    It will be interesting to see what Obama does if Castro dies on his watch.

    Encouraged foreign capitalist investment, talked in-depth to the American financial giants and said "invest in us."

    Perhaps you have forgotten, or perhaps you wish to promote anti-Americanism.

    And what communist principles did he pursue when he became president, hmm?

    Did he nationalize the gold mines? No. Did he nationalize the banks? No. He ignored many of the tenets of the original ANC charter, instead opting for promoting foreign investment.

    He could've committed horrible revenge on whites, but he didn't. His past political affiliation does not diminish the good he did.

    Some of the conservatives in this country are putting a nice-sized object up the anus. Luckily, the idiots don't have power to speak of, otherwise they would have decreased the influence of the U.S.

    Nothing on earth could have decreased the influence of the US more than the election of the Liberal messiah.

    Apartheid rule ended before Mandela was released from Prison. It was South Africa's F.W. de Klerk who ended apartheid in South Africa.

    Margaret Thatcher played a significat role with winning the Cold War and also led Great Britain to war against Argentina that resulted in a dictator losing his power.

    As for President Obama ignoring the U.S. flag protocol and ordering the American flag to be flown at half mast for ten days, (No American soldier, Marine, sailor or airman received such honor and recognition for giving his life to country. Ten days !!!)

    Just more evidence that Obama doesn't look at himself as an American but as an internationalist socialist, honoring another internationalist socialist / terrorist.

    Well Mandala was a terrorist to the Apartheid regime does that make him a terrorist, no. If you want to follow that reasoning all the founding fathers of America were traitors and terrorists. It was Mandela's movement and leadership which caused Apartheid to end, De Klerk negotiated and signed it into law. Thatcher accomplished nothing that can rival freeing and entire race of people that inspired the world.

    A terrorist attacks civilian targets. That's what he did and orchestrated. The founding fathers actually built an army and fought them toe to toe. Now blowing up buses in crowded streets. Mandela himself was actually glad he went in because he'd rather of done that, then participate in that violent solution. It's the same reason that Malcom X isn't seen in the same light as MLK. One took the road, and the other sought to combat violence with violence.

    The ANC did not attack civilian targets they attacked infrastructure when Mandela was in control. The Founding Fathers also killed loyalists, innocent loyalists even after the revolution ended. Ever hear of tar and feathering.
