I was surprised to see Colin Powell commenting on world affairs. Somehow in my mind, he belongs to the terrible days of the Iraq war even though he, just like the nation, was lied to by George Bush. The amazing aspect of the Iraq war was that Bush had in his Cabinet, Powell, a man who had chaired the Joint Chiefs of Staff and understood what war was all about.So, who did George the II decide to seek advice from–Dick Cheney who got out of the draft by asking for one deferment after another and had absolutely NO understanding of modern warfare.
The other day, Powell nailed the Iraq problem. “We did it right in the first Gulf war. Once you pull out the top of a government, unless there is a structure under it to give structure and security to society, you can expect a mess.”
How about Powell throwing his hat into the Democratic party primary? At least there will be no questions about emails. On the other hand, there is always Fox News to create problems when none exist!
