Terrorists given a pat on the back!

In an article entitled SA's war veterans confront demons in the bush, Florence Panoussian describes the psychological work done with so-called war veterans from the apartheid era.

These war veterans are from the armed wings of the ANC, IFP and PAC.

By calling them SA's war veterans, Panoussian paints a picture of veterans representing the people of South Africa. But, far from it!

These men are not war veterans! They are terrorism veterans! These are men that planted bombs to blow up civilians! Those are not acts of war! They are acts of extreme cowardice that could only be perpetrated by terrorists. But, then again, calling them terrorists is not politically correct (PC)! That is why they are called war veterans! What a war! Blowing up innocent civilians!

Please don't tell me that it was collateral damage expected in a war! If it was a "war" singularly aimed at hitting military targets, I could accept it, since the previous government committed many atrocities that violated the freedoms and rights of many people. However, many of the targets were civilians! That is NOT collateral damage! That is chickenheartedness! Only a chicken with a yellow under-belly will target innocent civilians and call that bravery!

The ANC's yellow under-belly still shows today in that it still murders around 50,000+ innocent civilians every year and then calls it by its euphemism: abortion! I have also shown elsewhere how the ANC has no back bone to stand against atrocities committed in other countries! Just look how South Africa have soft-peddled on the gross human rights violations in Zimbabwe. The result is even more violations!

A spade is a spade and a terrorist is a terrorist. You can take an apple and call it an orange as many times as you want, it will not become an orange!

By calling a terrorist a "war veteran" we are simply spreading lies, and there will never be any truth or reconciliation. Reconciliation can only be accomplished when the full truth is applied. By using softening euphemisms we cannot get to the truth. By doing that, the horror experienced by the many victims of this mindless terrorism is denied, therefore showing great disrespect to those victims.

The fact is that these terrorists need to come to a point where they acknowledge the evil they committed, and they MUST acknowledge it as wrong and evil! By simply letting them deal with their "demons" in a psycho-babble session will not bring peace to their hearts. This will only make them feel that they are fine and that what they did was acceptable, while neither of these assessments would be true!

They need to be brought to the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ. It is only there that they can find forgiveness which will result in peace for their hearts. It is as they admit their heinous sins, and turn from those sins by actively acknowledging that those acts were evil before a holy God, and further believing in Jesus Christ as the One who died for the sins of sinners, that they will find the deliverance that only Jesus Christ can bring!
