The West had always hated Mandela until they managed to get him to tolerate neoliberalism, and even then they were not happy with him until he died. They were not happy when Mandela said that "if there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America. They don't care for human beings."

They were not happy when Mandela said that "there is no doubt that the United States now feels that they are the only superpower in the world and they can do what they like."

They were aghast when Mandela praised Fidel Castro and Cuba and even said "we know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.”

They thought Mandela was impertinent when he said that "if the United States of America or Britain is having elections, they don't ask for observers from Africa or from Asia. But when we have elections, they want observers."

Commenting on the Wall Street engineered world financial crisis, Mandela said that it "starkly reminds us that many of the concepts that guided our sense of how the world and its affairs are best ordered, have suddenly been shown to be wanting.”

So it was not surprising that Margaret Thatcher called Mandela "a terrorist" and Reagan refused to support the American people's wish to boycott the South African apartheid regime.

China should just ignore what the West says. After all, not too long ago some American establishment figure even claimed that Martin Luther King Jr would've supported the US slaughter of Afghans, many of whom were innocent civilians, in Afghanistan! When it was King himself who called the US "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world"!!!
