De Klerk Retrospective ~ Peaceful Power Transfer

Frost interviews Former South African President FW de Klerk... De Klerk impresses me as one of the few heroic Washingtonian leaders who -- when at a critical cusp point -- chose a pathway towards peace and liberty and succession of power and away from dictatorship and oppression. Former Soviet leader Gorbachev is another one. Can lessons be learned here for the leadership of Zimbabwe, Kashmir, China, Cyprus, Paisraelistine, Iran, and elsewhere?
