You are of course free to voice your opinions, but saying shit like that on a RIP thread over someones death probably reflects your malicious personality...I disliked Thatcher's policies intensely but I wasn't one of these childish moronic whiners who went to disrupt her funeral and trash talked her over the internet. That is just ridiculous.

Thatcher didn't burn people and advocate the killing of whites. Slight difference there.

Excuse me for not wanting to praise a terrorist.


Lovely chap. Lets hope the worms feed well.

So what is the difference between a terrorist and freedom fighter?

Less people to worry about for the rest of us.

Frankly people can wipe each other out for all I care I grow sick of seeing ads everywhere for feeding starving children.

I find it funny that your all fighting over the accomplishments/acts of a man who is now dead. Just like with the MJ case all of you just like to rip heads off over someones life story; whether right or wrong. Just let the man R.I.P, and give him the respect he deserves.

But..........while were on the subject he did what was necessary to fight for change. His message of Understanding and Peace is a great one, and should be echoed around the world for all to hear. However you cannot effect change if all you do is preach and use words of peace. As Sun Tzu once said,"Sometimes in order to defeat the monster we must become the monster itself."

Point made somewhere down the road he made a judgement call, or said certain words, or committed such an action that is reviewed to death by the modern media. Overall the man was a good person who fought for what he truely believed in; something that seems so rare in this modern world.

Wow dude... seriously?

So countless of innocents can die, including children who never got a fair shot at a decent life due the circumstances they were born to, just so you have to look at less advertisements appealing to your humanity to help them...

I mean I don't like some people's opinions on this thread with regards to Mandela, but that's just how life goes. Some choose to focus on certain aspects of the man while others focus on different ones. There is enough gray areas in his history that there is room for debate. So I am prepared to let that lie there and agree to disagree with the people who just label him a terrorist. I personally think he was a great man forced to do evil actions for what he believed a good cause (and I believe was one too). But like I said, opinions differ and all that.

But what you said... I'm sorry but that's just messed up.

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.

You mean Nietzsche?

Who said; "He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster".
Sun Tzu never said anything of the sort.
