  • Nelson Mandela tapes reveal South African leader as a man 'without bitterness' - World - CBC News
    consideration It does help put things in perspective Mohamed El Erian the CEO of Pimco the world s largest bond investment firm also recommends that political and business leaders ask themselves What would Nelson Mandela do Mr Mandela s example is also relevant for the advanced countries El Erian writes in the Huffington Post While serving as South Africa s president in 1998 Mandela speaks to Mary Grace Mandela Michel the daughter of Saint Lucia s Deputy Prime Minister who was named after Mandela Reuters U S President Barack Obama says that he too looks to Mandela s example In his foreword to Mandela s Conversations with Myself Obama writes that he first became politically active around the divestment campaign in the early 1980s when church groups and other activists urged boycotts and pushed companies to pull their investments out of South Afraica as a way to help end apartheid Over the years I continued to watch Nelson Mandela with a sense of admiration and humility inspired by the sense of possibility that his own life demonstrated and awed by the sacrifices necessary to achieve his dream of justice and equality Obama writes Mandela s central principle In another clip from the Stengel interviews that s part of the Ideas program Mandela explains the central principle by which he lives his life He calls it ubuntu a word that comes from a Zulu proverb As Mandela tells Stengel it means that a person is a person because of other people Here s a timeline of the life and times of Nelson Mandela His own presidency was still a few years away when he explained ubuntu to Stengel If you are a president you are a president because your people have put you in that position You must never forget that You are a human being because other human beings want you to play that role of being a human being Of course in order to play the role that he did Mandela had to survive 27 years of imprisonment I had never lost hope that this great transformation would occur because I always knew that down deep in every human heart there is mercy and generosity No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion If people can learn to hate they can be taught to love For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite Nelson Mandela In a 2004 CBC documentary Madiba The Life and Times of Nelson Mandela also produced by Benger Mandela says he made it through by never parting with his dignity I would not and could not give myself up to despair that way lay defeat and death Plus he had a dream I had never lost hope that this great transformation would occur because I always knew that down deep in every human heart there is mercy and generosity No one is born hating another person because of the

  • Brian Stewart: The enduring power of Henry Kissinger - World - CBC News
    few years was able to leverage this new relationship with China into a new balance of global giants This then permitted Kissinger to first negotiate the end to the long war in Vietnam in 1975 and then to further draw a worried Soviet Union into deeper détente the Helsinki accords of 1977 Analytically timeless Kissinger found himself under fire in these years from both the left which viewed him as a warmongering defender of dictatorships and from right wing Republicans especially Ronald Reagan style cold warriors who loathed him as a weak kneed appeaser of world Communism Fundamentally Kissinger offended the two traditional forces in U S diplomacy both of which flow from the country s firm belief in its exceptional national virtue The isolationist wing distrusted such grubby moves to cement foreign alliances while the idealistic crusaders for U S interventionism to export American democracy and commercial values were horrified by his dealings with Beijing and Moscow These days many of Kissinger s admirers believe that one of his biggest contributions over the years was to force Americans to grow up and take a more sophisticated view of world essentially to see it as a world that America can neither dominate as it once believed nor withdraw from as it once hoped It is a legacy that can be seen today in President Barack Obama and a good part of the U S foreign policy establishment who seem to share Kissinger s general view of statecraft particularly as regards China and Russia Even so it has not stilled the harsh criticism that has continued to dog Kissinger s reputation for duplicity and amoral callousness in the way he conducted foreign affairs The late British American writer Christopher Hitchens wrote a fiercely accusatory book demanding Kissinger be tried for crimes against humanity for his role in helping overthrow the elected socialist government of Chile in 1973 and for the years of oppression under General Augusto Pinochet that followed Both the destabilization of Chile allegedly an effort to save it from Communism and the secret bombing of Vietcong supply depots in Cambodia during the Vietnam War remain deep stains on the Kissinger record The setbacks he encountered as a statesmen and the antagonism he engendered as a person stemmed from the perceived amorality of his geopolitical calculations wrote historian Walter Isaacson in his very balanced biography Kissinger And yet people still seek his advice because his worldview offers such a thoughtful framework to test certain strategies against There is also the man s intellectual brilliance which even strong critics concede and his remarkable ability to vividly conceptualize patterns and relationships among different events and to make the hard choices abundantly clear As foreign affairs analyst Robert Kaplan wrote recently in a glowing review of Kissinger s legacy for The Atlantic magazine Kissinger s classic realism is emotionally unsatisfying but analytically timeless I suppose that s why in any world crisis there always does come that point when like it or not

