No "good" men

There are no good men in war. I'm not apologizing for Nelson Mandela's actions or the actions of his affiliates either. My point: Apartheid ended. He helped. I condemn the actions but the deed is done. I respect that.

It's the same to be said for Lincoln.

Was the man a horrible president? Yes.

Could he have bought all the slaves, emancipating them in the process and saving hundreds of thousands of lives? Yes.

Did he help to end slavery in this country? Yes.

Once again, I respect the deed.
