Paul B.,

Thanks for your elaboration on the ANC.

However, your subsequent paragraph copied below contradicts "unconditional
support" for any foreign state, it being that "airy opinion" you reproach.
Indeed, if I hear someone in demo giving "unconditional support" to the
Cuban government or the Venezuelan government, I react that the person is
either immature politically or, worse, a Stalinist. At minimum, it is
ineffective as a turn of phrase trying to capture opposition to my
country's practices abroad, i.e., U.S. imperialism.
