For many Iraqis , Colin Powell was the face of the US invasion which caused an estimated 200,000 deaths , unleashing nearly two decades of domestic chaos and precipitating turmoil throughout the region. His death , at the age of 84, was unlamented by many in a country still grappling with the aftermath of a Not for them and not for us.” Politicians remained largely mute – as did Iraqi media. Social media, on the other hand, lit up with critiques of Powell ’s role in making the case to invade. In the south of Iraq , the US invasion which ousted Saddam Hussein – but left carnage in its wake – is

The death of General Colin Powell has drawn an outpouring of sympathy and praise from politicians, but social media users made “war criminal” trend instead, having not forgiven Powell for his role in the 2003 invasion of Iraq . Powell died on Monday of complications from Covid-19, according to his family. He was eulogized in major media outlets as the first black secretary of state and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. President Joe Biden said Powell embodied “the highest ideals of both warrior and diplomat,” while 43rd president George W. Bush called him a “great public servant.”

While the tributes flock for General Colin Powell, who died of COVID-19 on Monday, October 18, Iraq has more bitter memories of the former Secretary of State. In his speech in February 2003 before the United Nations Security Council, he had to present the evidence of the presence of weapons of massive destruction in Iraq. But no weapon has been found. Eighteen years later, Iraqis still live the consequences of its "state lie".

My father looked up to Colin Powell quite a lot actually. My dad was an army officer and, to him, seeing a black man rise to such a prominent role in the military and further on into appointed office was really powerful for him. He had staked his reputation on the presence of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction - and his reputation suffered for it. In his later years, Powell became a different kind of icon. His drift away from the Republican Party following Donald Trump's rise to power reflected the dwindling influence of Powell 's moderate, internationalist faction within the American conservative movement.

Colin Powell had by this time been promoted to the rank of full General and was serving as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. A fellow General, Norman Schwarzkopf, was in the process of finalizing a campaign plan that put two Marine Divisions on the ground in a classic ground combat Powell , however, was sensitive to the political fallout from images of the destruction of an Iraqi convoy outside Kuwait City by US aircraft. This so-called “highway of death ” was causing people to begin to question what had otherwise been a flawless campaign. Powell argued that the fighting should come

The speech of Colin Powell pronounced before the United Nations Security Council marked the spirits in Iraq. The one who was then US Secretary of State had to present the evidence of the existence of weapons of mass destruction in the country. But it was mostly revealed a state lie that led to a particularly bloody war, remembers Nahla, 56 years old:

"His report presented before the UN pushed George Bush Jr. to invade Iraq. So I wonder today if his soul met the souls of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi victims, he would surely ask them forgiveness, but would they forgive him? I'm not sure of that. What I'm sure, on the other hand, is that his reputation will be tarnished forever.

years later, Colin Powel described himself his speech of an "indelible spot" on his career and reputation .

Colin Powell , the first Black US secretary of state, has died aged 84 from Covid complications. He was a retired four-star general who served as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff in the early 1990s. Before the 2003 US invasion of Iraq , Powell made the case to the United Nations security council that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein had biological weapons and was developing nuclear weapons. He later said that this represented 'a blot' that will 'always be a part of my record'. Although he was a Republican, in 2008 he endorsed Barack Obama for president.

Colin Powell , who was the first black person to serve as United States Secretary of State, has passed away, his family announced on Monday in a post on his Facebook page, according to a report by RT. “We have lost a remarkable and loving husband, father, grandfather, and a great American,” they I’m sure Powell ’s complications from COVID would have been worse has he not been vaccinated.

"It was only an employee"

several times, he expressed his regrets publicly, and said that he did not believe himself in that evidence that he had been asked to submit before the UN .

Ahmed, 34 years old, does not keep him rigorous: "Colin Powell was a member of the government. He is not responsible for me with everything that happened in Iraq next. It was only an employee.

remains that with this speech, Colin Powell became one of the actors of this war in Iraq, of which the consequences are always visible today .
