12. Reagan's rhetoric was lip service at best…

Reagan believed that the white SA govt. was an ally against Communism on the African continent and felt that their removal and replacement with an ANC led government was problematic.

And why else were the UN sanctions imposed? Against the Apartheid regime which was running the country.

Your argument follows Reagan's own, one which delayed the removal of Apartheid from South Africa.
