willygarr/canook,

Surely you can do better than this.

Who would that think anyone that has served in the Military would try and create racial divide within this country. We had hope for you, but unfortunately you crossed the line of hate.

My point is your party is so full of racists that they are attacking each other over color.

"the left has its Ghandis, Mandelas, and Martin Luther Kings"

The Left also had their Stalins, Maos, and Pol Pots. What your point? Are you really going to try to push this silly and false Left/Right paradigm on the rest of us?

Off topic and honestly not deserving a response. What is your point with this post?

veritas,

Not rooting for failure, only speaking facts. I wish the best for the people of South Africa but they have a president like the USA. A narcissist that is only concerned about his presidolt legacy. He's not concerned about the economy or the less fortunate. He's only concerned about himself.

nt4m,

I hope I'm not talking over your head. We all honor Mandela's sacrifice and contribution to his country and people. The fact remains that they are still not doing as well as most people of the world would hope. They have a government that is ripe with corruption. Somehow and somewhere you want to make this racist and conservative.

notea, your guys doing a bang up job also. The number of U.S. battlefield fatalities exceeded the rate at which troop strength surged in 2009 and 2010, prompting national security analysts to assert that coinciding stricter rules of engagement led to more deaths. The politically motivated rules, which might have been written by the Taliban, restrain US troops from firing and curtail the airstrikes and artillery barrages that protect them during operations. “In Afghanistan, the [rules of engagement] that were put in place in 2009 and 2010 have created hesitation and confusion for our war fighters,” said Wayne Simmons, a retired U.S. intelligence officer who worked in NATO headquarters in Kabul as the rules took effect, first under Army Gen. Stanley M. McChrystal, then Army Gen. David H. Petraeus. “It is no accident nor a coincidence that from January 2009 to August of 2010, coinciding with the Obama/McChrystal radical change of the [rules of engagement], casualties more than d

40% percent of the population in South Africa which are predominately black live on $2.00 a day. While we all support the abolition of apartheid. We have to ask if the people have the living conditions have improved for them. They currently have a leader and government that was booed at the memorial service.

according to the lame stream media it's ok to do mass killings as long as they are whites.

"did he not kill people?"

George W. Bush ordered up the deaths of over 5,000 U.S. soldiers and scores of innocent Iraqi men, women and children -- over "faulty intel."

Shock and Awe turned to "oopsidaisy" and beyond the cost in human lives -- Bush's catastrophe cost the nation 1.3 TRILLION DOLLARS.
