In my youth we had conscription for whites in SA to fight the Marxists and Cubans in Angola at the behest of the US.
But never mind the cold war in Africa, or the fact that the ANC only got removed from the US terrorism list in 2008.
I mean they also funded them.
Now Jubilee 2000 and similar groups want apartheid reparations from all the organizations and companies that did business with apartheid.
That would cost the US consumer.
Then of course it is claimed that US evangelical groups are highly active in Africa, and push homophobia.
If the US political right is active in sub-Saharan Africa, then why not the left?
First we were unaligned as the "third world".
Neither aligned to NATO or the first world, nor communism and the second world.
Now we are between radical Christian and Islamist religions, with a good dose of communism.
I'd say if the US has no role in SA then they should stop broadcasting their propaganda and religious crap, and bugger off back to the Bible-belt.
But since that's not going to happen, and their preachers will keep fleecing our poor, all I can say is come for a visit.
Then you will see the complexity of the issues.
