RE: Iraq was probably the only thing he got right. At least the second time. In the first round, in 1991, he forgot to take out Saddam. Which is why America needed a round two to take down that genocidal dictator.October 18, 2021 12:00 pm at 12:00 pm #2017919

ujm: How do you know that General Powell was (i) ungrateful, or (ii) an “affirmative action based appointee”?October 18, 2021 12:06 pm at 12:06 pm #2017931

Why didn’t his full vaccination help?October 18, 2021 12:15 pm at 12:15 pm #2017936

The vaccines are 95% effective. Those 5% who it’s ineffective for are probably grouped in the high risk cases, such as cancer patients or those over 80. Powell was both.
This shows the importance of everyone who didn’t have COVID in the last year to get vaccinated. Vaccinated people are far less likely to spread COVID to those who are in danger.October 18, 2021 12:25 pm at 12:25 pm #2017953October 18, 2021 12:37 pm at 12:37 pm #2017960☕️coffee addictParticipant
“He had cancer so the COVID created the finishing touch.“
Did he die from cancer or from Covid?
Last year we had countless Covid deaths due to comorbidity yet they were labeled Covid why mention his comorbidity over here?October 18, 2021 2:21 pm at 2:21 pm #2017987
Despite all his well earned criticism, it much be acknowledged with great appreciation that he was an excellent Shabbos Goy for the Bronx Jewish community.October 18, 2021 2:22 pm at 2:22 pm #2017985
(i) His endorsement of Obama in 2008, alleging that John McCain was “too right-wing” (!! don’t laugh too hard) is a prominent example. That after everything the Republicans did for him throughout his career. Suddenly he made an endorsement based on race.
(ii) Obviously evidence will, by definition, not be left visible, nevertheless an educated analysis clearly points to that based on the party’s need to have black cabinet members, military leaders, etc. to mollify the false accusations of racism. As well as the number of much better candidates passed over in favor of Powell.October 18, 2021 2:23 pm at 2:23 pm #2017980

Yesr -“Mai nafka minah if a COVID patient had co-morbidities or not? I never got that reasoning”
Because the implication of that is that Covid is life-threating.
It is, but in this case there’s no proof!
Because an immunocomprised patient could die from a cold.
And we don’t consider colds as a life-threatening disease!October 18, 2021 8:53 pm at 8:53 pm #2018196
To ujm, re your comment, posted 10/18, 2:22 pm: Your first paragraph refers to “everything the Republicans did for him [Powell]”. Evidently, you think Powell gave Republicans nothing in return. I think he gave them plenty.
Your second paragraph begins, “Obviously evidence will, by definition, not be left visible ….”
If evidence is not visible, how do we have evidence of anything. And you refer to a “careful analysis,” but you offer only conclusion with no analysis. You don’t name a single “more qualified” person to fill the positions he did. And, whether you know it or not, you state that Republicans appoint unqualified people to important positions. Is that the party you support?October 18, 2021 9:20 pm at 9:20 pm #2018222
huju: Please identify what you imagine Powell gave Republicans. Certainly not any even minimally significant voting base.
Offhand, some better candidates would have been Richard Perle, Richard Armitage or Paul Wolfowitz.
Appointing unqualified people to important positions is a Democrat specialty. Republicans sometimes make stupid appointments, but Democrats rarely make a non-foolhardy appointment.October 18, 2021 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #2018214Always_Ask_QuestionsParticipant
Two people who sparred about military strategy passed away in proximity – Don Rumsfeld and Colin Powell. Both were elevated by Reagan and served up to Bush 2. Both pondered running for President.
But differed in their approaches.
They are probably now organizing melachim. Don is arguing for giving malach Gavriel extra funds without supervision and sending him to China with a small entourage. Colin suggests a joint operation together with the Satan and United Melachim. Both meant well and each was sometimes right.October 18, 2021 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #2018231
This OP/thread may have set a record in covering such an extensive set of diverse topics (right in the opening post itself). Namely — vaccinations, Shabbos Goys, Covid, US cabinet positions, affirmative action, ingrates and military leaders.October 19, 2021 9:58 am at 9:58 am #2018396
He was an oheiv Yisroel, a brilliant military and political leader, and a staunch Conservative. He was a Republican for almost his entire life and the reasons he left the party was because he felt that they were no longer living up to his ideals. Now every yutz thinks that they’re a bigger Conservative than the guy who was basically one of the most important Republicans in American for two presidents just because he also supported the Democrats.October 19, 2021 10:21 am at 10:21 am #2018416
Yeserbius, you can’t be a conservative and support affirmative action.October 19, 2021 1:22 pm at 1:22 pm #2018499
Yseribus, Powell was a leftist who endorsed Obama both times, then Hillary Clinton and finally Biden. To him, a moderate/centrist like John McCain was “too right-wing”. No true Republican would’ve selected Obama over McCain or Mitt Romney. He couldn’t tell the difference between the political right and the political left.October 19, 2021 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #2018580
To ujm: Powell gave service in return for his appointments by Republicans. The fact of his second and subsequent appointments shows that his service was good.
