Caitlin Johnstone and SLL won’t be contributing to the Powell hagiography. From Johnstone at caitlinjohnstone.com;
Over the years Powell’s meme has been an invaluable asset for opponents of western military interventionism and critics of US propaganda narratives about empire-targeted nations, serving as a single-image debunk of any assertion that it is sensible to trust the claims US officials make about any government that Washington doesn’t like.
In online discourse the Powell meme makes the perfect response to anyone regurgitating an unsubstantiated claim about a government that has been targeted for disobeying the dictates of the US empire.
“We must remove Assad by any means necessary because he’s killing Syrians with poison gas!”
Oh yeah? Boom. Powell meme.
