No,however,one should'nt shrug ones shoulders at a known coup d'etat on a leader who was elected and bent on independence,orchestrated by Belgian mining interests AND the good 'ol US State Department(under the standard guise of stopping Communists)...And has set that particular country back for more than 5 decades and cost millions upon millions of lives...
That's what votin' is fer.
When Mobutu Sese Seko dies,he was one of the 30 richest men in the world...What did Zaire get for the interference that allowed him to come to power,other than poverty and death?
They are not children running the show in the Third World and are largely responsible for their own strife. America doesn't go into any region saying: "Why not off a million of your own people, Shiek Yerbootie?"
That's more their doing. Remember, guns don't kill people. People kill people. Thanks to video uploads, we now know that a jagged knife or a cement block works just fine.
There's no pretty way to put that...And there was,in fact,no excuse for it...
Sure, I agree. I'm not going to get all wrist-slitty over it, mind-you.
