“We are really appalled by any country, whether a superpower or a small country, that goes outside the U.N. and attacks independent countries,” Mandela said before meeting with French President Jacques Chirac at his Johannesburg home.
Was he serious, or just trying to make Chirac feel at home by setting a nice anti-American climate?
According to Mandela, “What they are saying is introducing chaos in international affairs, and we condemn that in the strongest terms.”
Better that we have stability with thugs and murderers in control than chaos and regime change. Explains why his neighbor, Mugabe, is still in control.
