I don't want to make the article about his comments today, though. What I want to reveal is the true character of Colin Powell ~ that his actions are guided by what he gains by them personally it reveals the true character of Colin Powell. He does things for personal gain and not selfless patriotism. He is perfectly comfortable not telling the truth, and his comments and actions, both recent and past, should be known by all. So-called Republicans like him do not help our cause, and are convenient tools our opponents use to further divide us.
I know our party is the party of the Right Message.. a message which is NOT racist, intolerant or extreme. Colin Powell is wrong. Unlike others who want to see him continue making a fool of himself, I would rather he find the nearest EXIT door and start his own "C" (for Cocktail) Party if he does not like ours. We do not need or want him!
The following personal account of what Colin Powell did during the My Lai Massacre incident in VietNam is written by a friend who shared it in my group yesterday.
By Carl Irwin
Everyone has heard about the My Lai Massacre that took place in Vietnam, I know a lot about that incident because I was in that unit, not the infantry company that did the killing but the infantry battalion they belonged to. I am not going to go into what happened or what caused it to happen but the aftermath.
A high ranking officer in our unit withheld letters from soldiers telling about what happened and also lied to reporters and military investigators about what happened, and that officer was Captain Colin Powell, and he was rewarded very well for his loyalty. Look at his back ground, there is nothing there that ever qualified the man for the high positions he was later given. The guy will do or say anything to promote Colin Powell and will stab anyone or group in the back if thats what it takes.
This is a picture of our firebase which was only about 5 miles from My Lai. At the top right of the picture is the village of Tu Mai, which is a refugee camp we set up. Any people outside of that camp were considered enemy and were fired upon. The firebase you are looking at was hit every single day with anywhere from 5 to 30 motor and rocket rounds. The only way in and out of the base was by air, for most of its existence the NVA had the base cut off from roads leading into it.The article below is about the My Lai Massacre incident, and supports Carl's personal account about how Captain Colin Powell's chose to lie about it. It says a lot about a man's character that he would do this and it makes one question what else he has been lying about, and why our leaders have considered him a coveted supporter of their party.
