Sad.

COVID-19 is still a killer. Much is yet to be known about it. Live humbly and carefully inits midst.

    Powell was fighting cancer. His immune system was weakened.

    People with weak immune systems are advised to avoid crowds and strangers. I wonder who infected him with Covid.

    No doubt, they'll do contact tracing, if they don't already know but, of course, there are so many cases that are mild or asymptomatic.

    “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,” Trump groused. “He was a classic RINO, if even that, always being the first to attack other Republicans. He made plenty of mistakes, but anyway, may he rest in peace!”

    Trump is not afraid to start feuds with dead patriots.

    Curt,

    As I pointed out in the past, Trump's been anti war all of his life. He's been at odds with Powell forever.

    Having said that, he's as classless as ever. No surprise here, eh?

    If Trump were really antiwar, he wouldn't have approved the sale of billions of dollars of industrial warfare equipment to the Saudis. Trump just doesn't like seeing American soldiers dying in wars.

    Donna,
    Not liking American soldiers dying in wars is a pretty low bar for anybody who calls them themselves an American.

    HtS,
    Claiming bone spurs doesn't make Trump a conscientious objector or anti-war in any sense.


  8. by HatetheSwamp on October 19, 2021 11:52 am

    Trump has opposed every war then and since.


  9. by Curt_Anderson on October 19, 2021 12:08 pm
    HtS,
    No, Trump did not oppose every war.


    In his 2000 book “The America We Deserve,” Trump argued that a military strike on Iraq might be necessary.

    Trump wrote that the US still did not know the true status of Iraq’s nuclear program. He then wrote, “I’m no warmonger. But the fact is, if we decide a strike against Iraq is necessary, it is madness not to carry the mission to its conclusion. When we don’t, we have the worst of all worlds: Iraq remains a threat, and now has more incentive than ever to attack us.”

    He continued: “Am I being contradictory here, by presenting myself as a deal-maker and then recommending preemptive strikes? I don’t think so. There’s nothing really comparable to unleashing a squadron of bombers, but in the world of business sometimes you have to make quick, secret, decisive moves in order to gain a negotiating advantage.”

    In 2002, Howard Stern asked Trump if he supported the looming invasion.

    Trump responded, "Yeah, I guess so." That's not pacifism, that's indecisive.

    Trump was ambivalent at best.
