    Nelson believed that people who hate can love... obviously he never visited PH.

    Well, what I've read about the condition in South Africa at that time, he did good. He certainly doesn't deserve to be compared Bin Laden as one poster said. Made my blood boil.

    The injustices and horror in that country took a man who was complex and controversial to break that government. He was the Martin Luther King of South Africa.

    Which bin Laden, Reagan's freedom fighter, or Bush's terrorist?

    Are conditions better in South Africa today?

    Martin Luther King did not have to kill anybody.

    Neither did Gandhi.

    Invalid comparisons.

    He's no saint:
    Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. At his trial, he had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilising terrorist bombing campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and children, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s MK terrorists.

    He is more like the Ho Chi Minh of South Africa, and I say that as an admirer of what Ho did for his people in freeing them from French and American interference in their right to sovereignty.

    And sometimes when they lose, they are still called freedom fighters (a la, the Contras)
