You might have forgotten to mention this side of Mandela. http://donboys.cstnews.com/nelson-mandela-secular-saint-gone-to-his-reward
Fascinating, a complete fail in Chicago; yet, this hypocritical politico advocates for gun control when he can't control violence within his own area of responsibility. It would seem realistic to clean up one's own area of responsibility before advocating it in others. One usually leads by example. However, this is Chicago - thug capital of the US.
So now the US military is to be used a mercenaries. Yep, troops die and the government rakes in the bucks. A better option would be to send congress and the administration since all they do is eat, pass methane gas, occupy space, vacation, campaign, and hide from meeting with their constituents. So no great loss.
