    Just to demonstrate the ridiculousness of the centerpiece of the MacCain campaign

    Washington, D.C. (AHN) - President George Bush signed a bill on Tuesday taking Nobel Peace Prize winner and former South African President Nelson Mandela off the U.S. government's terror watch list.

    Under the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act, Mandela and all other former members of the African National Congress (ANC), which was considered a terrorist organization by South Africa's apartheid regime, would need a certification from the secretary of state before he could visit the United States. The President's signing into law of H.R. 5690 ensures that all former members of the ANC are no longer considered "aliens inadmissible due to terrorist or criminal activities."

    Critics and White House officials have long called for updating the three-decade old U.S. terror watch list. U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had expressed embarrassment over the government policy in April, saying, "I still have to waive in my own counterpart, the foreign minister of South Africa, not to mention the great leader Nelson Mandela."

    Mandela, who was feted over the weekend with a huge concert in London's Hyde Park to mark his 90th birthday, spent 27 years in South African prisons under apartheid rule.

    "Today the United States finally has removed from its legal code a vestige of that time of collective insults against human dignity," House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Howard Berman, the bill's main sponsor, said in a written statement.

    "The label of 'terrorist' will no longer be affixed to associates of the ANC -- among them one of the world's great heroes, Nelson Mandela. Our country stands with those who struggled to bring the reprehensible system of Apartheid to an end," he added.

    There's no doubt the ANC was a terrorist organization: during the 1980s, they killed thousands of white civilians by such as blowing up packed restaurants and setting landmines off under farmers' trucks. What seems to get some off terrorist lists is if they achieve statehood. With the likely accession of obama followed by the abandonment of iraq, and the possible take over by al qaeda, they might be the next to be taken off the terrorist list.

    Nah, George doesn't have to pretend to like Putin-ki a nymore. His "regime" under Dmitry isn't getting any better for you is it? Hey Stalin, What does it feel like to have your comrade kissing Hugo's ass?

    You really should have come from ANY other country to be talking about terrorism. You can dig up crap till hell freezes over, and it will never change the fact that Russia is a communist country that blatantly has only one use for it's people. The prize? You might get to live another day. Nothing ever changed, just the name. Do you think the rest of the world doesn't know this?

    Is this the kind of drivel you guys believe?

    Yeah, uh-huh...

    The word on our street is that Russia is not part of any communist, or even socialist country any more.
