> Why does everyone make a big deal about a man who kills his enemies? I don't think Amin is a bad guy because he slaughtered the dissenters. Personally, I think his method is far more practical than the democratic method. I know if I were a leader, I would rather have my enemies dead than alive breeding dissent among my subjects. A wise man once said that the best way to make everyone agree with you is to kill all those that disagree. I cannot imagine anyone disagreeing.
What you seem to be saying that human life has no vaule, so its no big deal to kill off dissnters.... I don't agree for spiritual reasons. Howvever looking at this very cold bloodedly, no dared to tell Stalin that Hitler seemed to be getting to attack the USSR in 1941. Just as on the German side, nobody wnated to tell Hitler that his idee fixe might have tremendous problems! Even Machivelli said, " that its better to be feared than loved ", and that pppeople should expect to be punished when they goy out of line, not that they should be murdered out of hand! Rich
