39. Colin Powell led us to an unnecessary war using blatant lies & unverified information.
If I was one of the members of a family who was killed by the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld/Powell regime I would name General Colin Powell as the worst general ever. He deliberately lied to the United Nations with nothing to substantiate his idiotic claims. If you believe Powell was just following orders from Bush, then Powell could have resigned, stated the reasons for his resignation and perhaps he could have stopped the Iraq War before it started.

Colin Powell is the worst general in my lifetime because he was part of a war machine that killed hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis and over 5,000 American soldiers' lives. It also caused the loss of limbs, eyes and spirits of 35,000 American soldiers. And ALL of this loss was for nothing. Our soldiers were used as a low-paid mercenary force only in Iraq to protect the financial interests of corrupt republican friendly corporations.

The entire Bush regime should be tried for treason, and that includes General Colin Powell.
