Re: Tyrant

Here is a sobering perspective on Amin's legacy in Uganda:

"Forty years after Idi Amin Dada’s bloody regime came to an end, Ugandans are divided over how to view their former leader. For older Ugandans, the president’s eight years at the helm evokes nothing but bitter memories of terror, torture and massacres. But many younger Ugandans associate him with more positive qualities, such as that of a builder, a nationalist and a separatist. . . "

Time can really wreak havoc if history is not carefully documented to keep us informed.

When Amin died I was in Vienna, Austria. I saw his photo in the subway. The Indian flight was a horrible mess! What did he contribute to Uganda? He was a Muslim and supported the Arabs and not the Jews. He was too vocal about it. Let's face it! He was an idiot!! Too transparent for the world to see.




He was too vocal here!
