Bombings by South Africa

May 28, 1986

Congratulations to South Africa for dealing firmly with terrorists based in adjoining countries, thus paralleling our own action in dealing with terrorists in Libya. South Africa's action was even more imperative than our own, since in their case the threat was close to their own borders, whereas in our case it was thousands of miles away.

Lest anyone has forgotten, the African National Congress, South Africa's principal target, is virtually synonymous with the South African Communist Party and has been since its inception, with several of the offices in both organizations filled by the same men. It has been on record more than once in advocating the overthrow by the duly elected South African government by force and violence. This is the same kindly group of "freedom fighters" that seized a black African girl accused of being a collaborator with the government, dousing her with gasoline, and setting her afire.

Communists the world over are our sworn enemies. Any nation that opposes them is our friend. Those Commie-lovers, in this country or elsewhere, who profess to be "outraged" by South Africa's action in this instance are not only hypocrites but also are not acting in the best interests of the United States.