  • Neil Macdonald: How serious is Obama about curbing the drone surge? - World - CBC News
    to the American military which in principle operates under more transparent constraints than the CIA Further he said he has signed new rules providing for more oversight and clarity on targeting including what some are calling special kill courts to vet the lethal strikes in the first place Obama also talked about eventually winding it all down This war like all wars must end That s what history advises That s what our democracy demands Not specifically targeted Still much remains unexplained Obama for example acknowledged the CIA has killed four American citizens abroad with drone mounted missiles Three said the president were not specifically targeted No explanation was given At least one of the four Abdulrahman Anwar al Awlaki was obliterated in 2011 as he gathered with other men one evening in Yemen His father was a radical al Qaeda cleric the CIA also tracked and killed in a separate strike two weeks earlier but there has been no mention in any reports that the son had been considered a terrorist The strike on the younger al Awlaki has been widely described as a mistake Obama reportedly was angry when he was told of it but killing one of your own citizens on an erroneous presumption is pretty serious And that s to say nothing of all the other drone killings of non U S citizens that were based on bad intelligence or mistakes For years the American public has by and large been just fine with these tactics Out of sight out of mind and all that plus innocent casualties are an unfortunate byproduct of war so sorry nothing can be done It s also true without question that the drone strikes have done away with some pretty evil individuals who were indeed planning or attempting to kill Americans Most experts here take a nuanced view Michael O Hanlon a military analyst at the left leaning Brookings Institution welcomed Obama s new guidelines I think every time you use a drone or a commando or any other kind of state sponsored assassination whether it is a new technology or not you have to have extremely good reasons and go through multiple rounds of reasoning But when you are at war you also have to kill people who are trying to kill you Consider though that given the awesome worldwide reach of the American intelligence machine why has it taken so many years to put these new guidelines in place And are even more needed As Obama put it For the families of these dead civilians no words or legal construct can justify their loss Consider also that Obama fully intends to keep up the drone assassinations whenever he deems it necessary As a sop to concerned conservatives he tossed a line into the speech saying No president should ever deploy armed drones over U S soil The rest of the world is left to take whatever comfort it can find from that Canadians who take a fairly forgiving

  • Nahlah Ayed: Vote-wary Iranians mull Ahmadinejad's successor - World - CBC News
    000 to be smuggled out of Iran and claimed asylum in the U K after finding out that he was wanted by Iranian intelligence Though now a refugee far from home he still plays a role by using Twitter and Facebook to talk to young people Last time he was encouraging them to vote Today he s urging them to boycott It s been 35 years of cheating the people in elections he says adding this time is not going to be any different Still competition Still to some extent anyway this election has already become somewhat unpredictable The last minute registration of the 79 year old former president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani an establishment stalwart yet favoured by reformists surprised many Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani a former president with at least some reformist credentials has again thrown his hat in the ring Reuters Until then the names that dominated were those of the nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili a conservative regime loyalist and Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf the mayor of Tehran and a former chief of the ultra loyalist Revolutionary Guard There is also a side competition brewing between the traditionalists and a younger generation of hardliners notes Suzanne Maloney senior fellow at the Brookings Institution s Saban Centre for Middle East Policy in Washington And Iran s decision makers will be watching these candidates carefully before they make a decision on whom they will support As such she adds the campaign still matters It is not real democracy not by any stretch of the imagination she said in an interview But it is a competition and it is reflective of shifting political trends within society Much of Iran s electorate is clearly seized by the ailing economy and unemployment brought on partly because of Western sanctions imposed over Iran s nuclear ambitions Those concerns alone will motivate many Iranians to go to the polls For the establishment clerics however the election is also very much about the survival of the system born in the 1979 Islamic revolution Their biggest conundrum may not the opposition per se but the younger generation of hardliners represented at the last minute by none other than Mashaei loathed by the establishment but Ahmadinejad s clearly preferred successor Ahmadinejad who has reached his two term limit seems to want to keep a hand in the presidency despite his imminent departure There is real concern about what it is that Ahmadinejad is capable of doing if Mashaei is rejected as a candidate or loses the election says Maloney Yet none of that matters much to those alienated by the system according to Akhtari as well as Soltani and his fellow activists who describe the entire exercise as a farce What they re doing with Zahra Soltani says is countering fiction with fiction What the average Iranian is being presented is really a series of false choices he says The Iranian people deserve a much better future Share Tools Report Typo Send Feedback Stay Connected with CBC News Mobile Facebook
