you know the British considered George Washington a terrorist.<quoted text>
Mr. Mandela was a terrorist in his younger days that is a statement of fact. How would you describe his terrorist activities? The murders? How would you describe a "Winnie necklace"??
You would cry foul when posters pointed out the signer at Mandela's memorial was fake as your outrage. Schizophrenia no less, rapist, murderer and mental illness episode during memorial claimed he was seeing angels less than 6 feet from the POTUS...who dropped the damn ball on that one?
South Africas apartheid regime designated Mandelas African National Congress (ANC) as a terrorist organization for its battle against the nations legalized system of racial segregation that lasted from 1948 to 1994. Now that's what I call the pot calling the kettle black.
The ANC was fighting apartheid, I don't think of that as terrorism, but fighting for independence and freedom. No different than what our Revolutionary Army did when fighting the British.
Even Dick Cheney voted to have the U.S. gov't recognize the ANC. Reagan and his lap dog Thatcher felt otherwise.
