Reagan was right on Mandela and South Africa

C26199-10_lightbox

Desmond Tutu denounced Reagans' policy on South Africa as: "Immoral, evil, and totally un-Christian...an abomination, an unmitigated disaster. You are either in favor of evil or you are in favor of good. You are either on the side of the oppressed or on the side of the oppressor. You can't be neutral." Good point, Mr Archbishop. Because on the welfare of Castro's regime you, sir, are hardly neutral, enthusiastically lending your name to the Stalinist regime's most important propaganda campaign right now, urging the release of convicted KGB-trained spies and terrorists.)

The media's orgy of vituperation and snark against president Reagan's policy on South Africa finally got a much-needed corrective from Reagan's communication's director of the time Pat Buchanan. To wit:

First off:

According to President Ronald Reagan in 1986:
"Apartheid is an affront to human rights and human dignity. Normal and friendly relations cannot exist between the United States and South Africa until it becomes a dead policy."...but and a BIG BUT:

"Reagan, whose first duty was the defense of his nation in the Cold War with the Soviet empire, saw not only the moral issue but the strategic imperative.

In 1986, there were 40,000 Cuban troops in Angola, where South Africa was a fighting ally and backer of anti-Communist Jonas Savimbi.

In Zimbabwe, Robert "Comrade Bob" Mugabe, having butchered thousands of Ndebele of rival Joshua Nkomo, was communizing his country. Southwest Africa and Mozambique hung in the balance.

Reagan was determined to block Moscow's drive to the Cape of Good Hope. And in that struggle State President P. W. Botha was an ally.

Y PAL CARAJO!

But as we well know, Political Correctness says that that every political entity, terrorist group and nation has complete justification for embracing allies (temporary or not) anyplace they find them --all nations that is, except the U.S. Never mind that if any nation deserves a pass on this issue it's the one that has put its money (along with the lives of tens thousands of its sons and daughters) where its mouth is promoting worldwide freedom.

In view of Political Correctness, however, Mandela's ANC apparently did more to promote worldwide freedom than the U.S. military!

In a splendid little tweak similar to his appointment of Aramando Valladares to the UN Human rights ambassador, Reagan appointed a black ambassador to South Africa and refused to accept segregated housing for the black U.S. diplomats in South Africa.

Oh, I know, I know, you're reading in the media how Castro's gallant and crackerjack military, "selflessly helped defeat South African Apartheid!" blah..blah....

But in fact:

cuitocuito2cuito3

Nothing could be more preposterous. In fact the horrendously outnumbered and ally-less SADF (South African Defense Forces) together with UNITA's wholly black forces thrashed and stomped and humiliated Castro's forces at Cuito Cuanavale to an absolutely embarrassing degree. In fact, according to Reagan's Asst Sec. of State Chester Crocker it was this thorough and humiliating stomping that paved the way for the cease fire and "neutralization" of Angola with the removal of both South African and Cuban troops.

Reagan was right.

Please don't miss this video. For reasons well known hereabouts at Babalu none of this stuff has ever been reported by the mainstream media.

    Reagan was indeed right about this squalid bunch of smooth-talking genocidal creeps. From first hearing people rave about his, mid-80s, could never stand that bishop doodoo. Just could not stand him, he came across as a phoney baloney who was shilling for the usual bunch of commie butchers.

    Mandevil? Necklacing tells us all we need to know. Forget the glamour photos, look for his early pictures, the ones where he isn't squinting and grinning but rather is looking wide eyed and serious: the eyes are stone-dead, hardened killer's eyes. Which makes sense because he committed terroristic murders.

    Any doubts, his silence as innocent South Africans were dragged behind cars until their faces were ground off speaks volumes.

    As to this grinning imp's legacy, Google "South Africa's Decline Steepens" to find a lovely video at 'moonbattery dot com', fun holiday hearthside viewing for the whole family.

    What's bishop doodoo got to say about the eighty-fold increase in South Africa's homicide rate under mandevil's ANC, hmmmm? Does the good cleric have anything to say about necklacing? No, he's silent. As was Mandevil. Because as they say in the military and the Courts, silence is affirmation.

    To see America's future under this bunch, look to South Africa and Zimbabwe.
