Bravo to the U.S. Senate for the override of President Reagan's veto on South African sanctions.
For the first time in nearly six years, the U.S. government has acted wisely, both from a political as well as moral standpoint.
Apartheid is dying and it is important that the United States be in a position to deal with the inevitable black leadership in South Africa. At the same time, the United States is seen as opposing human rights violations from a non-communist government--a refreshing departure from past Reagan Administration actions.
In summary, the Congress is to be congratulated for true statesmanship.
