    Never had a spectrum, never wanted one either. But I would have loved one of the C5s

    Colin Powell died of COVID-19 though being fully vaccinated.

    [...] Powell had multiple myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells that suppresses the body's immune response. Even if fully vaccinated against Covid-19, those who are immunocompromised are at greater risk from the virus.

    Well now he's dead he'll find it harder to fabricate evidence and lie to the United Nations.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Sadly that speech is the first thing that comes to mind when I hear his name. My jaw actually dropped in disbelief while watching it.

    That's how I knew Barry O was full of bullshit from day one of his presidency, when he had zero intentions of rectifying what we did in Iraq and Afghanistan and letting the responsible parties go completely unpunished. Anyway, fuck Powell.

    Powell was also part of downplaying the My Lai massacre. He wasn't present until after the event but when asked to investigate after a letter was sent to Abrams he refuted the claims saying that US relations with the Vietnamese population were excellent. He was a cog in the machine who put the machine first his entire career.
