    Colon Plugged is a RINO at best. He's also anti-gun.

    He uses his color to his supposed advantage depending on the situation. Typical.

    He showed his true colors when he endorsed Obama in the first election.

    The Iraq war and ten plus years of aftermath showed me that Powell and GWH Bush were absolutely right in their predictions of the consequences of invading. How many US lives and trillions of dollars have been lost because of GW Bush's decision to overthrow Saddam? Has it been worth it?

    Colin Powell has always been a Token and RINO. A Sheep in Wolfs clothing. No Conservative should believe in anything he espouses.

    Pocatello, quote: <i>"The Iraq war and ten plus years of aftermath showed me that Powell and GWH Bush were absolutely right in their predictions of the consequences of invading.

    I disagree.

    It was Powell and GHW Bush who set the stage for the mess that Clinton ignored and GW Bush finally had to deal with.

    Powell and GHW Bush decided to call the war off short. This left Saddam in power. THAT was the critical mistake. Every decision since, good, bad or otherwise, is traceable to this incredibly poor decision.

    Ask yourself how many US lives and trillions of dollars would have been saved if Iraq had been completely taken over by the US right then and there?

    Further, some of the media is finally admitting that there were weapons of mass destruction that were taken out of the country to Syria, etc., that would have been intercepted and under our control?

    How is the US better off removing Saddam and having the Shiites take control? How is the US better off letting the Shah be deposed and having the mullahs take control of Iran? Is it going to be to our benefit for Mubarak to be replaced in Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood? Who will replace Assad in Syria if not another religious fundamentalist regime shouting "Death to America!"? We would have been far better off staying out of the whole mess and letting them have the governments they deserved, rather than play nation builder and try to force democracy on religious fanatics. We certainly should not be sending them foreign aid and advanced weapon systems in an attempt to buy their friendship.
