"As for the enemies of freedom, those who are potential adversaries, they will be reminded that peace is the highest aspiration of the American people. We will negotiate for it, sacrifice for it; we will not surrender for it, now or ever." - Reagan, January 20, 1981

"In Vietnam, we tried and failed in a just cause. No More Vietnams can mean we will not try again. It should mean we will not fail again." - from No More Vietnams by Richard Nixon

Idi Amin and East Germany

I took a great book out of the library about East Germany's (GDR) policy in Africa. Here is what it says about the GDR and Idi Amin

It seems that two East German official who died in the GDR's embassy in Kampala at the time of the Tanzanian-backed invasion of Uganda in 1979, immediately before deaths had been desperately endeavoring to remove all compromising materials which linked the GDR with the operations of the notorious Ugandan secret police and Amin's "State Research Bureau".
