him to be our Secretary of State.

    I am white in case you want to have an issue with this.  I have also read the books of John McCain.

      Powell already had his chance as Secretary of State and fucked up royally by getting us into Iraq. Does that not mean anything to? Launching a war of aggression is no minor affair.

      He isn't the pristine hero that you and others claim. As far as his Vietnam record goes, don't forget he aided in whitewashing the My Lai Massacre.

      Whether it was My Lai or Iraq, he knew what he was doing. Especially in regards to Iraq, Mr. Powell knew Bush was lying and went along with it. There will never be an excuse for his complicity.
