LONDON - Nelson Mandela said on Friday he was "pained" by British Prime Minister Tony Blair's waging war on Iraq, Britain's Mirror newspaper reported.

In an astonishing attack on the Prime Minister and U.S. President George Bush, he said in London: "To see young political leaders of the developed world act in ways that undermine some of the noblest attempts of humanity to deal with historical legacies, pains me greatly and makes me worry immensely about our future."

Mandela condemned the two leaders for riding roughshod over international law by acting alone. In a bitter swipe, he added: "We have a common obligation to care for each other, particularly in conditions that foster behavior to the contrary."

Excellent piece!!! Thank you again, Aqil. Mandela's message is clear and correct in my opinion. These acts of aggression are not only about political differences...he is so right! Africans should not be blinded and fooled by what appears to be a generous and supportive hand of the Bush administration. "Beware of the man who comes bearing gifts." Once again the Europeans step foot on African soil to do what they do best--implement the 3 C's: Civilize, Consume and Control--and we welcome them with open arms. What are we trading for this time? Does Africa really believe that the white man has changed any? Why is it that whereever there's a European on this planet, there's chaos? (Oops, there's another "C"!)

I agree that it is an excellent piece, but i wonder why it's posted here without the owner's permission.

You know the rules Aqil, why do you keep doing this?

Aqil ... no Member should add content to the site that does not belong to them, unless they have included the owner's permission for it to be posted here.

When we don't have permission, we are allowed to add a few lines of the property and link to where it can be read in its entirety.

We must respect what belongs to others if we want others to respect what belongs to us.

Anything other than this is breaking the rules and should be removed.

Thanks.

I know this is my first status update since 2020 begin, but all of us agree that 2020 delivered a low-blow
to each of us with the miscellaneous events we have recently seen which brought all of us great displeasure.
