Why are there are no South African leaders here? Surely people like Vorster and Botha were notable cold war figures. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 12:49, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
I agree - they were quite notable. South Africa was the West's staunchest ally in the Cold War and even sent its troops to fight in Angola and Namibia. The Apartheid policy of the regime only created significant problems for public relations in the Reagan era, when the Eastern Bloc was near its last gasps.
