That's a handsome man.

I knew a guy who met General Powell in Vietnam, he wasn't a general then. He said that he brought my friend to the officers mess and had a pork chop with him. He described him as a wonderful person.

I see the term "hero" has totally lost all meaning on Fark.

I wonder if he took any cock pics.

Colin Powell is probably the closest thing this site has seen in many moons.

His role in covering up My Lai was awesome. So was his UN speech where he knowingly lied to the world about Iraqi WMDs.

Neat guy.

I think masturbation was invented a long time before he was born.

Colin Powell had been covering up malfeasance for years and years before throwing the credibility he somehow earned to help sell the Bush-Cheney Axis's desire for war in Iraq.  fark that guy.  Right in the ear.  He's white people's idea of what a toadie black person should be.

If by "Hero" you mean "moral coward", then yes.

Actually my comment was referring to subby saying Powell is somehow a hero for doing selfies 60 years ago, which to me is silly.

He may or may not deserve a hero tag for plenty of other things, but I make no comment on that issue as I see this thread is going to political and I usually don't participate in political debates on Fark.

Submitter's headline is rather presumptuous, as I have no "duck-faced" friends.

I tell my kids when a stranger says he's my friend, he's lying.  I have no friends.

Can anyone explain the duck face thing? It always reminds me of an old Beavis & Butthead show where they're watching a video of a girl who's got her ass stuck so far out Beavis says, "What's wrong with her back?" Butthead: That means she's hot, dumbass.

Models pout to make themselves look hotter. It works.

Idiots do the duck face because they think it makes themselves look hotter. It does not work.

That was all accurate intelligence at the time, and agencies as varied as Russia and Israel agreed with it.  But then he sold out to Obama because blackness so now I don't know WHO to believe!

Powell's UN speech was ridiculed at the time. The UN inspectors on the ground in Iraq flatly contradicted him. His allegations of Iraqi collusion with al Qaeda had been debunked months before the speech.

Less than two weeks after his performance, the world showed it's opinion when the largest demonstrations in all of human history were staged to protest Bush administrations war mongering. That is not an exaggeration - the largest protests ever seen on Earth occurred in February 2003.

The deceit from Washington was obvious to anybody who didn't depend on American television for news.
