    I don't think Britain or France ever looked upon themselves as being freedom fighters.

    Was Fidel Castro a remarkable man or an ordinary man who became a communist revolutionist terrorist dedicated to socialism ?
    Mandela didn't exert control over his people in the same manner as Castro so why would you compare the two?

    After hearing yesterday what's really going on in South Africa yesterday, that there are still black Africans being necklaces and if you have or had a connection to the ANC, you ain't going to prison.

    Have you read the rap sheet on that guy standing next to Obama doing the hand language thing during Mandela's memorial ?

    Either our Secret Service has become as incompetent as Obama or the South African security ageancies are as incompetent as Obama.

    Hmmmm, who is making the necklaces? At any account, why should South Africa hold political prisoners? Isn't that what Castro did?

    You shouldn't be talking about AVs. That's called trolling.

    Neither, just rebels who didn't use terrorism against the people, not even the Tories.

    They waged a revolution like men who had a pair. They engaged the Red Coats on the field of battle and at sea.

    Where I'm from, they call it curiosity. Seriously, I can't make head nor tail of it. No offence.
