Once Again...

Kim du Toit is absolutely brilliant! I think his analysis is dead on. Why are guys like Che and Castro revered by the left, but ones like Pinochet and Franco are reviled as barbarous? Sometimes necessity trumps morality.

Does this mean I approve? No. Does this mean they weren't monsters? Absolutely not. But they saved their countries from worse fates. In the end, Spain and Chile are better off with Franco and Pinochet than they would have been under Communist rule.

Not saying it is right, just saying it IS.
