Colon Pow!

By Wyatt Earp | April 30, 2006

I guess it’s the General’s turn to pile on.

“WASHINGTON – Just back from Baghdad and eager to discuss promising developments, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice found herself knocked off message Sunday, forced to defend prewar planning and troop levels against an unlikely critic – Colin Powell, her predecessor at the State Department.

On Rice’s mind was the political breakthrough that had brought her and Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld to Iraq last week and cleared the way for formation of a national unity government.

Yet Powell sideswiped her by revisiting the question of whether the U.S. had a large enough force to oust Saddam Hussein and then secure the peace. He said he advised Bush before the U.S.-led invasion in March 2003 to send more troops to Iraq, but that the administration did not follow his recommendation.”

If Powell had any real courage, he would have made a stink about this, in America, THREE YEARS AGO!!!

I have just a few questions for “General” Powell:

  • How successful would the administration have been if they asked to deploy more troops to Iraq, when the liberals and the Dems were already pissing about the original number?
  • If the U.S. and the coalition did not have a large enough force to topple Saddam Hussein, then why is he now sitting in prison?
  • How would Colon Pow! “secure the peace” in Iraq, when the U.S. can barely secure peace within its own borders. Hey, General, my city is averaging one homicide a day. Has Philadelphia “secured the peace?” Ass.

The best part about this story is that all of the liberal whackos who hated his guts and referred him to an “Uncle Tom” will now jump on his bandwagon, claiming he has clarity of vision. Despicable.

    It’s all about what is politically expediant. Just like the post I left at Shoot A Liberal about people who need impaling. At a rally calling for an end to the genocide in Sudan, George Clooney, Nancy Pelosi, and Barrack Obama where there showing the world how much they care. Knowing that if W decided to send troops there tomorrow to stop this crap they would be calling it a quagmire etc etc etc

    “Uncle Tom” – I love that phrase. I always imagine the Chris Rock bit comparing blacks and “the other blacks”. Too funny.

    Also, I’m surprised that you haven’t written something about the most important workforce group in our country today…ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS. Let’s build up the Iraqi troop count by sending them to Iraq. They can protest over there, too. Screw you….go mow my neighbors lawn!

    It is despicable and for the record I have never liked Colin Powell. Everybody would sing his praises but I always thought he was a lukewarm, moderate and they never illicit much respect from me.

    Powell can run for Veep on the McCain/Hillary ticket. That’s all this is about.
    Go Condi!

    Fm – Again, if Colon were really so self-righteous, he would have run to the press at the outset of the war.

    SK – Thanks!

    BWH – Thanks, again!

    Randal – “Screw you….go mow my neighbors lawn!” Now THAT’S funny!!!

    LMC – In my opinion, he was a very good Chief of Staff, but he’s way out of line here.

    Sssteve – Thank you.

    Bob – Great. Then I will have no problem NOT voting for any of them.

    ALL – BTW, I have been trying to post since 3pm, and Blogger is on the fritz . . . AGAIN!!! AARGH!!!

    I heard an interview with Powell and he said that Rummy and the other Generals DID LISTEN TO HIM. They just weighed all their options and chose to send a smaller force. Powell wasn’t trying to be an a**hat (like Weasley Clark), but the MSM wants him to look that way.
