Mugabe: The Wonderful Thing for a Despot..
Is the world powerless to do anything about a despot like Robert Mugabe and his murderous regime? Or are they unwilling to act because they have investments in the country like the senior Tories who are defying their leader's instruction to remove all economic ties? Then we have Thabo Mbeki, who is reportedly lobbying other African leaders to legitimise the results of the second 'election', where people were forced to vote for Mugabe, under threat of death and yet still many brave people spoiled their ballots and wrote messages of support for the MDC (even though they'd been told by the government they knew how they would vote and they would be killed if they did anything but vote for Mugabe and Zanu PF). I cannot see how much more evidence the powers that be need to act, unless of course it isn't in their personal interest to do so.
