For all the genuine kak that our friends at BOSS did cause, it is a rather enjoyable irony that they get blamed for the one they didn't do !

The old government brought this upon themselves - it is virtually irrelavant whether or whether not they were responsible for this specific incident. There were thousands more for which they have not been held accountable. Their credibility will always be questionable because that is exactly how they chose to do business. Live with it. Move on. Just hope they don't unearth some of the real wrongdoings for which that government was genuinely responsible.

And for all the genuine k*k that our "freedom" fighter comrades are still getting up to (which we do know of)...I guess they too may reap what they sow....my guess is there is just as much we civvies don't know about their dirty tricks and their real motives... :idea:

I've always said, they should get "over themselves"...and move on, however they can't seem to .. :idea:

Wrong, it will show the old regime up in a bad light.

Ja, its not hip, vogue, and it wont serve to discredit anyone who served their country in the old REGIME....Anyway I'm sure theirs one more name on the wall of shame today... :twisted: :wink:

Makes me think of that Leon Schuster movie, were the guy was given two cables, Don't let them touch! he was told...And then the whole power station's chimney imploded ....In reality the one event had no bearing on the other :idea:

KB , what is so shocking about that statement? The apartheid govt. did alot of nasty things in their day and don´t deny it. So did the ANC. Our illustrious police commissioner Mr Macbride aka Magoo´s bar bomber comes to mind. So I am not saying that they definately did do it , but if you look at the political climate of the day and what was going on and knowing what we know now, there is a very good possibility that the apartheid govt. had a hand in Machel's crash.

giac64, READ THE REPORT.

You can not have it both ways unless all you are trying to do is to gets your post count up :?: :?: Either you believe the report or you do not.

What does "So I am not saying that they definitely did do it , but if you look at the political climate of the day and what was going on and knowing what we know now, there is a very good possibility that the apartheid govt. had a hand in Machel's crash." mean for goodness sake.

Have you bothered to read the report? If you would like an copy I would be happy to send the link to you.

If you think the report is nonsense, stand up and be counted. Put your facts on the table for people to crit, hopefully without the same innuendo you are using.
