The 'judge it" icons are a true indicator of troll self validation. Poor little wall flower.

These very carefully worded statements are double standards. Imagine if similar cautious wording had been used in connection with South Africa's Apartheid policies in 70s and 80s -- "South Africa's blatant discrimination against Blacks 'complicates' it's relationship with the US" -- come on!!

Why haven't we heard a single suggestion of sanctions against Uganda?!

Because they would never get past the U.N. Security Council.

On top of everything else going wrong in the world, Russia is complicating Syria because it can, and is re-invading the Crimean region of the Ukraine as we speak.

Who is talking about the UN? Why doesn't the US impose sanctions against Uganda as they did against South Africa??

South Africa only worked because it was in concert with the community of nations. Actually, the USA was last to that party.

Yes, the US was not the first to that party, but it hardly matters. NO, SA was definitely NOT in concert with the community of nations. It was a pariah. SA could no longer participate in any international sports, it had walked out of the Commonwealth, and was not allowed into events such as the Olympic Games. Sanctions were starting to hurt it's economy and the writing was on the wall. Now why is it that Uganda cannot be placed in the same position due to it's evil anti-homosexual discrimination?!

My sentence meant that OUR divestiture and sanctions OF South Africa only worked because it was in concert with the community of Nations.
