    Just watched Colin Powell on the Fox morning news show, and I was most impressed. He is a truly great man, a man of strong principle, and a credit to all the US. What a fantastic world leader!

  5. actually the hawks in the bush administration were getting fed up with him as he resisted the war, but now he is on the same page with them. my earlier comments were not directed at you, my guess is you were not aware of this internal conflict in the administration.

    it should read "relative to those he surrounds ...." - shouldn´t it ?


    War propaganda
    From Disinfopedia, the encyclopedia of propaganda.

    War propaganda is used to confuse and demoralize enemies and also to influence public opinions in friendly countries. Often, a nation at war uses propaganda to control its own citizens. According to British scholar F.M. Cornford, "Propaganda is that branch of the art of lying which consists in very nearly deceiving your friends without quite deceiving your enemies."

    Indeed, a great man, and a great leader. And exactly the kind of man that transcends party line politics.

    We should all be proud we have such a qualified and honorable man in place as Sec. State at such an important time in our history.

    Peace,
    :)rs7
