Default Zimbabwe - Mugabe

If the c*** 'retains' power, where do we go from here?

Does the world watch the c*** continue?

I'm not very au fait with the power of the Zimbabwean Armed Froces. Where are they one the world scale of things? Towards the Grenada end, or more towards Vietnam?

Is it down to the lake, I fear

Horrible situation and a VERY tricky one I reckon.

One must understand the African mentality - for many Africans he was a great hero in standing up to the Ian Smith regime in Rhodesia as it was. Imagine Churchill losing the plot in the 60's - would the Brits have been hard on him?

(Yes, I know he lost the '45 election but......)

In the West we do not appreciate how tribal Africa still is - and until they get over that, it will always be a relative basket case.

The way ahead in Africa? They need to suffer more until they get themselves together - we can not impose anything.

As for no oil in Zim, there's plenty of other good stuff but you are sadly right. However, oil is not called black gold for nothing and we all benefit from access to it so......

Next step? Bloodbath, hand wringing, pointless sanctions and further abuses of power.

Just f***ing pray that Zuma doesn't get in power and send SA into chaos. The Boer are serious tough bastards and the damage they would do on the Zulus (still think the Xhosa are a peaceful tribe) would make the IRA tremble.

Still, how can I hate a continent that has given us Evra, Fortune, Bailey and almost Mark Fish?

Not quite.

If it's about human rights, why haven't we got a military presence in Saudi?

It's not all to do with oil no, but alot of it is.
