I hate the term 'terrorist'. At what point did old ‘terrorists’ like Menachem Begin and Nelson Mandela, after they won their liberation struggles, become ‘statesmen’ and worthy of Nobel Peace Prizes?
The reason this thread begins is because I read this from a post in "A little foreign policy 'riddle' for ya" and it strikes me as impossible that someone could include Nelson Mandela with terrorists of any kind.
Since it sounds like trolling for a fight I'll excuse myself from further posting in this thread beyond my next sentence:
Could someone show me why (other than his wife's nasty business), because I never knew of Nelson Mandela doing anything public before his imprisonment beyond being the leader of an opposition political party - the ANC.
I think you missed my point.
Of course, Mandela and Begin weren't terrorists, they were freedom fighters, however they were once regarded as 'terrorists' by some here in 'the West'.
