    Can you please show me specific policies that Mandela implemented as President that made South Africa communist, and how his beliefs as a young man changed over the course of his imprisonment... including before his release from prison meeting various business leaders and forming a pro capitalist society where private enterprise flourishes, comparatively to the rest of the continent and communist nations.

    Hell we even have our own homegrown fast food chains... if that's not a sign of capitalism I don't know what is...

    And are you still going to argue that the White Apartheid Regime gunning down defenceless blacks in the streets was better for the country?

    I'll be waiting for your answer.

    Jet does live in Canada.

    Jet is From South Africa.

    Jet knows what you're talking about.

    And that does not prove that

    A) Mandela is a ardent communist (he's not, he's more of a social democrat)

    B) That South Africa is a communist nation (It's not)

    C) That South Africa under Apartheid is better (It wasn't) and any self respecting black man would never say such a thing.

    I thought apdst was one of the less ranting conservatives, but I now chance my stance.
    Seriously, you think that South Africa was better without Mandela? For heaven's sake, he might be a commie, but he brought good sense to the South African people. Not all commies are bad, you know.
    At least, he didn't massacre the South African people.
    If I had to choose between a racist and a commie, I'd choose the commie

    The thread was going off topic, and I kinda knew the thread will receive a mod warning ever since people started to talk about South Africa.
    Back to Egypt, my opinion is that a military dictatorship is being established. Of course, the ruling military promised elections and such, but previous military dictatorships made the same empty promises before in history. The Egyptians, sadly, has gotten all the bloodshed and the resulting chaos for nothing. They're no better off under Mubarak then they are now. The Korean during the 60's, 70's, and 80's had the same kind of military dictatorships too. Park-Chung-Hee, a military dictator, took over when Lee-Syngman-Man (the first Korean president/dictator) was overthrown by people's protest. He also had the power of the military take over, promised the same kind of democratic elections, and ruled for more than a decade until he was assasinated.

    Can anyone prove that the military ever gave up power in Egypt? All I saw was the military removing its backing of Mubarak due to international pressure brought to bear by the Muslim Brotherhood and replacing him with the current power structure.
    The question is more important than the answer!
