They thought they could do anything as their goal was so justified.
Some of you will already know that Mandela led the "MK", basically the terrorist faction of the ANC. Mandela was personally responsible for signing off numerous killings, bombings (inluding the infamous church street bomb) and...erm....more killings of innocent women and children. And gays. I made that bit up. My mind says that these attacks were aimed at white people. This is just a guess, I have no facts and have not resourced this, I could easily but I'm voicing my uninformed mind on this. It's a gut feeling as I write. Why? Because EXTREMISTS target the opposition! Race doesn't come into it bizarrely! In this case it does but that's not the point. It's certainly not my point. He was extremist albeit to a cause that the 'normal' person would support. Hard to evaluate.
Mandela's fight was a very, very valid one, but the world has condoned his terrorist actions because "the cause was worth it". Fact. Well, I'll tell you something about every struggle in the world, say the muslim fight against the western infidels; believe me, the extremists really REALLY believe that their struggle is 'worth the cause'. Others do not and take a harsh view on such terrorist actions.
As for Winnie Mandela's football team they were right fucking head-the-balls not that I've ever heard of them. Honest....
As for Mandela giving South Africa's highest honour to Colonel Gaddafi (no less) and that crazy bastard from Indonesia for their support of the ANC to the tune of $60m or something, again, is beyond me.
I think "the world" has decided that his rights outdo his wrongs and are willing to forget them. As for me I can't condone his actions. Freeeeeeeee Nelson Mandela? Fuuuuuuuuuck Nelson Mandela more like. No, that's way to harsh. I just cannot condone it and nor would the modern world.
They certainly wouldn't sing for his release.
I'm as controversial as FUCK me!
Coming next week, a light hearted view on Mugabe's hand picked sex slaves, a controversial review of Mark Spitz: Tom Daley Swallows, and a Yorkshire tick over Hessle!!!! Fucking hell's teeth!
Is Ring necked Parakeet a description species for Yorkshire? I fucking hope not cos the last description I submitted sounded like either a juv Grey Heron or a Rufous Tailed Bushchat! Mind you, I was proper pissed when I wrote it. Fuckj knows if is "in circulation" or it's just been chucked out within 13 seconds of reading the report.
I like random photos.
Now here's me dressed as a skeleton at a Hallowe'en party:
Shut it bitch.
