Regardless of our new government etc - we are still a highly strategically placed nation with a massive mineral wealth - a huge percentage of the
world gold, platinum, diamonds and uranium are mined here. South Africa also has a political voice that is rather unique worldwide.
Not to carry this thread off-topic to much, but its interesting how Kr0n0s was so sure that South Africa would be wiped off the map by the US in the
case of an armed conflict. - It was this exact attitude that lead to the dire situation in Iraq and the Middle East - let’s be frank, in a nuclear
conflict, nobody would win, least of all the guys without nukes
- but in a conventional urban war - I would not underestimate the "South African
will" - our nation survived 60 years of International pressure, 20 years of armed conflicts throughout Africa. I do not want to debate the ideals
that backed these conflicts - but if you would like to do some research, please check this out: en.wikipedia.org...
This spirit exists here to this day - black, white, coloured or Indian -
To understand our support of delinquent nations like Iran, N.Korea, Cuba etc - you need to understand the history of the ANC and the support that
those countries gave to them during the Apartheid years. South Africa 'allegedly' supplied Uranium to Iran in 1996 - long before the latest
political mess over there. Kronos might do himself a favor and research the US weapon deals that takes place daily to just about anyone who is willing
Interestingly - South Africa is the only country to date that willingly discontinued and decommissioned its Nuclear weapon program. (We did in fact
detonate a nuke in September 1979 over the Indian ocean).
