Sanctions Against South Africa

October 13, 1986

It is embarrassing to see the majority of the U.S. Congress, including both California senators, behaving as children. They cut off imports from South Africa, and then say it is unfair for South Africa to cut imports from the United States. It will hurt the American farmers.

For political reasons, or just plain ignorance of the situation, our "leaders" are meddling in the internal affairs of a distant, friendly country and making conditions worse for those they profess to help.

Until the members of Congress can straighten out their bumbling ways of correcting the problems of this country, they should stop telling other countries how to manage their affairs. The Marxists in Africa are celebrating their victory.
